The program shall also include a documented onsite visit to the pet store premises by a California-licensed veterinarian at least once a year.(C) The euthanasia performed pursuant to subparagraph (B) may be performed by a pet store operator or an employee of a pet store only if a California-licensed veterinarian has certified, in writing, that the pet store operator or employee is properly trained and proficient in performing the method of euthanasia on that particular species. The certification shall be valid for a period of not more than three years, and may be recertified for additional periods of three years. Each certification of a pet store operator or employee shall be retained by the pet store for three years, unless a longer period is otherwise required under state law. The certification shall be made available, upon request, to appropriate law enforcement officers exercising authority pursuant to Section 122356.Several cities in California have already passed similar laws — San Francisco enacted its pet store regulations in February, joining Los Angeles and San Diego in restricting pet store sales to rescued animals.
