Client Pharmacy Services

Information for Clients

The Purdue University Veterinary Pharmacy fills medication orders for patients of the Purdue Unviersity Small Animal Hospital and the Purdue University Large Animal Hospital during their hospital visit. The Purdue Veterinary Pharmacy also fills prescriptions that are to be sent home with patients after their hospital visit as well as for patients that are seen by the Small Animal Primary Care and Bovine, Equine, and Swine Field Services. Refills can be requested by phone; it is best if we are given 24 hours notice. Prescriptions can be shipped via FedEx or UPS. Compounded prescriptions (customized) can be filled by the Purdue Veterinary Pharmacy upon request of the Purdue University Veterinary Hospital veterinarian.

The Purdue Veterinary Pharmacy can only fill prescriptions written by Purdue staff veterinarians. Refills for prescriptions of “human medicine used in veterinary cases” can be transferred to a local pharmacy if it is more convenient for the client. The client should give their local pharmacy our contact information and the prescription number and ask the local pharmacy to call for the transfer information.

Questions or information regarding medication(s) dispensed to a patient can be obtained by contacting the Hospital Pharmacy or the Hospital veterinarian.
