    I thought through pet meds you could just give them your vet's information and they could contact them directly and have the script faxed over? Would this be a way to avoid the "writing fee" (which I find to be ridiculous, BTW.) Is the fee to pay for the ink or the extra work effort?

    It does work that way in the US at least Emma. Hopefully it does in England too.

    You'd think as often as you have Daisy in there they could at least write a prescription for free ...

    Monica, it can't be for the ink because the vet never has his own ink pen and has to get one from his tech!!

    I think it's wrong to charge a fee if it is a good client or a pet that has a chronic problem. I worked for a dr who squeezed pennies until they screamed and even he didn't charge to write a prescription!
