While I like the sound of this, I'm not sure it has any chance of passing. There is a new bill in the U.S. House would allow pet owners to deduct up to $3,500 for "qualified pet-care expenses" for household pets, including vet bills. Hmm, I wonder if agility lessons and frisbees would qualify? Actually, I think the idea is to make pet care more affordable, and reduce the number of pets who get abandoned when their families are having financial problems. Either way, I'd vote for it!
