Yep, they already have the website up and running. Just do a google search for "Medicat".

Oops... my mistake. That's a private health care system for college-bound cats. The government Medicat website must still be in the creation stage.

What I'd like to see is a reverse CPAP that goes on your rear end for those of us who tend to be gassy at night.

Uh oh, you mean we are not supposed to connect our CPAP machine to our rear end? Wow, I bet that explains all the flatulence I have every morning!

RE: DMEs to begin delivering CPAPs for your pet
I had a cat that needed a CPAP. You could hear him all through the house, his snores were that loud.

I just downloaded the forms to fill out for one of our dogs, Sam. Wow, they want a lot of information! Some of it rather invasive. Does HIPAA apply here? Or would pets follow HIPPO?
