Prescriptions & Refills
Full Service In-House and Online Veterinary Pharmacy
Acredale Animal Hospital maintains a large inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, medicated shampoos, and parasite preventatives on-site. Therefore, we are proud to be able to provide your pet with the medications they need to recover from an injury or surgery or resolve a temporary illness. We will also make recommendations for the best choice of parasite preventatives based on your pet's individual needs. Some pets also require medication for chronic medical conditions. Our veterinarians are committed to refilling these chronic medications as needed for your pet while reviewing your pet's record to recommend the appropriate drug monitoring protocols and recheck exams when appropriate. Please see below for prescription refill options. In the event that we do not have a medication in stock, our inventory manager and pharmacy technicians will help you obtain it at the lowest cost possible.
In our ongoing effort to make your pet's health care as convenient and easy as possible, we have several options for refilling your pet's medication and prescription diets. All prescription refills require a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship and must be approved by a doctor.
- Calling ahead to request a refill for pick up one of our three locations. We generally request a call at least 48 hours prior to pick up to allow time for our veterinarians to review your record and approve the refill and for our pharmacy technician to fill the medication. However, if you have a more constrained time frame - please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate this request.
- Calling ahead to request a refill shipped to your home: If you are unable to pick up a refill from our office we are also happy to mail it to you. We ship via USPS for a $3.25 shipping & handling fee.
