DISPENSING MEDICATION

Yarmouth Veterinary Center has in-house and online pharmacies. 

In order for us to legally and ethically dispense or prescribe medications, we must perform an examination of the pet and consultation with owner for the problem for which the prescription is intended. This exam and consultation must be appropriately timed: for new pet problems it must be when the problem occurs; for chronic pet problems it must be, at a minimum, within the preceding year. 

When a multiple-refills or refill-as-needed prescription is needed the pet must be examined at least once yearly. More frequent exams might be needed; this decision is made by the veterinarian.
