    Great pharmacy option!

    By on

    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!

    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!
