Is there an online consultation and prescription service for animals?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the animal?

My dog has a bump on his lip. It looks infected, probably a cat scratch from one of the feral animals in my area

Veterinarian's Assistant: There are all sorts of infections your animal can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the animal's name and age?

My dog has a bump on his lip. It looks infected, probably a cat scratch from one of the feral animals in my area

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your animal?

He gets regular check ups. He is otherwise very healthy

Hi and merry Christmas!!

Unfortunately, only a vet that has examined a pet in person can script medication.

However. all you need to do is get raw honey at walmart and apply it several times a day,

It is a natural antibiotic that will heal the bumpin just a few days and has no side effects

You can apply raw honey to any sore or irritated areas. It is a remarkable healing agent:
