Default Re: At my wits end with vets!

We also need prescriptions in the UK but fortunately our vets are pretty obliging, even though we actually buy insulin online as it is so much cheaper than getting it from them.
If it were me I would be putting in writing my very strong concerns today, reminding them of the risks to my dog if they refuse to do the prescription and saying that I would hold them entirely responsible if anything happened to my dog. I would also ask if they would give even one bottle (or half bottle or anything really) of insulin before your regular vet comes back then you can negotiate with them as to the future supply.

I'm really sorry for you to be in that position.
