Important Shipping Update December 2020

“Carriers are experiencing delays due to the online holiday shopping surge paired with the public health challenge. We recommend ordering any medications your pet might need over the next month now.”

VetRxDirect is committed to providing high-quality pet medications. As a pharmacy, we understand the importance of your pet’s medications and we want to make sure that you get your order when your pet needs it. In that duty, we find it imperative to inform you that due to the recent holiday demand, delivery times are running longer than expected.

Our efforts have continued to help prevent service interruptions on our end. We are shipping orders very quickly. However, delivery services are experiencing delays that we cannot control. Regional delivery issues are occurring nationwide due to the current public health challenge and the increased online holiday shopping season. 

  • To receive items closer to your originally scheduled date, we recommend you place your order now on our website. If your pet needs a refill soon, please consider planning ahead and ordering earlier than normal to avoid any potential shipping delays over the next month. 

We’re Here for You and Your Pets

Please understand we are working steadfastly to respond to this situation. We will continue to closely monitor new developments and will respond swiftly when necessary, keeping you informed along the way. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this challenging time. 

What Can You Do?

Plan Ahead

We don’t want your pet to go without important medications or supplements. Perform an inventory of your pet’s medications and check their prescription labels for available refills. 

  • Order now if you are running low on their supply. If your pet is out of refills, allow extra time for your veterinarian to approve a new prescription.
  • Please take note of our regularly scheduled holiday hours and shipping schedule, especially if your pet relies on temperature-sensitive items. 

Order Early

Please make your orders earlier than normal, especially if you live in a region that is heavily impacted.

What You Can Expect

  • You’ll automatically receive a tracking link when your order ships from our pharmacy. Use this link to watch your order, all updates available from the carrier will be made here.

We Appreciate Your Patience and Loyalty

This holiday may be challenging for everyone, but our commitment to you is the same. Please allow some extra time for these carrier issues that are outside of our control. While delays may happen during these times, we’re doing everything we can to ensure your order arrives on time.

Alternatives to Greenies Pill Pockets Allergy Formula

Greenies, the makers of Pill Pockets, recently announced the discontinuation of Pill Pockets Allergy Formula aka Grain-Free Duck and Pea Formula. At this time, they have not made a formal announcement with plans to replace this product. This leaves many owners of pets with food allergies, intolerances, and special dietary requirements, are searching for the best replacement. We compared other pill pockets treats to find an appropriate substitution.

How Do You Compare to Pill Pockets Allergy?

Because Greenies Pill Pockets Allergy Formula was widely used for dogs and cats with food allergies, intolerances, and special diets, we first took a look first at the ingredient lists of multiple products that we carry at our pharmacy. We identified protein sources, carbohydrate sources, flavors, starch or thickeners, and animal by-product ingredients. Next, we took a look at the guaranteed analysis or nutrient profile, which lists the amount of protein, fat, fiber, and calorie content.

Tricky Treats™ by Pala-Tech™

Label to label, one of the most comparable product to Greenies Pill Pockets Allergy Formula is Tricky Treats Grilled Duck. And Tricky Treats Roasted Chicken is a very close tie. What makes them similar? To start, Tricky Treats contain duck as a novel protein, much like Pill Pockets. In both the Tricky Treats duck and chicken formulas, the animal proteins have been hydrolyzed, or broken down, into very small particle sizes, 3,500 Daltons to be exact. Hydrolysis is a process that uses water to chemically break proteins into pieces that are so small that the immune system no longer reacts to them. This process is also used in common therapeutic pet foods such as Blue Buffalo Natural Veterinary HF Hydrolyzed Food for dogs and cats, Hills Prescription Diets z/d, Royal Canin Veterinary Diets PS or HA, and Purina ProPlan HP Veterinary Diets.

Also, Tricky Treats do not contain corn, wheat, or soy in either formula; and like Pill Pockets Allergy, they contain a natural smoke flavor.

What Makes Tricky Treats Unique?

