Can you take back medication if my pet doesn’t need it anymore?
Unfortunately not…. We cannot take any medications back from any pet patient. We simply cannot re-use the medications back to another patient due to safety reasons, which is also why the NY State Board of Pharmacy prohibits such act. However, there are many pet hospitals that work with rescues or shelters and might accept medications as donations to treat financially unfortunate patients. Check with your local veterinarian or vet hospital for details.
