Prescription Refills and Requests
Please note: By Oregon law, a licensed veterinarian must have a valid Veterinary-Client-Patient Relationship with you and your animal in order to provide veterinary services. This means that a licensed veterinarian must have performed an exam within the last year in order for a prescription to be filled, a vaccine to be administered, or other health services performed. You can find additional details on the Oregon Veterinary Medial Association web site. In order to assure the safety and well being of your pet, Aloha Dog & Cat Hospital follows Oregon law when prescribing medication.
