Receptionist: Hello, thank you for calling. How may I help you?
Caller: Hi, I was wondering if you had prednisone?
Receptionist: Yes…it’s a prescription medication though. Do you need a refill?
Caller: Well, I just called PetStore to ask if they carried it over the counter and they said no.
Receptionist: Are you a client here?
Caller: Huh? Oh, no. I got some from my regular vet for my dog because he had a platelet problem and I ran out. Can I get some more?
Receptionist: You would need to be seen by our veterinarian first.
Caller: Is it bad when they bleed out of their nose?
Receptionist: Yes. Yes, it is. Please go see a vet right now.
PSA of the day: When a pet with a platelet disorder bleeds from any orifice, do not pass Go, proceed directly to your vet. Thank you.
