FAQ

Why should I buy veterinary diets from Chewy?

We offer competitive prices and free shipping on orders over $49. Plus, you'll save more if you sign up for automatic refills with Autoship at Checkout. Chewy experts are available 24/7 to answer any questions you have.

How do I order veterinary diets?

  1. Search for the diet your veterinarian recommends and add it to your cart. You can purchase your veterinary diets along with any other items you need.
  2. At Checkout, you'll be asked for your pet's name and veterinary clinic information so we can confirm that the item is authorized by your veterinarian.
  3. Place your order and we'll take care of contacting your veterinarian. If you have a copy of your authorization, you can expedite the process by uploading a scan or photo of it to the Prescriptions section in your account or your order confirmation. You can also email it to vetdiet@chewy.com.

If your clinic needs more information from you or recommends a different diet, we'll let you know immediately.

I have a copy of the authorization from my veterinarian. Can I send it to you?

Yes. If you have a paper copy of your veterinarian's authorization, you can upload a scan or photo to the Prescriptions section in your account or your order confirmation. You can also email it to vetdiet@chewy.com.

Can I use a veterinarian's authorization if it was written by a veterinarian out of state? Yes. We accept valid authorizations from anywhere in the United States, Canada, and U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico.

Why do I need a veterinarian's authorization?

Veterinary diets are formulated with the precise ingredients and nutrients needed to address specific medical issues. Because these diets are formulated for medical issues, veterinary authorization is needed to advise you on the best way to give them to your pet and to monitor your pet's health while they are on the diet.

Can someone else (such as a caretaker or family member) place an order for my pet?

Yes, but we'll need them to contact us and provide the full name of the pet's owner after the order is placed. This is so the veterinary clinic can locate your pet's records when we contact them. Email us at vetdiet@chewy.com or call us 24/7 at 1-800-672-4399.

Do authorizations expire?

About BLUE Buffalo

Blue Buffalo began with unconditional love and some furry inspiration from a large breed Airedale, Blue. When Blue's family started a pet food company, their vision was clear. They wanted every pet parent to be able to feed their pet with the same care they would feed family. So they created the #1 natural pet specialty food to help furry family members live happy, healthy lives. Of course, they named it after Blue.

    To many peas. Caused gas.

    By Dude on Mar 23, 2021

    The food sounded promissing. Blue calls is natural and easy to digest, as well as grain freee, however it is jammed full of peas and potatoes. It caused my dog to have a ton of gas which peas can do. I just don't understand why these pet food companies can't make decent food that isn't full of things like peas.

    Pancreatitis maltipoo

    By amazonian on Jun 13, 2020

    My 10-lb maltipoo had two bouts of pancreatitis so vet recommended canned Hills Rx Gastro Low Fat. I feed him a mix of this Blue Buffalo kibble with the Hills and so far so good, now 1 month. I didn’t feel comfortable feeding him only the canned Hills because nutritionally it’s not as dense and has pork byproducts and organ meats, but he does do well on it. So I’m more comfortable giving him this with it since BB is natural. He doesn’t LOVE this kibble like his old one but he’ll eat it. Much higher protein content in this than Hills so I am careful. Took off 1 star cuz he occasionally won’t eat it/gets tired of it and I have to do Hills-only or BB-only meals to get him to eat it.

    good for intestine but...

    By erictton on Aug 1, 2020

    my maltipoo didn't like the taste, the kibbles are on the hard side so she has try bite hard on them, other than that the food did help my dog with pancreatitis and gastrointestinal problem, trying another food that is hopefully a little softer

    Rx Diets should NOT have those “life source bits”

    By MyHomeBoundHound on Mar 26, 2020

    I bought this recently for my MinPin who must be on a low fat GI diet. She ate it without a problem but I am not comfortable with those rock hard bits that are added. I take the time to remove them and I probably won’t buy it again. That’s too bad because then I need to go with Royal Canin or Purina. I’m not a fan of Royal Canin because of the disingenuous “breed specific” diets they pawn on gullible people. For BB to be a serious provider of much needed Rx Diets they need to loose the bits!
