Exciting new therapy coming for dogs with osteoarthritis!

Available later in 2023, Librela is a monthly injection administered at your vet's office that can help control the pain your dog may experience from osteoarthritis.  Librela is the first and only monthly monoclonal antibody injection to provide long-term canine osteoarthritis pain control. The pain of osteoarthritis can impact a dog’s physical and emotional health. Signs include, but are not limited to, difficulty in going up or down stairs, lagging behind on walks, hesitation to jump up or down, limping after exercise, and becoming more withdrawn. This product is long awaited in the U.S. and has been a game changer in quality of life in dogs in Europe already. Please ask your doctor for more information or to be placed on our contact list when this becomes available.

Pharmacy Refills

We are pleased to announce that our Client Care Specialist, Lily is taking on additional duties as our Pharmacy Technician.  Lily was a pharmacy technician at a busy human pharmacy and has undergone additional veterinary pharmacy technician training. There will be changes in how you request medication refills over the phone.  You will be directed to our Pharmacy Refill line to leave a voicemail detailing your request. Alternatively, you may submit your prescription refill request online through our website. All prescription refill requests submitted to O-S-S-V-H will be reviewed and processed within 72 hours of our receipt of your request(s) Monday through Friday. Please plan accordingly should your pet require a prescription refill(s).

Pardon the noise!

We appreciate your patience as we embark on an exciting journey of remodeling and improvement at our facility. We are undergoing a renovation in a few areas of the hospital to better serve you and your furry companions. We anticipate construction  to go through the first or second week of October and will do our best to minimize disruption of services. Our commitment to providing top-notch care remains steadfast, and these enhancements will allow us to offer a more comfortable and efficient experience for both you and your pets. 

Telemedicine Services Available!

Olney-Sandy Spring Veterinary Hospital is offering telemedicine services with Zoom! With the TeleVet mobile app you can easily send virtual consultation requests to us whenever your pet is sick or injured.

Call the hospital to request a telemedicine appointment for your pet. We’ll get you scheduled for the appointment, collect payment, and send you a meeting link.

Make sure you have your pet with you during the consultation.  Click the Meeting link to start the meeting and the doctor will join the call to help get your pet feeling better again.

Telemedicine consults take the place of certain appointments that do not require examining or performing diagnostics on the pet. In some cases, telemedicine may not be the right option and we will need to see them in the hospital for a physical exam and/or diagnostics. 

*Only available for current Olney-Sandy Spring Veterinary Hospital Clients and Patients.

We look forward to talking with you soon.
