Practice Hub Combines the Chewy Shopping Experience With Your Local Vet Clinic 

As Goodnewsforpets.com is a Chewy affiliate (and we love our vet and love to order online), we were eager to check out the Practice Hub platform.  This innovative new Practice Hub platform provides pet parents with a way to shop at Chewy for your pet’s prescriptions and veterinary diets and still support your veterinarian. No more faxes or phone calls because all approvals are online. For both pet parents and veterinarians it leverages the benefits of Chewy’s quick and reliable delivery, unparalleled customer care team, and Autoship subscription service. Veterinarians set prices, create pre-approved prescriptions, and are compensated with a portion of revenue when customers place an order in-clinic or purchase from them while shopping on Chewy.com.

Several nationwide veterinary groups and independent veterinary practices are already utilizing this new platform from Chewy. “Enrolling in this service is a win for our staff, our clients, and their pets,” said Matthew Dobbs, Chief Medical Officer at Destination Pet. “It just made a lot of sense to give our clients another option to order their pets’ medications with fast, free shipping on a broad selection of pet medications, including veterinary diet food, and remove the hassle of approving online prescriptions in-clinic. This partnership also helps us earn revenue and reduce overhead costs while carrying less inventory in the clinic. Destination Pet’s values of ‘great customer service, innovative offerings for pet parents and a respect for the autonomy of the veterinarian’ align with the core values of Chewy – so developing a new, exciting partnership was a logical step to take.”

The Chewy booth was chock full of veterinary team members checking out the new platform.

“We are excited to partner directly with veterinarians to improve the customer experience while simultaneously helping to grow revenues for their clinics,” said Sumit Singh, CEO of Chewy. “The launch of Practice Hub™ is part of Chewy Health’s ecosystem and reinforces our commitment to support the veterinarian community across the country. This innovative, new platform utilizes technology to bring veterinarians to the forefront of e-commerce and delivers an experience their customers will love.”

We did a trial spin and were impressed. Now to check if our veterinarian has it yet.  Does yours?
