Shipt Partners with VitusVet to Offer Same-Day Pet Prescription Delivery

New technology to help local practice pharmacies serve customers and stay competitive

Shipt and pet care technology provider VitusVet announced Monday a new partnership that will for the first time bring same-day delivery of prescriptions and products to pet owners across the country directly from their local veterinarian. 

“Now more than ever, veterinary practices need tech-forward solutions to keep their pharmacy competitive,” said Chris Lutz, SVP of Revenue at VitusVet. 

While veterinarians are the most trusted source of product recommendations for pet owners, they are facing business pressure from online retailers.  VitusVet’s newest product launch, VetShipRx, coincides with this first-of-its-kind integration to enable veterinary practices to simplify their pharmacy intake operations while offering convenience to their clients like never before. 

“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,” said Lutz. 

Pet owners will now be able to place an order directly through their local veterinarian and select their desired delivery speed, including scheduling the delivery for the same day or the next day.

“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.”  

Once the veterinary practice fills the prescription or packages the products, a Shipt Shopper retrieves the order and delivers it during the timeframe the customer requested.