Tricky Treats not only have allergy conscious ingredients but also function well as a pill hiding agent. Pala-Tech states the “proprietary blend of natural ingredients provides an excellent mouth-feel, texture and aroma providing a healthy, tasty, and easy to swallow treat. This prevents the pet from biting into the bitter-tasting medication and spitting it out.” Also, Tricky Treats are wrapped in pairs to keep them fresh and prevent them from drying out.

  • Grilled duck formula contains a novel protein
  • Hydrolyzed duck and chicken proteins
  • Natural smoke flavor

Wonderbars by Animal Pharmaceuticals

Another equal comparison to Pill Pockets Allergy Formula is Wonderbars by Animal Pharmaceuticals. What makes them wonderful?  First off, Wonderbars do not contain animal proteins or any animal-based ingredients. They also contain synthetic cheese and bacon flavors and contain rice and tapioca starch as the carbohydrate sources. Also, Wonderbars do not contain corn, wheat, gluten, or soy. These allergy conscious treats are also suitable for pets with dietary restrictions, because of their zero-sodium and low calorie content.

What Makes Wonderbars Wonderfully Unique?

Yummy Combs Dental Flossing Treats for Dogs

What Are Yummy Combs?

Yummy Combs are unique, honeycomb-shaped dental chews specifically designed to floss your dogs’ teeth and gum line. Yummy Combs have deep, honeycomb pockets that completely surround the teeth and reach down to the gum line. The unique honeycomb design allows for a 6-way flossing action, essentially flossing from any angle. Because the Yummy Comb treat completely surrounds your dog’s teeth, it gives a deeper, more complete clean.

  • The width of the Yummy Comb prevents dogs from gulping it down in one bite and encourages them to chew longer.
  • The hard texture helps scrape and clean your dog’s teeth.
  • The thin-walled shape makes them very soluble and speeds digestion.

What are the Ingredients in a Yummy Comb?

They contain 12 wellness ingredients including essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, honey, salmon oil, lecithin, chondroitin, glucosamine, and turmeric. While both delicious and nutritious, the manufacturer also claims they are a complete and balanced treat. They do not contain artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, lactose, grains, GMOs or gluten. For the full ingredient list visit our website. Also, Yummy Comb are manufactured in Missouri, USA.

What Makes Yummy Combs Different from Others?

Yummy Combs are so far, the first of their kind,—and patented for their honeycomb design. They are individually wrapped for freshness, safety, and convenience.

Senior Lab loves Visbiome Vet⭐⭐⭐⭐ Will buy this probiotic again!
Submitted By Harold ✅ Verified Buyer
Our Senior furbaby had GI issues before we used this probiotic. It helped him a lot. Great product!

Ren loves Visbiome Vet⭐⭐⭐⭐ It’s definitely improved my dogs GI issues!
Submitted By Tiffany ✅ Verified Buyer
We give this to Ren for GI issues that were so bad and caused her liver values to be really high, which caused doctors to think she was in liver failure. An Internal Specialist determined it wasn’t liver failure and recommended we put her on this along with some other meds to help her. So far she is throwing up less and doing great!

Sally Anne loves Visbiome Vet⭐⭐⭐⭐ Sally-Anne’s Health Has Improved
Submitted By Carol ✅ Verified Buyer
Sally-Anne receives this probiotic capsule sprinkled and then mixed into her cat food daily. Sally-Anne was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease just this past May. She will be 17 years old in September. Visbiome was prescribed by her internal veterinarian for gut health. This daily med helps Sally-Anne’s digestive system so much; I am so thankful that this med exists for my sweet little girl.

Bam Bam loves Visbiome Vet⭐⭐⭐⭐ I would buy this product again and again
Submitted By Fabienne ✅ Verified Buyer
 I highly recommend this product. Over the years I have used really high-quality probiotic, however, my holistic vet recommended Visbiome for my babies and I am glad I am doing so. Visbiome needs to be refrigerated, which means that the properties of the product are not destroyed over time. Refrigeration helps enhance the overall shelf life of the product, which is in contrast to probiotics that do not need refrigeration.

