My dog ate rat poison, where can I buy vitamin k1 in Toronto?

When I saw her poop out something bright green, I then realized she ingested the rat poison Bromadiolone. I took her to the vet and he said she appears fine and vitamin k1 was given to her. My question is where can I buy this in Canada either online or preferably in a store? I did some research online and couldn't find it anywhere except from the states or through a vet, which he tried to charge $100 for something that's $12 from the states. I'm limited on funds and would like to buy this directly and hopefully close to Toronto. Anyone know?

How long will she need to take the Vit K1? Can you ask your vet to write a prescription so you can order it online? If that's the route you go, make sure you do your homework. There are a lot of bogus pharmacy sites and the stuff they send out isn't always what it's claimed to be. For something like the situation your dog is in, you can't take chances that the Vit K1 is bogus.

He said she needs to take it for 3 weeks and from what I've seen, it doesn't require a prescription. I can order it online from the US but it's not the fastest way. I don't know why I can't find it here in Toronto or even in Canada yet. There has to be somewhere I can buy this locally or at least within the country.

I've ordered from the link provided above. They are a reputable, real, bricks and mortar pharmacy. I have gone in person as well.

P.S. I haven't ordered Vit K, just wanted to say the place is a good place.
