    As a new customer, I'm thrilled with chewy!

    By Pegg on May 20, 2021

    My vet ordered these tablets in 1 g size, requiring that I cut them in half since the dosage was 1500 mg per day. They were like concrete blocks; it was impossible to split without causing crumbling and toxic dust. Discouraged, I checked chewy.com and found the same med in 500 mg tablets. Perfect! But now the problem was, how to disguise three tablets given three times a day? I tried peanut butter, Liverwurst, Cheese. Awkward and sometimes refused. Then a friend suggested your pill pockets. Wow!! They are flexible enough to completely disguise the tablet and they're irresistible for my dog.! What's more, the package arrived in three days! Now I am a forever fan of chewy and will be re-ordering My vet ordered these tablets in 1 g size, requiring that I cut them in half since the dosage was 1500 mg per day.

    Wear gloves

    By Lilly on Apr 7, 2021

    Lilly was very sick with staph infection. She has had 3 surgeries on her left leg since Nov 2018. After a successful Cancer removal/surgery on her leg, it was discovered almost a year later a staple was left in her leg. She had to have the surgery again to find it. After much resting, cleaning her leg she was fine Fall 2020. Post 3rd surgery all the medication and antibiotics this staph began to eat her skin around her ears and blood test showed her liver count is high from all her previous medications. This medication has healed her raw areas, the bleeding has stopped. This medication MUST be given every 8 hours, I use peanut butter and you must wear gloves when you handle this.

    Great pharmacy option!

    By Nicole on Jul 27, 2019

    Great option to get reliable meds online. About 60% cheaper than human pharmacy. Chewy representative was super helpful as this med comes in tablet instead of pill and there was a concern about dosage. Shipping was quick too. Very pleased and would use them again!

    Huge cost savings through Chewy.com!

    By Lightning on Sep 13, 2018 top50Contributor

    One of our dogs has had to take the antibiotic,chloramphenicol before and as he weighs 85 pounds that means 12 tablets a day for 14 days. Buying this antibiotic from our vet cost twice as much as it did from Chewy.com. The medication was delivered in 48 hours to our door. Thank you Chewy.com!
