Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible for you and Duke.

When was the last time Duke saw his vet?

What is your zip code?

When you take him in public, do you use a traditional leash and collar?

Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

Unfortunately, we are unable to prescribe any medication through the website. It's actually illegal for any medical provider (human or veterinary) to prescribe for any individual that we don't have an in person, hands-on relationship with.

That being said...the best option, since Duke saw his vet about 3 months ago, is to give them a call and explain to them how difficult he is for you to handle, and to ask them to send out some medication to help sedate him for the trip in. Since he was there recently, they should have no problem with it.

Another option would be to contact a mobile vet...a vet who comes to your own house to treat Duke. If you're not sure where one might be in your area, you can go to: ***** ***** plug in your zip code. They'll help you find one in your area.

I hope this helps.
