It identifies one of the doctors as a chiropractor who shouldn’t have been prescribing at all. The other didn’t have a “valid” license; I think you can assume she was a physician without a proper license.
I am surprised they get a vet. Unless I am mistaken, vets can prescribe opiat pain killers and tranquilizers for pets; granted the dose is often a bit smaller, but as their prescriptions are usually written out to “Fluffy Smith” and many cats and dogs have human names I doubt many pharmasists will pay attention to DVM on the prescription pad.
I am on oxycontin 40 mg. 5 times a day for unbarable cancer pain. If it were not for this drug, I would not be alive today. I am terminal, but it will make my getting there a lot more bareable. andersonpoo.
