Hello Pamela, my name is ***** ***** I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in new York State. Thank you for using Just Answer. Unfortunately we are unable to provide prescriptions for medications online at Just Answer. Medications to treat anxiety are not prescribed online. doctors require a face to face meeting, especially the medications that are effective in treating anxiety but are in the benzodiazepine class, such as xanax, valium, etc. No it is not legal nor ethical to prescribe them online. I hope this answers your question. I am so sorry to hear about your dog and the trouble you are experiencing. I could help you with some non medication alternatives to coping with stress and anxiety if you would like. Linda D., LMSW, CASAC
