There are still a few signatures to reach the quota twenty-five thousand sign it too!
For this achievement the Animal Protection will deliver the entire dossier to the Ministry of Health.
If the request is accepted, even veterinarians, as is already the case for doctors humans, must indicate on the prescription the active ingredient of the drug prescribed.
The current regulations provides that our pet can not use generic drugs for human use, if there is the equivalent brand-name products for veterinary use. Paradox without meaning, when we almost force you to use the ones that cost less.
Have you wondered why? I'll explain in a few words, the drugs of our animals will have to pay us completely, there is no mutual assistance, and therefore the state prefers to make them pay more.
This is not right!
During an interview with the delegate represented Enpa provided some data, which I will carry to make them public to you.
Were taken for example certain drugs to calculate the differential between the veterinary and for human use the generic.
In the case of phenobarbital for example, switching from 5 euro for the human version and 40 for veterinary medicine. Ranitidine instead has mysteriously risen from 8.59 to 16 euro, and the costs increase obviously if the therapy continues.
The care of our pets should not be a luxury, but for everyone!
