In-House Pharmacy

Our in-house pharmacy helps our clients receive treatment options for their pets immediately.

When it comes to the health and well-being of our pets, immediate access to necessary medications and expert advice can make all the difference. This is where our in-house pharmacy services come into play, offering a streamlined approach to pet care that is both efficient and effective.

Key Services of an In-House Pharmacy

Immediate Medication Access

One of the standout benefits of our in-house pharmacy is the ability for clients to receive treatment options for their pets immediately following their appointments. This convenience eliminates the wait time associated with external pharmacies, ensuring that your pet can start their recovery as soon as possible. Whether it's antibiotics, pain control medications, ophthalmic solutions, or ear meds, the in-house pharmacy stocks a wide range of products to support the treatment and health of your pets.

Expert Staff and Consultations

At the heart of our in-house pharmacy are the Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs), who play a crucial role in managing the pharmacy operations. They are not only skilled in dispensing medications but also offer valuable consultations to pet owners. They work closely with the veterinarians (DVMs) to create prescriptions, fill them accurately, and discuss medication details with clients, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the treatment plan.

Advantages for Pet Owners and Their Pets

Streamlined Care

Having an in-house pharmacy means that all aspects of your pet's care are centralized under one roof. This integration allows for a more cohesive healthcare experience, where treatment plans are executed without delay. For instance, if a prescription needs to be filled, it can often be dispensed at the time of the appointment, unless a special order is required. This efficiency is particularly beneficial for managing chronic conditions or addressing acute illnesses swiftly.

Quality and Safety

Our in-house pharmacy adheres to strict quality checks and sources its products only from qualified veterinary distributors. This commitment to quality ensures that all medications are safe, effective, and stored according to the manufacturers' requirements. We take great care in maintaining a designated pharmacy area, following best practices for product storage and handling, thereby upholding the highest standards of medication safety for your pets.

How to Use Our In-House Pharmacy

Prescription Refills

Requesting prescription refills is straightforward and designed with client convenience in mind. Pet owners can call or email us with their refill requests. The process involves an assessment by the DVM, followed by the RVTs filling the prescription upon approval. Clients are then informed when the medications are ready for pickup, or if additional actions are required, such as up-to-date bloodwork or exams. This process ensures that your pet's medication regimen is continuously managed without interruption.

Educational Resources

Understanding your pet's medication is key to their health and recovery. Our in-house pharmacy provides pet owners with access to reputable online resources and product brochures, offering comprehensive information on medication use, side effects, and benefits. This educational support empowers pet owners to make informed decisions about their pets' healthcare.
