ACTION ALERT: Petition to Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners

Dr. Bob Rogers, DVM, the principal vet at the Critter Fixer Pet Hospital in Spring, Texas is requesting a hearing before the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to justify new rules that potentially reduce over-vaccination and its ill effects in the State of Texas.

Dr. Bob has been one of the leading advocates for vaccine reforms in Texas. Thanks to his persistence for many years leading up to it, the state (finally) confirmed its rabies protocol to the national standard of every three years in 2003. He has also worked tirelessly to educate veterinarian-students in Texas schools on the negative effects of over-vaccination. Moreover, he is always available to offer advice and support on vaccine education and reforms anywhere as needed nationwide.

Now we have a chance to help him.

Please print out, sign and fax the following petition to the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners.

I hereby petition the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to
adopt three rules as proposed by Dr. Bob Rogers to:

1. Prohibit the misrepresentation of small animal vaccinations by
Veterinarians

2. Require all Veterinarians in the practice of small animal medicine in
Texas to obtain two hours of continuing education on vaccinations. This
continuing education shall not be continuing education provided by a vaccine
manufacturer or their employees. 

3. Prohibit the allowance of Continuing education credits in Texas for
seminars where a conflict of interest may exist; where the speaker is a paid
employee of a company that makes a product involved in the topic or where
the seminar can be considered promotional. 

Pursuant to the Texas Administrative Code we request a hearing to present
information showing why these rules are necessary and justified.
