I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,

Hello, I am sorry you have not gotten help from an expert before now. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. The reason you probably did not get help sooner is because you can only get prescription medication from a veterinarian who has seen and examined Jake, and has a "client patient relationship"with you. It is illegal for someone like me to write a prescription for a pet I have not seen; I could lose my license, which is my livlihood. I am sorry, I know you want to help Jake. I hope you can find a lower cost veterinarian in your area, or a shelter that has a low cost clinic. Let me know if I can answer or help with any question about Jake. If not, you can have your deposit returned by contacting customer service.
