Pet Pharmacy Choices

Last updated: April 18, 2018

When you take your pet in for an exam, your veterinarian may determine your dog or cat needs a prescription medication. In these cases, it's important to know that you have a choice when it comes to where to fill your pet's prescription.

You can choose a pharmacy for your pet, the same way you would choose a pharmacy for yourself or your family. If you decide to get your prescription from other than your veterinarian's office, ask your veterinarian to write, call or fax in the prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.

The price of a prescription item is not the same at every pharmacy, so it can be a benefit to shop around. Online pharmacies provide the convenience and privacy of having the medication shipped right to your door. If you ever have a question about your pet's prescription, don't hesitate to give the Revival pharmacy a call at 800.786.4751. We are always happy to answer questions and provide you with information about the medication you will be giving your pet.

When choosing a pharmacy, it is important to make sure you are using an accredited and trustworthy pharmacy. Not all online pharmacies are safe to use. When looking to purchase from an online pharmacy, check that it is .Pharmacy accredited through the National Board of Pharmacy. A pharmacy that has this accreditation is safe to use. The Revival Animal Health pharmacy is proud to be accredited with .Pharmacy.

As a pet owner, you have lots of choices when it comes to your pet's health. That's why we are here to help you sort through it all, to help ensure your pet lives a happy and healthy life.
