Hello out there in blogland.
I just found out from my vet that I’ve had for 7 years and have always paid at the time of service, that my dog Izzy’s prescription for Novox (REALLY BAD HIPS. I was told this is a generic for Remadyl) could not be given an OK for unless she was seen by him.
I have been buying the drug online since it was so much cheaper.
I haven’t had to see the vet and he said by law he has to see a dog at least once a year to dispense meds.
Is this right?
I am currently unemployed and can barely pay my bills but don’t want Izzy to be in pain.
BTW, the vet also said she should have BOTH hips replaced at 5k each.
I am so depressed. Any suggestions out there?
