The Heritage Foundation points out that Obamacare will raise taxes on medical devices that are used on humans and animals. And when the tax goes up, the cost will be passed to consumers — that would be pet owners.

The device tax is expected to raise costs for consumers. A recent survey of 181 manufacturers found that a 52.5 percent majority plan to “pass along some or all of the increased cost [of the tax] to our consumers.” Among North American manufacturers, the portion who said they would raise prices was an even higher 58 percent.
