Home > Ordering Prescriptions

At California Pet Pharmacy, we want to be the provider for all your pet's prescription and OTC medication needs.

Our goal is to make ordering prescription items as simple as possible. Please place your order before having your vet call us for an authorization.

  • Provide us with Your Vet's Information:

    Please provide the vet's name, number & your pet's name on the 2nd page of the shopping cart. Once the veterinarian approves the prescription, we will ship the order within 24-72 hours.

  • Ordering for Multiple Pets:

    Individual prescription products should be placed in the shopping cart when ordering for multiple pets. We cannot ship a 12 month supply of Interceptor Heartworm medication for 2 dogs. We will change the order to two 6 month supplies to comply will pharmacy dispensing laws.

  • Let Your Vet know about Us:

    Please let your vet's office know that California Pet Pharmacy will be contacting them regarding prescriptions. This usually will alleviate any concerns or questions your vet's office may have and in turn, will speed up the prescription authorization process.


We are only allowed to accept faxes sent over from your vet's office. If you have written RX scripts, you will need to mail the original hard-copy to our address.

Please do not alter anything on original written prescriptions from vet clinics. All mail-in prescriptions are carefully reviewed, and veterinarians of clients whose prescriptions appear to be tampered with will be contacted for verification.

Verbal/telephone authorizations should not take more the 72 business hours to resolve. However, due to circumstances out of our control, this process may take a longer time. We will be updating the status of your order via email.

American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recommendations/guidelines to practicing veterinarians:

Veterinarians should honor client requests to prescribe rather than dispense a drug (AVMA Principles of Veterinary Medical Ethics). The client has the option of filling a prescription at any pharmacy.
