At St. Francis Veterinary Hospital, we have a complete pharmacy to meet the medical needs of your pet. We also carry a selection of prevention products to ensure that your pet is protected, as well as veterinary diets and balance nutrition for dogs and cats.
Prescriptions & Products
We carry a variety of medicines to provide fast and efficient care for pets in Lafayette.
Most scripts can be filled the same day you call us for a refill. For items that are not routinely stocked, we can usually obtain them in 1-3 business days.
We also work with a local compounding pharmacy to tailor medication to particular pet needs, especially when certain medicines are no longer commercially available.
For your convenience, call ahead to have your prescriptions filled to minimize your wait time at the front desk.