Hydra Care Helps Cats Drink More Water

What is Hydra Care Hydration Supplement for Cats?

Purina Hydra Care at VetRxDirect

Hydra Care is now available at VetRxDirect!

Purina Hydra Care is a nutrient-enriched water supplement that promotes healthy hydration in cats. It contains nutritional osmolytes to help cells absorb water and combat dehydration. Hydra Care has a tempting liver flavor and helps encourage cats to consume more liquid than. Hydra Care was shown to increase total liquid intake and decrease urine specific gravity when compared to cats consuming only water and dry food. This makes it ideal for cats that don’t consume enough water on their own. And, it may support cats with urinary and kidney problems. Purina Hydra Care is easy to feed, simply offer it in a third bowl, alongside your cat’s food and water.

Why is Hydration Important?

Water is vital to all living things. It affects every process in the body from organ function to circulation and digestion. There are many articles describing the health benefits of humans maintaining water consumption and the same goes for our furry friends. At the bottom line, keeping your cat hydrated is important to keeping them healthy. It also helps decrease the likelihood of urinary stones and helps the kidneys flush out toxins.

What Causes Dehydration in Cats?

As it turns out, cats may not be the most efficient drinkers. Deborah Greco, DVM, PhD, DACVIM, Purina senior research scientist, said when cats drink, they bring up the water from the bowl with their tongue and they form a column of water which they bite off. They’re not getting a lot of water all at once — only about three one-hundredths of a teaspoon per lap.

Dehydration in cats can be caused by multiple things. When a cat has reduced water intake or increased fluid loss, they are prone to dehydration. Overheating in hot weather, a lack of clean drinking water or a period of vomiting or diarrhea can cause fluid loss in cats. It can also be caused by another underlying health issue.

Cats can be prone to kidney disease which can progress to kidney failure. In these cases, the kidneys no longer function properly. In order to prevent dehydration, cats may require injectable fluids. Jessica Quimby, DVM, PhD, DACVIM stated that “Hydration is particularly important because when you have chronic kidney disease you can no longer hydrate or rehydrate yourself once you become dehydrated.”

Signs of Dehydration in Cats

The signs of dehydration are not always obvious. Only a veterinarian can provide proper diagnosis and treatment. Here’s what to look for:

  • Dry gums or dry mouth
  • Lethargy or depression
  • Loss of appetite
  • A decrease in skin elasticity
  • Elevated heart rate

You may be able to detect dehydration at home by gently pinching and lifting the skin over your cat’s shoulder blades. Normally, the skin should quickly return back to its regular position. If the skin stays gathered when you release it, you may have a dehydrated cat on your hands. This is known as “skin tenting” and is a common sign of dehydration. However, this technique does not work as well in cats that are very overweight or very thin.

Keep a good eye on your cat’s drinking habits. If your pet has any sudden changes including a decrease or increase in drinking water, you should contact your veterinarian.

How Can I Get My Cat to Drink More Water?

The first step is: Make fresh water available at all times. Giving your cat good quality water can turn to an effort-wasted if it isn’t replenished daily. Refreshing their water daily encourages them to drink it. Many owners find their cats are finicky drinkers and prefer certain types of bowls, and even prefer to drink in certain locations. Some cats prefer to drink moving water from a pet water fountain bowl or a dripping kitchen faucet. Offering wet food in your cat’s diet can help provide a source of hydration. More Creative ways to encourage your cat to drink more water. Sometimes, despite effort and creativity, cats still don’t drink enough water on their own.

How does Hydra Care Work?

Purina reported that cats offered Hydra Care during testing consumed on average 28% more liquid each day than cats consuming water only in addition to dry feeding. And it was shown to decrease urine specific gravity and osmolality when compared to cats consuming only water alone. Watch their video below to learn more about the science behind Hydra Care.
