Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand you are looking for a prescription of Cephalexin. I can help with this question, but I wanted you to know that a prescription will only be able to come from a veterinarian in your area who can perform a physical exam on King. Veterinarians in this format are unfortunately not allowed to prescribe medications.

Please let me know if you have any questions about King's skin condition. I will be able to address those questions.
