The Colorado Department of Revenue recently released a ruling determining that the prescription drug exemption applies to prescription pet food provided by a veterinarian as part of professional services.

Colorado exempts prescription drugs when provided by a "icensed provider" as part of professional services provided to a patient. A "licensed provider" includes veterinarians, and prescription drugs include prescription drugs provided to animals. However, food is excluded from the definition of drug.

The Department ruled that although pet food is generally not exempt, pet food prescribed by a veterinarian is exempt when it is (1) purchased from the veterinarian that prescribed the food, and (2) leaves the veterinarian's premises with the patient.
