How will you contact my vet?

Our Veterinary Diets team will personally contact your vet for approval. If your clinic needs more information from you or recommends a different diet, we’ll let you know immediately.

Does it help if I send you my veterinarian’s authorization?

Yes! If you have a paper copy of your vet’s authorization, email a picture to, start a chat, or fax it to 1-800-619-7973.

Can I use a veterinarian’s authorization if it was written by a veterinarian out of state?

Of course! We can accept valid authorizations from anywhere in the United States and Canada—that includes US territories, like Puerto Rico.

Veterinary Diets are formulated with the precise ingredients and nutrients needed to address specific medical issues. If you don’t have a paper authorization, no sweat—once you provide your vet’s information, our team will take over.

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

Yes, but we’ll need them to provide us with the full name of the pet’s owner’s name via phone, email or chat after the order is placed, so the clinic can locate your pet’s records when we contact them.

We recommend it, but it’s not required. You can create your pet’s profile by logging in at, hovering over your account, and choosing “pet profile.”

Yes. Your vet will tell us when your authorization will expire and how many times we can send before they’d like you to check back in with them.

Can I set up automatic refills?

Yep! Sign up for Autoship and we’ll automatically ship your Veterinary Diets for as long as your authorization allows. If you run out of refills, or your authorization expires, we’ll automatically contact your vet for a new authorization. If we hit any bumps in the road, we’ll let you know right away.

    Dog food by RX

    I was just looking for some low calorie, good tasting food for my 6 yrs old husky. Chewy contacted veterinarian directly and prescription got approved in no time. My dog loves the food and on her way of loosing some weight!

    Best presciption food for our dogs

    By on

    We've tried the big 3 prescription options for weight loss: Science Diet, Purina, and Royal Canin. Both dogs pooped an incredible amount and were always hungry on SD. Purina gave them horrific gas (first time ever) and extremely soft stools. RC seems to be just right: more filling and better output. We haven't seen real weight loss results yet but know it's a slow and steady process.

    Weight control

    By on

    I must say that Andy enjoyed his food from the start. I started slowly by mixing the new food with what he was eating before. He had no problem with it. It is not fair to rate it yet because I need to see if he loses weight. I rated this on the fact that he liked it and didn’t upset his tummy. One thing I have trouble with is that we cannot lift it and carry it. I am old and disabled.

    Love the new diet formula and so does Buddy.

    By on

    I was very happy when Buddy first tried the “diet” formula. He loved it right away. I was surprised that he enjoyed it with no hesitation. Thank you and your staff for all their help.

    Royal Canin Veterinary Diet

    By on

    Our Vet recommended this food for our Sheltie Gibbs. He loves it. Too soon to notice any weight loss. Don’t know if I like “chicken by-product meal” after doing a search, but our Vet thinks it’s good food.

    Not good.

    By on

    I was told that this replaced the Iams Veterinary Diet Weight Control. My dogs will not even eat this. I had to go and buy regular Iams and lower their portions. In hope that this will work for them. My dogs are very finicky and have a touchy stomach and it also took me several years to get the right dog food for them. Big expense, and now I have to throw it out. I am disappointed that Iams had to get rid of this product.

    Also went from Iams to this........

    By on

    My two dogs switched from Iams weight control to this product with no problem at all. They seem to like it at least as much as the Iams product.
