Good morning, Christine. Unfortunately, we do not write prescriptions on this website. Licensing requirements include a veterinarian being able to form a valid client-patient relationship with a hands-on examination. That said, I may be able to assist you in finding a veterinarian in your area to see since your vet has retired. If you'd like my help with this, I'll need your location.

Mmm. I'll be able to find my own.
Can't believe l just paid for a vetinary consult, just to be told I can't actually get one.
I think you need to state clearly on your website that you can't write scripts.
Also needs to state that the consult may not be with a licensed vet.
All a bit unsatisfactory really.
