Our clinic policy is that before we can prescribe or dispense additional medications for your pet, they are required to have had an ophthalmic progress examination and appropriate diagnostic tests by Dr. Whelan within the last 12 months. This way we can ensure that they are responding to the medications, and this is still the most appropriate treatment for them. All prescription refill requests are approved by Dr. Whelan.
If you are unable to or do not wish to return to our clinic for an ophthalmic progress exam for your pet within the appropriate time-frame, please contact your regular veterinarian for refills.
In Ontario, the right to prescribe medications as a veterinarian is a privilege.
The Veterinarians Act R.S.O 1990 and associated regulations require veterinarians to have a current Veterinarian Client Patient Relationship before medications can be prescribed or dispensed.
