In his Op-Ed in Saturday’s (Feb. 8) Star-Ledger/, “Vets want what’s best for the horse, not their pocketbooks,” Veterinarian Dr. Andy Roberts explains that he, like every veterinarian in America, took an oath of practice to protect animal health and welfare.

He says that for politicians to claim that thousands of equine veterinarians are violating this oath by opposing the 'Horseracing Integrity Act' on economic grounds is insulting and false.
