CVS Pharmacy Policy

Due to ongoing difficulty in transmitting prescriptions to CVS pharmacies specifically, and in the interest of improving client and patient care and safety, we will no longer be calling in or faxing prescriptions to CVS. If CVS is your chosen pharmacy, we are happy to provide a written, signed prescription, available to be picked up in person at the hospital. Alternatively, we can mail the hardcopy prescription to you, although additional time should be factored in for postal transport. We will continue to provide the courtesy of calling and faxing prescriptions to any other non-CVS pharmacies that you choose.

Telemedicine Services Available!

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

To get started, download the TeleVet app on the iTunes or Google Play store and create your personal profile and your pets (pictures encouraged!). When you need us, create a consultation request detailing your pet’s issue. Upload any pictures or videos, instant message, and talk with us face to face through a video conference 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.

We look forward to talking with you soon.

*Only available for current Olney-Sandy Spring Veterinary Hospital clients and patients who have had an physical exam in the hospital within the last 12 months.
