Most vets and pet clinics accept major credit cards and pre-paid debit cards for payment. Credit cards can be very convenient in an emergency, deferring payment and giving owners the time to make decisions based on pet care without immediate financial impact.
Can a vet prescribe medication without seeing the patient?
It is unlawful for a veterinarian to release, prescribe, and/or dispense any prescription drugs without having established a valid veterinary/client/patient relationship.
Can vets refuse to give you a prescription?
The only reason a veterinarian may refuse to give you a written prescription is for a justifiable veterinary medical reason such as a need to examine or monitor the animal.
