We are proud to offer both in-hospital and online pharmacy options.
At Mount Laurel Animal Hospital, our commitment to your pet's health is also reflected by our fully stocked in-house veterinary pharmacy. When it comes to prescription medications, accurate dosage and administration is of the utmost importance. You can be rest assured that any prescriptions your pet needs will be fulfilled accurately, at the right dose.
We will also provide you with detailed instructions on the medication’s use, discuss any side effects or interactions, and even give your pet the first dose if possible. You can feel confident all the medications we dispense were obtained from safe, reliable sources and stored under the right conditions.
Ensuring you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications and other pet care products is an important aspect of our veterinary practice.

Outside Pharmacy Protocol
Human pharmacy (CVS, Walmart, Costco, Walgreens, etc...) If you would like your pet's medication called into a human pharmacy, please provide your preferred pharmacy information, including the phone number. We will call the medication in directly, and then they will contact you to arrange pick up once the medication is ready. Please note this is only applicable when human generics are available.
We have increasing concerns about the ethical behavior and authenticity of products supplied by some online pharmacies. Vets First Choice is the ONLY trusted online pharmacy recommended by our veterinarians, and we consider it an extension of our hospital. We are committed to providing the best and safest medications for your pet, and for this reason, we do not recommend purchasing medications from any online pharmacy except Vets First Choice.
- After discussions with multiple veterinary pharmaceutical companies that manufacture several of these products, we have discovered that many of these companies limit the distribution of their products through licensed veterinarians, and so products obtained from many internet retailers are likely acquired illegally through non-approved channels.
- The manufacturer cannot guarantee safe handling, appropriate storage, and that the product has not been tampered with when they are not obtained through a licensed veterinarian. For this reason, the companies will not honor their warranties/guarantees if the products are not obtained through a licensed veterinarian. This means that reactions to the medications or failure of the medications (ie: preventatives) are not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
- Several clients have reported that they have received medications outside of their original packaging which leads us to question the authenticity of these medications.
- Pharmaceuticals manufactured for and labeled for use in other countries (namely Australia and Mexico) have been illegally diverted and sold through these discount houses in the United States.
- We have also noticed several mistakes made on the part of multiple online pharmacies.
If you would still like to obtain your refill through one of these discount pharmacies, please let one of our pharmacy techs know and we can provide you with a written script that you can then send into the online pharmacy. The script will be available at the hospital to pick up, or we can mail it to you at the mailing address you provide to us. Please allow up to 72 hours for us to process your request.
Compounding Pharmacies (Stokes, Wedgewood, etc): We work with many outside compounding pharmacies to prepare medications to meet the unique needs of an individual patient (especially for our exotics patients!) when a commercially available drug does not meet those needs. We call in the medications directly to the pharmacy, and they will contact you directly for payment and to set up shipment directly to your door!
