It is our goal to provide you with complete veterinary care in a professional and accessible atmosphere. That is why we offer an in house pharmacy, as well as an online pharmacy allowing your pets’ prescriptions to be delivered right to your front door!
When a medication is prescribed for your pet, it means that your veterinarian has made a decision that the medication is indicated to treat your pet’s health problem. Many prescription drugs are effective only for specific problems and may be harmful for your pet if used without a veterinary examination and diagnosis. Having these drugs available as prescription-only medications ensures that they are used appropriately.
- You can get it from your veterinarian if they keep it in stock.
- Your veterinarian can write (or call in) a prescription to a local pharmacy that stocks the medication.
- You can request the medication through our online pharmacy and your veterinarian will approve it to be shipped directly to your home.
In most states, it is unlawful for a veterinarian to write a prescription or dispense a prescription drug without a Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship.
To maintain a Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship, your veterinarian must see your pet regularly. How often they need to see your pet depends on your pet’s health. If your pet is on a prescription medicine, your veterinarian may need to reexamine your pet, check blood work, or perform other tests to monitor your pet’s response to treatment and determine if the medication needs to be changed.
