Just seen this, and signed.  Think this is really important.  VAT is on so many things which aren't really "value added" but essentials.

Thanks for signing! I've now cross posted onto a few other forums and some members of other forums have cross posted again so hopefully we'll get loads of signatures  ;D ;D

It breaks my heart to think of animals being put to sleep because the owners cannot afford the vets bills because of the huge amount of VAT added to them  :'(

Signed.

I wonder if vets would be willing to put posters up?

It makes no odds to them as they don't gain from VAT. If anything it would give them more business as would make treatment more affordable. Also I would imagine it would save them a lot of paperwork.

We could always start our own. Perhaps more than on petition on the same subject might also make them stop and think. We could then cross-post to other sites that have an interest in pet bills like ponyclubs, dogs and suchlike ... we're all in the same boat so a strong lobby might help  :innocent:

Only just over a 1000 and we could have increased that  ;D

I dont know how many signatures it takes for anyone to do anything but know the one about a travel tax on roads was into the 100s of thousands maybe millions.

Oh. Drat. Well the site did say that they had so many signatures they could not display them all, so I guess others have signed in considerable numbers.

"This is a tax on sick and dying animals and can often mean the difference between an animal living or having to be destroyed. In many instances it is the poorer members of our society who are affected the most."
