To prevent confusion, we want to share our prescription policy with you. First, it is always best to use your local veterinary office for filling your medications. The products we carry are guaranteed by the manufacturer. They are the legitimate product. They will be issued at correct doses with the patients weight, medical history, medication interference, etc. taken into account. Human pharmacies don’t always know the interactions drugs have with pet medications, some of the medications we prescribe are also used on the human pharmaceutical side and don’t do the same things in pets that they do in humans.
Human pharmacists aren’t trained as veterinarians are to understand the complication of these items. Online pharmacies get their “medications” from all over the world. Some are legitimate, some are bootlegged and made to look legitimate. Online pharmacies are required by law to have the consent/authorization of a doctor to “prescribe” the medications you are requesting. But they cannot guarantee that the “medications” they are sending out are authentic and not diluted, harmful, etc. to your pet. They also don’t support what they sell. They have big corporate lawyers who will happily ruin a local veterinarians license on the corporations mistake, incorrect dose, faulty “medication, etc.”
Your pets health is the most important thing to us and we refuse to compromise that in the name of a “cheap deal” from a well marketed online “pharmacy.” If you chose to use an outside pharmacy-there is a $25 per script, per year, fill fee. Your pet has to continue to have their annual wellness exam with us in order to be allowed to continue to have the prescription filled. We reserve the right to refuse to authorize medication fills with certain pharmacies.
For your convenience, we have two online pharmacies we have a relationship with.
