HOA Board wants a letter from Vet confirming my elderly dogs condition. I have the records re Diagnosis of severe progressive degenerative disc disease.. but board members want a letter- they say thy won't be able to understand records (They got confused when idiot Community Manager gave them records for wrong dog someone ELSE gave her...It gets complicated..) so BOD said "Just get Dr to write letter confirming special condition". Prob is vet that did extensive tests no longer practicing in CA. Vet Hosp has records but say another doc can't write letter- only the diagnosing doctor can. Said ANOTHER vet must do SAME tests again to diagnose permanent condition so THAT Dr can write letter to confirm HIS records. This means $thousands again for what is established! Is that the law or policy?
