If your husband ended up inheriting the pharmacy business from his father, as separate property, you husband can do anything with the business without telling you, even taking off the father's name of the business without advising you beforehand.

If you own an interest in the business that you are writing about, it would be prudent of your husband to advise you before he made any business decisions with respect to it such as removing his father's name.
