The California Department of Consumer Affairs
acknowledges pet guardians contracting for veterinary services at UCD VMTH are not provided
consumer protections which would be in effect should the services be provided by any other
veterinarian in the State of California. The following letter outlines DCA's proposed
solution which would include legislation to ensure the consumer is advised of the diminished
consumer protections at UCD VMTH before deciding to proceed with pet care at UCD VMTH.
This is most certainly a step in the right direction, and we sincerely hope the DCA will be
successful in their effort.
