Veterinary organizations are hailing passage of the Veterinary Medicine Mobility Act in the U.S. House of Representatives this week with broad bi-partisan support. The U.S. Senate unanimously passed its version of the act, which is virtually identical to the House version, on January 8.
Passage of the bill will make it legal for veterinarians to transport and use controlled substances beyond their primary places of registration and across state lines to treat their animal patients. Previously, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has indicated that the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) barred veterinarians from taking controlled substances beyond their registered locations, such as their clinics, which limits medical decisions and treatment options for veterinarians who work in the field.
