How do I write a prescription on Vetster? (United States)



Vetster is thrilled to announce the launch of VetsterRx, our integrated online pharmacy. If you determine a prescription is needed, you can prescribe directly within the Vetster platform, choosing from our list of nearly 1,000 medications. Purchased within the Vetster app and shipped directly to your client's home within 1-3 business days, it doesn’t get any easier! Feel free to browse available medications prior to your appointment by selecting "Add a prescription" in the prescription pad.


Human Pharmacy

This is the ideal situation for urgent medications. If your prescription can be filled through a human pharmacy, please confirm the contact information for the client’s pharmacy of choice during the appointment. Following the completion of your appointment, the most efficient route is to call (or email the prescription) for the client to pick up at their convenience.



Mix lab is very user-friendly option for prescribing a veterinary labelled drugs (or compounded medications) from any of these states: AL, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, DC, FL, GA, ME, MD, MI, MN, MS, NH, NE, NV, NJ, NY, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SD, TN, VT, VA, WA, WV, WI and WY. You can either phone in (fastest) the prescription or email. Mixlab will contact the pet owner directly and arrange for payment and delivery of the medication. Mixlab will arrange payment and discuss delivery timing with the client directly.

Mixlab phone number: +1 (888) 901-4480, Mixlab email: rx@mixlabrx.com


Other Internet Pharmacy (Chewy)

If you create a prescription and the owner wishes to use Chewy.com, the pet owner must create their own account and place the order for the prescription that you are recommending. Please instruct them to put Vetster (DE) as the clinic. The approval request will come to our Chewy Petscriptions Portal and we will approve it on your behalf.


Additional Prescribing Considerations

Please do not email the prescription pad PDF to the 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.

If you have any questions or concerns, please visit our help centre or contact support. We would be happy to help!
