Shipt offers same-day vets prescription deliveries

Shipt is to offer same day veterinary pharmacy deliveries to customers across the US from their local vets through VitusVet.

The VetShipRx product allows veterinary practices to simplify their pharmacy intake operations while offering even greater convenience to their clients.

Pet owners will be able to place an order through their vet’s website and select delivery speed that will include same-day delivery or next-day delivery. The vets will pick the order and a Shipt Shopper will collect the order from the practice and deliver it to the customer.

“Now more than ever, veterinary practices need tech-forward solutions to keep their pharmacy competitive,” said Chris Lutz, SVP of Revenue at VitusVet. “VetShipRx is designed to help veterinarians generate more value through direct client interactions and, in partnership with Shipt, delight pet owners with greater freedom of choice when purchasing those recommended products their pets need.”

“Same-day delivery has transformed over the last year from a nice-to-have to a must-have – and the consumer desire for fast delivery is here to stay,” said Rina Hurst, Chief Business Officer at Shipt. 

“Our partnership with VitusVet will empower veterinarians to offer this convenience to their clients, with Shipt Shoppers known for reliability and delivering each order with care.”
