Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, I'm Dr. Kara. I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment to review your concerns.
Veterinarians cannot write a prescription for a pet we have not physically examined. It is against the law to do so and we could lose our license for doing so.
But your previous veterinarian in Arkansas could write a prescription and submit it or call it in to the pharmacy of your choice and have the pharmacy send the medication to you. That veterinarian has a valid doctor/patient relationship with you and your pet and if your pet was recently examined at their clinic they could legally do that for you.
Best of luck to you and your kitty in your new home.
