As of April 1, 2021 we will have cut professional ties with online pharmacies such as Chewy, 1-800-PETMEDS, Walmart, etc. This is due to filling inappropriate dosing of medications, incorrect medications, fake medications, and repeated miscommunication with clients. Because of this we feel that they have not upheld the standards that we deem appropriate. If you still wish to utilize these pharmacies, we will be happy to provide a written prescription and afterwards all communication regarding the prescription is between you and the pharmacy. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Prescription Policy (Effective 04/01/2021)
All prescriptions not filled through our pharmacy in-house or online (https://nsanimalcare.vetsfirstchoice.com/) require a written prescription and it is then the owner’s responsibility to send that prescription in themselves. We will not approve prescriptions through outside pharmacies via phone, email, or fax due to liability reasons. All patients are required to have had an exam within the last 12 months to maintain a valid vet-patient relationship for us to continue filling prescriptions. If the pharmacy will not/cannot accommodate a written script, you will need to find a different pharmacy. You may visit our online pharmacy at https://nsanimalcare.vetsfirstchoice.com/ or call our office to request a paper prescription. Please allow at least 24 hours for your paper prescription to be filled.
