Customer Question

Can you call in a Bactrim medication for my 6 pound Yorkie. She has a UTI and I can't get ahold of her Veterinarian until Monday and our emergency clinic is an hour and 1/2 away. She has frank blood in her urine and is having urinary frequency and she cries when she urinates. If you can't is there online Veterinarians that can?

Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about your Yorkie. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian. As it says in the disclaimer, this website is for information only. Only a veterinarian who has seen and examined your dog, who has a "client patient relationship" with you, can call in or write you a prescription. Since I can't see and examine her, it is illegal for me to prescribe or diagnose your dog. I would be happy to answer questions about her, so let me know if I can help you with any questions about her you have.
