Effective Immediately- July 16 2019
Village Veterinary Hospital is no longer accepting online faxes or requests from online pet pharmacies. Unfortunately, we are constantly learning of counterfeit or expired medications being distributed by online pharmacies. We have also encountered numerous errors on the part of the pharmacies resulting in additional risks to your pet. When medications are filled by outside pharmacies the medication's safety, efficacy, and authenticity are not guaranteed by the drug manufacturer or by us.
If you'd like your pet's medications filled by a third-party online pharmacy, you may call us to request a written prescription. We can write one out for you to pick up at our front desk. You can then submit to the pharmacy of your choice. You will also be asked to sign a waiver at that time stating you understand the risks of using a third party online pharmacy for your pet's medication. Please provide 24 hours notice if you'd like to come pick up a written prescription.
If you'd like to continue purchasing your pet's medications from us, not only would we appreciate you supporting a mom-owned local small business, but we'd be able to stand behind the safety and efficacy of the medication your pets are taking. We put a lot of time, energy, and thought into choosing which medications we keep in stock and recommend for your pets. You can order medications right on our website. Just click one the Shop Online Link.
If you have any questions please let us know. Your pet's safety is very important to us and we feel like you should be informed on this matter.
Dr. Koryn Swearingen and the Doctors and Staff of Village Veterinary Clinic.
