Starting July 1, 2018, we will no longer be able to fill long term prescriptions for certain medications here at Ashburn Village Animal Hospital.
This is due to a change in the state of Virginia Prescription Monitoring Program. This may affect your pet’s prescriptions if they take chronic medications for pain or cough.
Some of the medications included in this change are Tramadol, Tussigon, Gabapentin, and medications that contain Codeine.
Our doctors will need to write a prescription for these substances that you can fill for your pet at any local pharmacy. We will need your date of birth and address to include on the written prescription. Non-steroidal pain medication like Rimadyl, Deramaxx, Metacam and Galliprant are not affected by this new rule. We also offer Therapeutic Laser as an alternative treatment to manage your pet’s chronic pain.
Please feel free to contact us at 703-729-0700 if you have any questions!
