In addition to expanding its pharmaceutical service for pet owners, the company intends to expand the new offering to veterinarians.

In its efforts to serve as a go-to resource for both pet owners and veterinarians, Chewy has announced that it is now offering compounded medications for pet owners.

“Building off our relationship with both pet parents and veterinarians, Chewy is uniquely positioned to make pet health care more accessible and affordable for every American household,” said Mita Malhotra, vice president of healthcare at Chewy, in a press release. “By making these types of medications more widely available, we want to better serve pet parents who need a customized solution in an otherwise limited marketplace."

According to the release, Chewy Pharmacy’s compounding ingredients are sourced from FDA-registered manufacturers and distributors, and all customized medications are prepared by licensed compounding pharmacists, to the specifications requested by the veterinarian. Customers can order compounded medications online from Chewy in the same way they do their other medications.

The company also announced plans to expand its compounding service to veterinarians. Late last month, the company launched “Connect With a Vet,” a free pet telehealth service for its auto-ship customers.
