Letter | Bill shouldn’t limit low-cost services from animal shelters

There is a bill before the General Assembly that seeks to limit publicly available, low-cost pet services in South Carolina promoted by the South Carolina Association for Veterinarians. The bill is sponsored by House delegate David Hiott, R-Pickens and in the Senate by David Verdin, R-Laurens. The South Carolina Veterinary Association spokesperson, Simpsonville veterinarian Patricia Hill, contends the bill is necessary to protect the incomes of private veterinary entrepreneurs from what they deem unfair competition from lower cost services offered by animal shelters.
