From barnyards to the back woods to our own backyards, veterinarians treat animals in various settings. To provide complete care, veterinarians often need to travel with and use controlled substances--vital medications that can provide pain management, anesthesia or euthanasia. However, the Drug Enforcement Administration says that the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) does not permit veterinarians to take these medications beyond their registered places of business, often their veterinary clinics or homes. The DEA has notified some veterinarians that they are in violation of the law--leaving them confused and concerned.

Many in Congress, including veterinarians and U.S. Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) and Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) agree--the CSA must be amended so that our nation's animals do not suffer unnecessarily.

Our nation's animals need your help. Give veterinarians the tools they need to do their jobs. Tell Congress to pass the Veterinary Medicine Mobility Act (H.R. 1528/S. 1171) today!
