At Happy Tails Veterinary Care, it is our policy to take every possible step to ensure that our patients receive the very best care possible. This includes ensuring that each patient receives the best pharmaceutical products available. This is especially important with life threatening illnesses such as heartworms.
To prescribe medications, we are required to have a valid client/patient/veterinarian relationship, which is defined by the state as having performed a physical exam within the last year. For some medications or illnesses, this may require more frequent check-ups or diagnostic bloodwork.
We carry a full inventory of veterinary pharmaceuticals and foods at competitive prices that are often cheaper than online warehouses or local pharmacies. For the clients’ convenience, we offer affordable home shipping through the US postal service and a call-ahead refill service. Additionally, we offer an online pharmacy through Vetsource. Our online pharmacy allows us to carry a larger variety of medications and pet products and ensures that our veterinarians can make sure sure your pets prescriptions are safe and appropriate, just as if the product was being purchased at our location.
We are aware there are many internet sites and catalog houses which sell pharmaceuticals directly to consumers. We understand trying to find the best value; however, Due to patient confidentiality and safety issues, Happy Tails Veterinary Care will not communicate (fax, email, or phone) or send prescriptions to outside internet or catalogue pharmacies.
Wherever you choose to have your pets medications filled, we want you to be able to make an educated decision. Please Consider the following points:
At HTVC, we work hard to ensure that we carry quality products that are the safest for your pet. This means ensuring the vaccinations, medications and products we provide to our patients are properly handled and stored per manufacturer recommendation. The items we offer from our pharmacy are obtained either directly from the manufacturer or through selected manufacturer-authorized distributors. Sourcing pharmaceuticals by these methods allows for chain-of-custody tracking and verification of pharmaceutical integrity.
Products purchased from our pharmacy are FULLY manufacturer-warranted and guaranteed. This warranty may be voided if the product is purchased from an outside source.
Many manufacturers maintain a strict policy of prescription medication sales exclusively through licensed veterinarians. This means that some veterinary products purchased through online warehouses or discount chains are either diverted, counterfeit, or from foreign suppliers.
Several online pharmacies including 1-800-PetMeds have been cited and fined by the FDA and state board of pharmacy for violating prescription procedures.
We cannot guarantee that medication from an outside pharmacy is legitimate, stored properly, correct, safe, and in the best interest of your pet.
If you choose to have a prescription filled elsewhere we will be glad to write a prescription at no cost. You can pick up your prescription at our office or we can mail it to you for $0.55. If you choose to use an internet or catalog pharmacy to obtain your pet's medications, we recommend you mail the original written prescription to the pharmacy.
Prescription Verification and Refill
If you would like to request a prescription refill, please contact us via phone, email, or our online form. Our staff will verify the refill and fill it within 1-2 business days. Once the prescription is filled you will be contacted by our staff. We do offer at-home shipping upon request on certain medications.
