Use Caution When Filling Veterinary Prescriptions at Human Pharmacies
Having your dogs prescriptions filled at a human pharmacy can save money, but dangerous, or even lethal, mistakes can be made if youre not paying attention.
A few years ago, I was at my vets office when an older couple brought in a Chihuahua puppy who was very ill. Despite the staffs best efforts, less than an hour later the pup was dead. The cause? A drug overdose, due to a prescription error made by a human pharmacy.
