    Essential but price increase :/

    By Jessi on Nov 12, 2021

    This product is essential for my dog to survive! I prefer Percorten, but it has been out of stock and is out of stock everywhere else. This still gets the job done; however, the price shot WAY up (hence the 4 stars)! I'm not sure if there is a shortage or something, but I'm hoping it goes back down or doesn't continue to increase!

    Great service!

    By Sandra on Oct 29, 2021

    Wonderful service, from finding an alternative brand of the same medication after my dog’s regular brand was out of stock, to helping me get her new prescription to them, and then quick delivery.

    Great but price is increasing

    By Chance on Jul 3, 2021

    This is something my dog needs the rest of his life and it has done wonders for him. Unfortunately the cost with Chewy is more than other companies now so I will have to order elsewhere :(

    Great Customer Service

    By Zycortal on Feb 4, 2021

    This medication is essential for my pup and Chewy currently has the best price! I'm very pleased with the excellent customer service Chewy provided me in getting this medication into my hands ASAP! Autumn, one of the pharmacy managers, was very understanding, friendly, and compassionate. She also helped speed the delivery process along as well. I truly appreciate Chewy's wonderful assistance! THANK YOU!!!

    Addison’s disease

    By Zycortal on Dec 21, 2020

    This medication has saved my dogs life. Our vet actually recommended this from chewy and for us to administer it ourselves and we save about $150 monthly by doing this. So happy and fortunate we are able to have this. Thank you chewy!
