There are a few ways to get a prescription filled after an appointment on Vetster. Here is a summary of what we are finding to be the most effective routes at this time.
VetsterRx Online Pharmacy:
VetsterRx is our integrated online pharmacy available for clients and partners in the US, fulfilled by PetMeds. If you determine a prescription is needed, you can prescribe directly within the Vetster platform, choosing from our list of nearly 1,000 medications and a selection of therapeutic diet foods. Orders can be placed within the Vetster app and shipped directly to your client's home. Feel free to browse the available medications prior to your appointment by selecting 'Add a prescription' in the prescription pad.
This is the ideal situation for urgent medications. If your prescription can be filled through a human pharmacy, please confirm the contact information for your client’s pharmacy of choice during the appointment. Following the completion of your appointment, the most efficient route is to call in (or email/fax the prescription) for your client to pick up at their convenience.
Additional Prescribing Considerations:
Please do not email the prescription pad PDF to your client. It contains your personal contact information and a downloaded prescription cannot be filled by a pharmacist if presented by a client.
Your contact information will be provided to the pharmacist via the prescription. You may be contacted by the pharmacist if any follow-up is required.
