Pharmacy

Most prescriptions for pet medications, supplements, and diets can be conveniently filled here at Riverbend. We can also mail pre-paid prescriptions to your home. We do, however, request 24-hour notice for filling prescriptions. Those that we cannot fill here may be written to regular, online, or veterinary compounding pharmacies.

We will provide prescriptions for on-line pharmacies, but we urge you to use only those facilities certified by safe.pharmacy. The .pharmacy seal should be prominently placed on the website’s home page. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy runs the safe.pharmacy program. Most of the major online pharmacies are members. It is difficult, if not impossible, to evaluate the safety of products dispensed by companies that do not participate, and we strongly caution against using them.

Prescriptions and products from Riverbend’s pharmacy come directly from the manufacturers and are stored properly in a cool, dry place. Expiration dates are carefully monitored before sale to our clients.

“Dr. Thomson is the Dustin Pedroia of veterinary medicine — determined, committed, talented, the ultimate teammate in what has been a very long season. Thank you for all you have done to help Tilly (and us) along this long and bumpy journey.”

“Barney could not have had better care or felt more love than he did with his visits to see his friends at Riverbend. He always got the royal treatment!”

“Thank you all so much for allowing us to have our second Christmas with our little fat head, Pickles. You guys are just amazing.”

“Thank you for your expertise, professionalism and counseling but mostly for the care and attention that all of the receptionists, techs and docs showed all of us at every visit.”

Jonie and Brad, Easthampton

“You are blessed with a wonderful gift, Dr. Thomson, not only in your expertise as a surgeon but in the way you interact with people.”
