The answer; "Frankly, it is disappointing," tells Dr. Richard Panzero, "I like to think of us as an honest profession."
9OYS found Fido's medications are being diverted. Manufacturers are turning a blind eye and veterinarians are making nice buck off of it.
Tonight on 9OYS at 10pm see how the growing unlawful pet med trade is putting man's best friend in danger.
