Customer Question
Can I get flea...

Can I get flea prescriptions online?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?

Mac and Molly and they are both 8

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mac?

Mac is 32 lbs and Molly is 14 lbs

Unfortunately only a veterinarian that has physically examined Mac and Molly can legally prescribe medicines. Let me know if you have questions about products, though!
