It is recommended to follow at least a 7-day transition plan before exclusively feeding your pet a new food. Start by mixing 75% of your pet's current diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the current diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

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.

    Anything to Help Squash's Breath

    By 2PittiesMommy on Jul 29, 2021

    We just started using this product in an effort to stave off problems with the puppers' teeth. Squash's breath was BAD so the vet recommended adding the DH Formula Dry Food to their regular kibbles. They love the taste (we even use pieces as treats now and then). Too soon to tell if there is improvement but they do seem to love it! Wish it didn't require a prescription but that can't be helped.

    Great for dogs who actually chew their food!

    By Boom on Aug 31, 2016

    My big dog loves the taste. My vet told me I just had to put in 1/3 of the total amount of this DH food. At first, my dog chewed these nuggets as this is how the food cleans his teeth. After a few days, my dog started swallowing the nuggests whole, so no chewing happened. Then I used the new nuggets as treats, which for the first few days he chewed, but now he is swallowing them whole whether I toss them or drop them on the floor. If your dog is a gulper and not a chewer, this food might not be effective.
