Pills are too big for a cat

This medication works well for my cat's IBD when purchased at a compounding pharmacy nearby that puts it in a small, round pill form designed for pets. But Chewy's pharmacy put the medication in an oblong capsule, which my cat finds too big and awkward to swallow. It gets stuck on the very back of his tongue and then he just spits it out. It's not like he enjoys the round pill, but it was never a logistical nightmare to get him to swallow it. The oblong one was and I gave up after a few days.

I'm not sure about this drug

Unfortunately if you dog is on this medication things are not good. I think it's working. The vomiting has stopped, but his appetite isn't always great. It is better than pred. He doesn't drink massive amounts of water and does not urinate more than normal. And it is a targeted drug in that it is only working on the GI tact and not the whole body. Those are the positives. Another positive is that Chewy is selling it for way less that the local pharmacies. I just wish he didn't need it at all, but it will be a life long medication for him.

Fast service

Our veterinarian prescribed this for our dog. I was able to find the best price at Chewy and got it within a few days.

Great price

For the same medication, an animal pharmacy was going to charge 5x the price.

Great product

I've been using this product for my cat with IBD for almost a year. He previously was on prednisolone but had some issues with long term side effects. This has been a great product that controls his symptoms. Highly recommend.

Highly recommended

My 13 1/2 year old cat was diagnosed with IBD and an allergy to fish at the same time. She was started on Prednisone and diet change to chicken or beef. At first the Prednisone was doing its job, but over time I worried about the side effects. Then I heard about how Budesonide is better without all the bad side effects that Prednisone has. It has been about 4 1/2 months since the diet change and taking Budesonide. She is a changed kitty! She has gained about 2 1/2 pounds and now weighs about 7 pounds. She looks and feels better. Before she used to just sit sternally almost guarding her stomach. Now she runs and plays and has energy through the roof. This new medication is a life changer for my kitty cat. Thanks Chewy for offering this medicine in capsule form. It makes it so easy to pill her!

Great Stuff!

This medication has made a world of difference for my Bassett Hound! My only concern is that the price doubled from the original prescription to the refill.

Pharmacy is excellent

I am delighted with the service from Chewy Pharmacy in preparing my cat’s compounded IBD medication. It’s difficult to find a local compounding pharmacy, but Chewy was not only able to prepare the medication quickly but also delivered it to me quickly.

Huge savings

I'm so grateful that Chewy now can make a compounded version of Budesonide. I've been getting this locally at more than double the cost, and with a dog that takes a few medications, this really adds up.

Fast and Efficent

We were really pleased with how fast and efficient the prescription service with Chewy has been. We sought to compare prices with our local compound pharmacy and found Chewy prices could not be beat.
