California Veterinarian TAX

Hello my fellow pet lovers. I just made this phone call - it took about 10 seconds - do it if you think taxing the Veterinarians is the wrong way to solve the CA financial system . HUGE NUMBERS OF SICK ANIMALS WILL NOT RECEIVE TREATMENT IF THIS HORRIBLE TAX PASSES. What other 'services' will they want to tax next??? Pet care is already very expensive! Many pet owners, who are struggling in this economy, will simply choose to not go into the vet anymore.

Here's the scoop:

CA wants to legislate a 9% tax on all veterinary services, including meds.
This is really reprehensible at a time when so much is being done
to heighten awareness regarding caring for animals.

Veterinarians, whose training and licensing is as rigorous as that of MDs
will now have their care taxed as though they were dispensing canned goods.
And the cost of surgeries, neutering, etc. is high-an additional 9% will
discourage many from giving their pet care.

To OPPOSE this ridiculous tax:

*Please call the governor's office and make it known that balancing the
budget at the expense of our pets' health is not acceptable!!!
It only takes about 10 seconds because it's all automated.*
