Prescription Policy Changes 2023:
Unfortunately, we are no longer able to submit prescriptions for medications or cat food to any outside pharmacy on behalf of our clients.
The one exception will be the online Pharmacy that we host through Covetrus on our website. We are more than happy to provide you with a written prescription, but you will need to submit the prescription yourself (Download Tips Here) if you choose to use a pharmacy other than our Covetrus online pharmacy. Our patient records are electronically linked to Covetrus, allowing our staff to expedite the prescription submission process. We also have peace of mind that the medications provided by Covetrus are consistent, handled correctly and are reliable, especially the compounded drugs.
As online competition in the pharmacy industry explodes, we have seen an incredible rise in volume of prescription requests to many different pharmacies and it’s beginning to inhibit the availability of our doctors and staff. In Nevada, the veterinarian is required to personally authorize every prescription and refill. Our first priority is to be available to our clients and patients for appointments, surgeries, hospitalization, boarding, work-in medical emergencies, and questions received by phone call and email. With your help submitting prescriptions, our staff will be able to continue to provide the high level of care that we are known for.
If we receive a renewal request for your prescription from an outside pharmacy, we will contact you. We will provide a written prescription for you to submit to the pharmacy of your choice.
As a reminder, most prescriptions take 1 to 2 business days to approve.CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS TO AN OUTSIDE PHARMACY
