We were dealing with an adoption. We had to get approval from the doctor to release information on the patient. I thought this was taking patient privacy a little too far. What do you think? . . . . . . . . . . . . Oh, you want the rest of the story? . . . We wanted to adopt a cat from the animal shelter . . . They wanted a statement from our VET about how we cared for our pet - which died about 2 years ago of old age. . . . but we had to give approval to the Vet to release our late pets records. Thoughts?
