A note about prescription medications and prescription refills:
FirstVet cannot provide prescriptions or refills for medication. When performing telehealth services, medical professionals must comply with laws and regulations in the state in which they are licensed. In order for a veterinarian to legally prescribe or refill medications, there must be an established veterinarian-client-patient-relationship (VCPR). This typically means that the vet has seen and performed a thorough physical exam of the patient in his or her practice within the past 12 months and is familiar with the client and pet’s needs.
Without an established VCPR, your FirstVet vet will not be able to prescribe medications. Please contact your pet’s regular veterinarian if you need to order or refill a prescription. If your regular vet only prescribed a small amount of medication, your pet should likely be re-evaluated before the treatment can be safely extended. Unfortunately, a video consult cannot replace this type of assessment.
