Transition Instructions

Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. 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.

FAQ

Why should I buy veterinary diets from Chewy?

We offer competitive prices and free shipping on orders over $49. Plus, you'll save more if you sign up for automatic refills with Autoship at Checkout. Chewy experts are available 24/7 to answer any questions you have.

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.

Do authorizations expire?

Yes. Your veterinarian will tell us when your authorization expires and how many refills you have before they'd like you to check back in with them.

Can I set up automatic refills? Yes. Sign up for Autoship at Checkout and select how often you need refills. 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 veterinarian for a new authorization.

What if I have more questions? How can I reach the veterinary diets team at Chewy?

Email us at vetdiet@chewy.com, start a chat on Chewy.com, or call us anytime at 1-800-672-4399. We're here for you 24/7.

    Great choice

    By ChihuahuaMom on Apr 2, 2021

    I am happy to say that our 4 dogs like this. I was a bit concerned when a longtime dog food was no longer available. A weight control dog food for our dogs is very important.

    Diet Dog Food that my dog loves

    By MissLo on Jan 19, 2021

    Our vet told us that Mabel was 4 lbs overweight! for a 24 lb dog... that is a LOT! We've been on this food now for a week and Mabel has already lost 0.2 lbs. She absolutely loves eating it. And her sister, who doesn't have to be on a diet prefers it to her standard Merrick dog food. This has by far been the easier dog food transition we've ever had!

    By Jean on Jan 11, 2021

    Thank you for your fast service. Our dog can only eat certain dog foods and we couldn't get Royal canine any other place. So glad you came through for us.

    Royal Weight Contro

    By Janice on Aug 12, 2020

    The vet said I had to put my 4 dogs on weight loss food. I was worried because in the past they wouldn’t eat it. Well, all 4 of my dogs love it. I mixed it half and half with the old food and the little ones will pick it out. The one bigger dog that wouldn’t eat the other weight loss food has no trouble eating this!

    Best presciption food for our dogs

    By Nicky on Dec 2, 2019

    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 Ginny on May 8, 2019

    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.
