We have received a request to fill a prescription for your pet at an outside pharmacy. Before we move forward, we want to make sure you are aware that:
Many companies only honor product guarantees when a veterinarian prescribes and sells the product. Purchases from unauthorized distributors do not qualify for the same guarantee. Most of our manufacturer do not sale their product to outside pharmacies and do not know where these pharmacies products are coming from.
We can assure you that any prescription medication you purchase from us has been inspected and approved by the food and drug administration and has been manufactured and packaged in the United States according to government regulations.
If your pet has a reaction to the medication we can work with the manufacturer to cover the cost of treatment of adverse reactions and/or failure of the medication to prevent disease.
The majority of human pharmacists get little to no training in veterinary pharmacy and most pharmacists are not knowledgeable about animal physiology. This may lead to pharmacists suggesting changes your prescription, offering inaccurate substitutions, or they may describe a drug’s side effects on humans, even though those side effects do not occur in animals.
If a pharmacist, retail or online, suggests changing to a different drug or different dosage, please contact us right away. In addition we request you bring any prescription filled at an outside pharmacy into our clinic for inspection to confirm no changes have been made.
If you would still like to purchase your prescription at an outside pharmacy we need you to sign this document indicating we have informed you of all the possible risks associated with getting your pets medications from an outside pharmacy.
Your pet must maintain a current client patient relationship and receive an exam within the calendar year to be eligible for any medications to be prescribed.
