The following is an excerpt from a California paper. I think every pet lover should take a moment and call following number to voice disapproval.

California Gov Schwarzenegger seems to think taking pets to the vet is a luxury. Evidently our Governor feels that one way to raise money for the state in these times is to create a 9% veterinary services tax.

Vet medication and other products are already subject to sales tax, but the Governor wants to add a separate tax on services -- classifying veterinary care a luxury item.In addition to pet owners, this will decimate rescues already struggling to pay vet bills.

For many pets and strays, it's literally a death sentence. Please take 15 seconds to stop this NOW. You can call the Governor's automated line any time, follow prompts to note your opposition, and it will take less than 15 seconds... You don't even have to talk to anyone.

Simply: 1) Call the Governor's office at 916-445-2841

2) Select your language choice. Press "1" for English.

3) Press "5"

4) Press "1" to select the issue of extending the sales tax to veterinary
services.

5) Press "2" to "OPPOSE" the Veterinary Services Tax proposal.

6) PLEASE COPY AND FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN CALIFORNIA.
