This petition is for anyone who owns a horse, has an interest in horses or believes in protecting our right to choose.
The equine dentist that many of us have used for years has been ordered to cease his business by the Minnesota Board of Veterinary Medicine, because he is not a licensed veterinarian.
We are asking for your support for the proposed amendment to Minnesota Statutes 2004, section 156.12 removing the practice of equine dentistry from the purview of veterinary medicine.
This would allow us to choose who performs dentistry on our animals, much as we are able to choose the person who performs farrier work on our horses.
We in no way wish to imply that the equine veterinarian does not have an important role in the care of our horses, but rather that we would prefer the opportunity to choose who we use without interference.
We are not restricted to use a veterinarian for farrier work on our horse
This petition is for concerned horse owners, horse lovers or anyone who in interested in our right to choose.
