If my pet has a reoccuring illness, and I can recognize the symptoms, can I save time by purchasing the necessary prescription medication online?
No. Just as with people, prescription pet medication must be prescribed by a medical professional every time it's needed. Sometimes you may even need to see more than one vet, especially if your pet needs to see a specialist to receive a full diagnosis.
That said, once your pet has a prescription, you can save money by purchasing discount pet medication from an online pet pharmacy but, again, they will not sell you pet medication without a proper prescription. You can also request that your vet add refills to the prescription if it is a reoccuring illness.
