Upper West Side Feline Pharmacy

Veterinary Pharmacists You Can Trust

If your cat is sick or injured, it is important that you have convenient and timely access to affordable medications. When our veterinary pharmacists fill your cat’s prescriptions, you can rest assured that you will receive the right medication, the proper dosage, and the correct form. We also make it a point to provide each of our clients with detailed instructions on how to administer each medication and discuss any potential side effects or drug interactions. At Manhattan Cat Specialists, we carry most of the commonly prescribed medications necessary to treat your cat’s medical condition in addition to a variety of prescription diet foods. We also provide online refill forms to help expediate the process.

For more information on your cat’s prescription or to get a refill, call our pharmacy at (917) 242-4235.

Prescription Medications

At Manhattan Cat Specialists, our Upper West Side feline pharmacists are dedicated to providing premier service and making it as easy as possible to give medication to your cat. Therefore, if you cat’s dosage requires less than an entire pill, our technicians will split the pills for you. We also work closely with specialized veterinary pharmacies that can compound nearly any medication into a formulation that may be easier for you to administer, such as a flavored liquid or even a chewable treat that tastes like chicken or fish. Some medications can even be compounded into an ointment that can be rubbed on hairless skin inside the ear where it is absorbed into the bloodstream. Our veterinarians and vet pharmacists are aware of how difficult it can be to administer medication to cats. Therefore, we will work together with you to find a way to ensure that your cat obtains the medication it needs in the least stressful manner.

If you need refills of any prescription, we ask that you always put in your request ahead of time by using our online form or calling our pharmacy directly.

Prescription Diet Food

Medication and surgery are no longer the only options for the treatment of feline illnesses. As veterinary medicine has progressed, the use of therapeutic diets has played an increasingly important role in the management of many illnesses. For example, a cat can be spared of the need for surgery (and sometimes even daily medication) and can instead eat prescription food. The number of companies that manufacture prescription diet food, such as Hills and Royal Canin, has grown, as has the variety of diets that they offer.

Our pharmacy at Manhattan Cat Specialists carries a wide range of prescription diets that can help manage a remarkable number of ailments, such as:

  • Cystitis
  • Bladder stones
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Obesity
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Liver disease

If you’re in need of a prescription diet food refill, we ask that you kindly use our online form or call our pharmacy ahead of time.
