That's how it is done here too. However, i bet we are closer to third world than ya'll up there.lol, noted
But you said it yourself: you live in a large city, surrounded by civilization. I tell ya, if you ever get to meet our average bush vet, you'd despair too. The only one within 500 miles works out of a tiny dilapidated shack with no running water, and he has neither the interest nor the expertise to research treatment on anything other than dogs. If I went to him with a newt problem, he'd say "Why don't you research it yourself and then tell me what you need". That's how it's done here - It's a third-world country.
Good news is, I have yet to need an actual prescription. On the two occasions I needed an injection of antibiotics for injured rescues, our vet had them in stock. I had to show him the proper injection sites, but it all worked out.
