Our Commitment to You
As healthcare professionals who share your commitment to offering the highest quality care for animals, we look forward to working with you to provide your clients with superior prescription products.

Our team of licensed pharmacists and on-staff veterinarians are committed to offering you and your clients exceptional service, and we will do everything we can to earn your trust as a reliable, knowledgeable resource for the highest quality prescription products and information available in the industry.

Because we believe the veterinarian-client-patient relationship is essential for determining the need for, and specifics of, prescription medications, we will only fill prescriptions from veterinarians who have personally examined the pet or horse within the last year.

If you ever have any questions regarding our pharmacy, policies, or specific prescription products, we encourage you to contact us.

Thank you.
