Hello,

I am sorry to hear about your dog's eyes and that you are so worried.. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian.

This website is for information only, as it says in the disclaimer. It is illegal for a veterinarian to write a prescription, or prescribe prescription medication without establishing a "client patient" relationship, which usually means seeing and examining the pet. The veterinarians on this site cannot write a prescription for a dog we have not seen and cannot examine.

I would be happy to answer questions, and help you by providing information about eye conditions, alternatives to prescription medication, etc. If you would like my help, I would be happy to help. If you are just looking for someone to write you a prescription, I can't do that. That would be risking my veterinary license and livelihood.
