Note: Your pet will need to have had a physical exam within the past year to order prescription products. Some prescriptions require that blood work be current within 6-12 months for safety reasons.
Should you prefer to order your pet’s prescriptions from other third party websites, please keep this information in mind:
Some websites that sell medicine:

Below is the Discount Prescription Waiver we require on account for approval of any orders requested through other online pharmacies. This waiver releases us of liability as the product is not coming from us, therefore we have no way of guaranteeing it’s safety and efficacy.
