I recently bought a black lab

Customer Question

I recently bought a black lab and I need a veterinarian to sign off on antivenin on Allivet for antivenin, she was almost bit by a cottonmouth two days ago. We've had severe weather recently and I'm in a rural area in Western Kentucky. I have been a paramedic for over 10 years and know how to administer.

Hello, I am sorry to hear your dog was bitten by a cottonmouth. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. By law, only a veterinarian with a "client patient relationship" with you and with Roxy can sign off on medication, meaning a veterinarian who has seen and examined her. I cannot legally write you a prescription since I can't see and examine her. This website, as it says in the disclaimer, is for information only; we cannot diagnose and prescribe. Giving antivenin 2 days after the bite will probably not help much. Let me know if I can help with or answer any questions, but I can't write you a prescription. Sorry.
