Our in-house pharmacy is well stocked and contains supplies that allow us to properly immunize and treat your pet. Using our extensive knowledge, we will ensure your pets are properly dosed and monitored during their therapy. Our inventory includes everything from heartworm preventatives, flea and tick control, and pain medication to a plethora of drugs used to treat the disease that affects our pets.
Having your veterinarian play an integral part in your pet’s medical treatment ensures your pet receives the best treatment. There are many drug interactions that occur in pets that do not routinely occur in people. Your local pharmacist may be unaware of these issues. A classic example is non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. Many of these over-the-counter pain relievers are safe in humans, but can cause stomach ulcers (as high as 40%) and result in life-threatening conditions if used in dogs or cats.
Our staff is trained to screen for potential problems when you come in to refill medications. Using our in-house pharmacy can prevent a trip to the emergency room. In addition, we work hard to provide our patients with cost-effective, safe medications. We are often less expensive than online retailers and can give you well-informed advice on what is safe and effective for your pet.

Our trained staff knows what to look for when screening for potential problems when they ask you questions when refilling your medications. This valuable service is often overlooked by pet owners and can prevent a trip to the emergency room. In addition, because of the issue of online counterfeit drugs, you can be assured you are receiving the right drug with the full backing of the manufacturer. Order from the people you know and trust!
Medication Refill Requests
We require that you kindly give us at least 24-hour notice for all prescription refills and written prescription requests as well as food.
All filled and written prescriptions are required to be picked up at Ancare Veterinary Hospital LaSalle or Mendota. We do not submit written prescriptions to outside and online pharmacies. The pet owner is required to pick up a hard copy of the written prescription to submit to the outside or online pharmacy. This eliminates any confusion or mix up with outside pharmacies.
Thank you for your cooperation!
