Pick-Up a Written Prescription at Barnside
It's still your pet and your pet's medication. You are welcome to pick-up a written prescription to take or mail wherever you choose.
Due to concerns about product stability and changes to your pet's needs, we generally will not write a prescription for more than 6-month's worth of medication at a time.
As of 2017, we no longer approve faxed or telephone prescriptions from outside pharmacies.
ONLINE PHARMACIES ARE COMPROMISING THE SAFETY OF YOUR PET
These are medical, veterinary products and should not be purchased through some "warehouse."
Pharmaceutical manufacturers will only guarantee their products if they are purchased through a veterinary hospital.
Unfortunately, we have seen a significant increase in errors (wrong product, wrong dose, wrong directions) from many online and even local pharmacies. There has also been an increase in communication difficulties with trying to prevent or correct these mistakes.
Online resellers often obtain these products illegally through "gray markets" and foreign countries.
Ex) From pg 6 of 1800PetMeds Annual Report:
"We currently purchase a portion of our prescription and non-prescription medications from third party distributors and we are not an authorized distributer of these products. We do not have any guaranteed supply of medications at any pre-established prices."
