Our Pharmacy

We maintain a full veterinary pharmacy. For rarely utilized pharmaceuticals, we can usually place special orders for next-day receipt, at no extra cost. Or, for drugs that are also sold to people, we can call in prescriptions to human-based pharmacies, such as Vons, CVS, or Costco. Customers seeking a prescription to be filled at a non-human based veterinary pharmacy can either request to have the script mailed, faxed, or emailed to them.

Prescription Foods

While we keep on-hand the nearly full range of Hill’s prescription diets, we also carry some diets from Purina, Iams, and Royal Canin.

Flea, Tick, Heartworm Treatments and Preventatives

Because of the constant threat of fleas, ticks, and heartworms in our area, we carry the following preventives:

  • Frontline Plus
  • Seresto Collar
  • Nexgard
  • Comfortis (cats)
  • Heartgard Plus
  • Trifexis
  • Sentinel

Please consult with the doctor to determine which preventives are most appropriate for your pet.
