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 Vet-VIPPS (Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Pratice Sites). The oval “VIPPS” seal should be prominently placed on the website’s home page. Vet-VIPPS is a voluntary certification program that seeks to ensure the safety of medications dispensed to pets. 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.

“You were understanding of my fear and high level of anxiety throughout the process. I never felt rushed or dismissed at any question I had. Please know the wonderful impact you have in the world.”

Lisa, Wilbraham

“Okay, alright, we admit it — we all like coming to Riverbend, not just the pets.”

“Over and over again you have been available to us when our furry family members have had serious problems. It is always easier dealing with those tough times because of your love, caring, and compassionate ways.”

“Thanks so much for taking such great care of Bearcat when he had his teeth out. He is now back to his high-jumping sweet self.”
