Online retailer, Chewy, has expanded the veterinary offerings available on its Practice Hub platform. Through the expanded service, DVMs can now create compounded medications in six formulations (capsule, oral liquid, chewable, transdermal gel, paste, and powder) with a range of strengths and flavors.

The offering, Chewy says, aims to streamline prescription services and, by extension, increase clinic revenue and provide veterinarians with more time to spend with their patients.

“Practice Hub is uniquely positioned to help veterinarians respond to the increasing shift of pet parent spend towards online channels,” says the company’s vice president of healthcare, Jon Alexander.

Prescriptions are delivered to pet owners seven days a week from Chewy’s compounding pharmacy, which is accredited by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB).

To date, hundreds of clinics have signed up for Practice Hub, including independent veterinary practices, as well as large hospitals and nationwide veterinary groups, Chewy reports.
