New York Senator Charles Schumer and Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal are calling for more affordable meds for pet owners. Their "Fairness to Pet Owners Act," aims to save pet owners hundreds of dollars a year by giving them access to their pets' prescriptions and therefore the ability to shop around online or at pet stores for the best prices.
