My pet has the same thing wrong that he/she was just treated for. Can the veterinarian just prescribe the same medication that he/she did the last time?

Always call our animal hospital in Tampa and ask if this is a possibility.  We have many patients with chronic problems that can be  by just a handled with a phone call.  Sometimes our veterinarians require and examination even though your pet may be showing the same symptoms as he or she did the last time, because the problem may be different.  Many disease conditions can present with very similar symptoms or become complicated with additional illnesses.

If your pet has not been seen by our veterinary clinic within 1 year, an exam is required by law.  Contact our veterinary office in Tampa with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
