Pet Medications & Food
Medications & Food
For some medications, we will mail them to you from our in-house pharmacy or prescribe them to be filled by our online pharmacy. Our medications team will work with you to ensure your pet has the medications they need!
To request a medication refill, contact us by phone, email, text, or fill out our online form.
If your pet is on medications regularly, we offer automatic refills as a convenient way to be sure you always have the medication you need. Once we start your pet on automatic refills, our in-house or online pharmacy can mail more medication, typically every month. Our goal is to make things easier for you, so if you ever need to adjust an automatic refill schedule, or cancel it altogether, just let us know.
We routinely monitor the bloodwork of pets who are on medications long-term. This bloodwork helps ensure that the medication is working effectively without causing any unwanted side effects. In most cases, we’ll want to check your pet’s bloodwork every six months, though we may need to monitor things more closely, particularly at the beginning of treatment or if your pet’s health warrants closer attention.
We can only dispense prescription medications for pets we have examined within the past year and for whom we have current bloodwork if needed. If your pet needs medication but is overdue for an exam or bloodwork, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
About Prescription Diets
Prescription diets offer an effective way to help manage chronic conditions such as kidney disease, diabetes, urinary issues, obesity, and more. These diets are not found in pet stores and are available only with a prescription from your veterinarian. They are carefully formulated to treat specific conditions diagnosed by a veterinarian and typically are just part of a multi-faceted approach to treating the condition.
We do not stock prescription diets ourselves, but our clients have several options for buying prescription foods:
Order directly from the manufacturers, with free shipping direct to home:
- Purina ProPlan – Register with Purina ProPlan VetDirect and order your pet’s prescription food. Purina will contact us to authorize the prescription food.
- Hill’s Prescription Foods – We will initiate the authorization, and you will receive an email from Hill’s with a link to complete the food order.
For other foods, such as Royal Canin, order from our online pharmacy.
