DENVER (AP) — Colorado lawmakers want to ensure that dogs and cats are able to receive emergency care when they're injured in car accidents or natural disasters.
A bill being heard in a Senate committee Thursday would fix a technical glitch in the law that says it's a violation of the Veterinary Medicine Practice Act for emergency medical technicians to provide stabilizing care for pets.
Republican Sen. David Balmer is sponsoring the bill.
