At the Animal Hospital of Melissa, we have a complete in house pharmacy. We carry a variety of medications to treat diseases as well as many of the heartworm and flea preventatives. When your pet requires a medication that we do not stock, we will use a local pharmacy or compounding pharmacy to have special medications prepared for you to pick up or delivered to your house.
In recent years there have been numerous new heartworm and flea preventatives come available. This has made it possible for pet owners to use a product that works best for them to prevent heartworm and flea/tick problems. We may not always have the brand of preventative that you prefer. Therefore, we have partnered with one of our distributors to provide online prescriptions requests. A link on our home page will direct you to MyVetDirect.Com which is an online source for many of the common drugs, preventatives, shampoos, and supplements that our clients use. With rising costs all around, we understand that the prices of many of the preventatives used by our clients may limit owner compliance. Prices on MyVetDirect.Com are set to match the low prices that are found on many similar online pharmacies. While price is always important, quality of product is very important. All of the preventatives on MyVetDirect.Com come straight from the manufacturer (not from third parties), have normal expiration dating, and include the backing or warranty that these manufacturers give to the same products in our pharmacy.
