The commission is “seeking the views of consumers, veterinarians, pharmacists, manufacturers, business representatives, economists, lawyers, academics, and other interested parties” submitted by November 1, 2012. FTC’s workshop agenda includes discussions on how pet medications are distributed to consumers and “how these distribution practices affect consumer choice and price competition.” See FTC News Release, September 19, 2012.
