A. In Australia, veterinarians are not obliged by law to write a prescription when requested, however most do so when asked. Some vets will charge a prescription fee but often that will be less than the savings you make buying the product from us. A recent survey* reported that over 50% of vets charge a pescription fee of less than $20 including 12% of vets that don't charge any fee at all (other than their usual consult fee). If your vet is unwilling to write a prescription or will only write a prescription if you pay a fee you feel is excessive, you are entitled to seek out another vet.
