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 vetdiet@chewy.com, 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.

Do I need to set up a pet profile?

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

Do authorizations expire?

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?

    Perfect, weight coming off

    By on

    My little adopted Chi-Min was food deprived in her past life. Started gaining weight. Between snacks and stealing the kitten's food, she was looking pudgy. Solved the kitten food stealing and put her on this. Neighbor commented how good she looks now. Weight is starting to get back to what it should be without sacraficing good nuitrition.

    Excellent for small dogs with a weight problem

    By on

    Our 12 pound chihuahua mix loves this food. We've tried many others with her, but she never liked the taste or felt satiated. She has another medical problem that we have to monitor hence the prescription food. It's a little pricey, but worth it. I only wish the small breed formula came in a larger sized bag.
