Has she seen your regular veterinarian in the past year? If so your veterinarian should be able to fill the prescription for you or write you a prescription.

What is hurting her? Is it her hips ?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it is her hips, she can no longer see the Vet due to them going out of business abruptly. I cannot afford to take her to another veterinary. Can you prescribe them to her?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Meghan Denney, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Unfortunately, United States laws over veterinarians dictate that we cannot prescribe medications for a pet we have not physically examined. It can be really frustrating especially in cases like these.

Can you try a low-cost veterinarian, or sometimes shelters will provide low-cost veterinarian care?

There are some over the counter joint supplements you can purchase from amazon.com to try and help with the hip pain.

Yeah, we utilize them, they do not work. Can you prescribe my dog the Tramadol or not? Yes or No please? I love my dog and don't like to see her suffer a lower quality of life due to pain.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Meghan Denney, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I have told you above that, unfortunately, the US laws prohibit veterinarians from prescribing drugs to patients they have not examined so no I cannot prescribe any medications for your dog.

I can help you locate a low cost veterinarian if you can tell me where you are located
