• Every month I get a heartworm (Interceptor) pill for my dog. Is it ok to get him a pack of 6 heartworm chewables from Chewy.com (it's cheaper) as long as I get the correct one for his weight? Thank you.

    Hi Madison,
    To order medication online it still requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is best to speak with your veterinarian first before ordering the medication online. Some websites are more reputable than others and we want to make sure your pet gets the correct medication. Discuss your concerns about the pricing with your veterinarian as well.
