    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!

    Same meds, better price

    By Jamie on Oct 13, 2020

    Chewy’s Zycortal saved me $80 compared to what I was paying for it at my vet. Even after I ordered it my vet tried to call me and say they could offer a lower price, which they couldn’t, and said that they couldn’t guarantee the meds from Chewy. The Zycortal shipped fast and I have had no problems with it. Thanks Chewy!
