Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
Yes, have your vet write or call in a script to your local Costco. You'll save quite a bit of money by picking up the B12 there. If your Aussie suffers from a malabsorptive disorder, administering oral B12 isn't likely to be of value.
Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
