Prescriptions and Prescription Diets
WellPet Humane has its own full-service, in-house pharmacy where you can refill prescriptions for your pet, including medications or prescription diets, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products, or heartworm preventatives that our doctors prescribe. We refill authorized prescriptions 2 main ways:
You can pick up your prescription at the WellPet clinic during regular business hours. For clinic pick-ups please provide us with a minimum of 48 hours advanced notice on your prescription refills so that we can have your pet medications ready when you arrive to pick them up.
All patients must have a current annual doctor’s exam on file in order to receive any prescriptions and that all heartworm preventatives require a current annual heartworm test on file.
Please note: WellPet only prescribes medications for pets that we examine and we can only refill prescriptions that we write.
The term ‘Therapeutic or Prescription Diets’ refers to any food that is available only by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian and that aids in the recovery from a disease or disorder or assists in delaying the progression of disease.
No matter who the manufacturer is, therapeutic diets are available only at animal hospitals or selected outlets that are staffed by veterinarians. You won’t see therapeutic diets in grocery stores, pet shops or feed stores.
We will provide guidance regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance. Our prescription diet prices are the best in Metro Atlanta.
