Dear Valued Brookeville Animal Hospital Clients:
We wanted to take a moment to explain our new policy for filling prescriptions made with online pharmacies.
We understand the convenience of online shopping – all it takes is a couple of minutes and a few clicks of your mouse and you can order your pet’s medications for a discounted price from the comfort of your home and have them delivered straight to your door.
Once you place an order online we receive a request to approve this prescription. That’s where our involvement stops. The FDA has found that some online companies sell unapproved pet drugs, counterfeit pet products, make fraudulent claims, dispense prescription drugs without requiring a prescription, and sell expired or improperly stored drugs. We can’t validate the integrity of the medicine you are receiving from an online pharmacy.
If you would like to continue to purchase medications online we will provide a written prescription for your pet’s medication. You can pick it up at our office or for some medications we can mail the written prescription to your home. You can send this written prescription to the online pharmacy of your choice to have it filled.
