Effective September 1, 2019, the doctors of 360° Pet Medical will no longer be writing medication prescriptions or authorizing refills of medication through online pharmacies such as 1800-PetMeds, Chewy.com, Drs. Foster and Smith, etc. The bulk of online pharmacies are not providing medications that come direct from the manufacturer, but rather are re-selling products they purchase from veterinary practices or obtain from other unauthorized sources. As a result, the validity, safety, and efficacy of these medications cannot be verified, nor will manufacturers stand behind them.
For our patients’ safety, we will only script and authorize medication prescriptions through the following sources: our in-house pharmacy, human pharmacies (CVS, Rosauers, Costco, Rocky Mountain Pharmacy, etc), our internal on-line pharmacy (Vets First Choice) accessible through our website, or other direct-ship medical pharmacies such as Road Runner Pharmacy. While these examples are not all-inclusive, we are happy to confirm with you any other pharmacies you use and about which you may have questions.
This new policy does not apply to food prescriptions obtained via online pharmacies. Our previous practices regarding food prescriptions still apply. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Drs. Loni Odenbeck and Christine Kenyon, DVMs and owners of 360 Pet Medical
