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.

    Healthy Dog Food

    By on

    If you were to look in your bank account, could you find $50-$100 worth of unnecessary spending? A lot of people think they can't "afford" healthy prescription dog food for their pet(s), but you can. We love Royal Canin. We change up from this weight formula to their other formulas because our princess gets likes variety. She is healthy, coat shines and when she lost 10lbs. Now she just maintains. Love this and love my pet!

    dog loves it!!

    I bought a bag for my 100lb doberman. He didn’t even let me open the bag he wanted it so bad. Within a few minutes he ate his whole bowl. My smaller pit also wanted some so I gave her a handful, well safe to say she doesn’t want her old food anymore. I would highly recommend!

    Broken bag

    By on

    I have been a frequent flier with Chewy for quite some time with auto delivery for 5 dogs. I just switched food to the weight control. My first big bag of the new product came torn open. I am hesitant to feed it. We just opened the box, so just noticed it. Bummer. I think this is only the second time we have every had an issue in all of the twice a month orders (or so) that we have had.

    English Lab

    By on

    Our 6 year old English Lab had been on a grain free diet. Within 1 year, he gained 15 pounds. Our vet recommended this weight control food. After 1 month, he has lost 7 pounds and doesn't seem as hungry.

    To be Determined

    By on

    My Lab has been on this diet for approximately 2 weeks not counting the transitional period of a week. She didn't have any trouble changing over to this diet and really likes the food so that's a good thing. But it's too early to tell if this diet is working. We've cut out all table scrapes and increased her exercise, hoping that this will help her loose weight quicker. She is 2 years old and weighs 90 pounds. Chewy contacted my vet to get a prescription for this food since that is required. I received my order the following day!! WOW, really quick delivery, I'm impressed. Sure hope that this diet works since we tried other dog foods that were for weight management but they didn't do the My Lab has been on this diet for approximately 2 weeks not counting the transitional period of a week.
