If your pet has been prescribed a medication that Animal Emergency Center either doesn’t carry, or is only able to supply you with a limited quantity, we will provide you with a written prescription that can be filled elsewhere.
Controlled Substances: Due to both new and existing regulations Animal Emergency Center can only dispense a three day supply of any controlled substance. If your pet requires more than a three day supply, AEC will give you a prescription to have filled elsewhere. Examples of controlled substances are: Buprenorphine, Tramadol, Gabapentin, Phenobarbital, and Hydrocodone.
Cost: Due to variances with different medications, strength and changing supplier costs, AEC is unable to provide estimated costs for any medications that will be filled elsewhere.
WARNING: Some commercially prepared liquid medications contain the artificial sweetener Xylitol which is extremely toxic to animals. Please inquire if Xylitol is an ingredient in any liquid medication prior to ordering,purchasing, or administering to your pet.
- Your Regular Veterinarian: often carries many commonly utilized medications and might be able to fill a prescription for you (and may also offer refills if necessary).
- Local pharmacies: carry many of the medications that your pet may require. Simply take the prescription to your usual pharmacy and have it filled there.
- Compounding pharmacies: can make medications in flavors that your pet may find more palatable. Compounding pharmacies can also ship medications, but it can take 3-5 days to receive.
