We can only fill medications as prescribed by the VRCC veterinarian attending to the patient within our facility. We cannot fill any prescriptions from non-VRCC veterinarians or veterinary hospitals.
- We cannot check out clients for appointments or food. This needs to be done at the VRCC front desk.
- We cannot make appointments for VRCC departments; each department does their own scheduling. Please call the department directly to set-up an appointment.
- In order to be compliant with Federal regulations, VRCC will NOT ACCEPT any return prescriptions once they have left the building.
We always strive to offer our clients exemplary service and will answer any questions or concerns.
