Prescription Refills

Bristol County Veterinary Hospital has a complete in-house veterinary pharmacy with medications and prescription animal products for your pet’s health and needs.  As a client at Bristol County Veterinary Hospital, you have the convenience of requesting your pet(s)’ medications online via the form below.  This is valid for current clients whose pet(s) has a prescription on file with our hospital.  

 

Refill Requirements: A current Wellness exam performed by one of our veterinarians (within 6-12 months) is required before a refill can be legally authorized. Also, there are certain medications such as non-steriodal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), thyroid, or seizure drugs where blood work or other lab testing may be required every 6-12 monthes prior to authorizing your pet’s refill. Please contact our hospital and speak to one of our Veterinary Technicians for more information.

Commonly Asked Questions Regarding Prescription Refills

Does my pet need an exam for a new medication or refill?
For pre-prescribed medications, as long as one of our veterinarians have examined your pet within the last 6-12 months (certain medications warrant semi-annual wellness exams), another exam may not be necessary. A refill of your pet’s medication cannot be legally authorized without a current Wellness examination. If your pet has a new problem or we are concerned about which medication is most appropriate, we may ask to see your pet for an examination.

For new prescriptions, a Wellness examination is required before a new prescription can be legally authorized.  Not only is an exam required by Federal and State laws but also it is our medical obligation to assure your pet’s health and safety in that it gets the appropriate medication and dosage.

Are there dangers if I order drugs for my pet online or buy them at a non-veterinary retail store?  I see pet drugs being sold everywhere, even at my local pharmacy.

While many online drug retailers adhere to professional standards, you cannot be sure that the drugs you receive are made in America.  The U.S. Food & Drug Administration does not approve importing medications from outside the United States but you cannot be sure of the country of origin from online or local retailers who are trying to keep their costs as low as possible.  It is also hard to verify that medications are the correct dosage and have not expired.

It’s important for our veterinarians to be aware of all the medications your pet is taking to ensure that the drugs will not interact and cause harmful side effects.

Also, not all heartworm and flea prevention medication contain all the necessary ingredients to protect your pet even though the drug packaging may look the same online.  If your pet becomes infected with heartworm disease even though you were giving it medication from an online store, the manufacture companies of those preventatives cannot guarantee the authenticity of that product you purchased.

If you would like to purchase your pet’s prescriptions online, the safest way to do so is through pharmacies accredited by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy by the Vet-VIPPS program. Choosing to buy your prescriptions from a trustworthy provider can help eliminate the risks mentioned above that are associated with sites that fail to comply with federal and state laws and regulations.

I have just moved my pug and other family members. Millie needed her nails clipped. She gets very stressed out during this routine procedure. The old vet had three people restraining her and they always drew blood. At Bristol the staff became concerned and they held her for few hours while carefully clipping her nails and ensuring her well being. In a follow up visit she seemed happy to be there.

I have been going to Bristol County for almost eleven years. Dr. Ripp and Dr. Richards and the entire team have always been caring, professional, and provide exceptional care to our dogs. I always appreciate the quick return phone calls if I have asked a question and the personal care of speaking to either Dr. Ripp or Dr. Richards when bloodwork comes back (even on a Saturday!). Maddie & Jeter are not afraid of the vet because of the wonderful care and love they receive from everyone here. I wouldn’t take my dogs anyplace else!


I have used this vet as far back as I can remember. The staff is extremely kind. They know their job inside and out! I highly recommend anyone seeking a vet should call and try them out for yourself. GREAT!


Everyone who works at Bristol County is so nice. You can tell they hire people who enjoy and love animals. I always appreciate the care that both my dogs receive from the vets at Bristol County. Dr. Ripp and Dr. Richards and their assistants are wonderful. I always feel they listen to me and provide excellent feedback. Thank you to the entire staff at Bristol County!


Great care for your pets from a caring staff and top notch management! Any issues taken to management are taken seriously and quickly resolved, all in addition to skilled doctors and techs.


Dr. Richards puts my furry friend at ease. She understands Sunshine and works with her temperament instead of resorting to restraining her in a towel. It makes the visit much less stressful for both of us!


One can find only the highest level of care and professionalism at BCVH!


All of the folks at this facility have and continue to provide the best care for our much loved feline family members. I never feel rushed when I bring Katie in for her visit. Treatment plans are explained thoroughly as well as the costs. I ALWAYS feel that WE have made the best choice for our pet.


Always a pleasant experience even when my cat is costing me money. That speaks volumes about the care they provide for our furry little family member.
