Introducing Pet Medicine at Hawthorne Pharmacy

There are few things more annoying than having to go out of your way to make another stop on a day full of errands. When you’re going to pick up groceries, run to the pharmacy, swing by the post office, stop at the vet to pick up Luna’s medicine, get the dry cleaning, then come home to make dinner and do the laundry, eliminating even one of those stops can make a world of difference.

Now you can combine picking up your pet’s medicines with your pharmacy run! Hawthorne Pharmacy carries a variety of pet medicines, so when you pick up your prescriptions, you can get your pet’s prescriptions too.

How to Fill Your Pet Meds at Hawthorne Pharmacy

It’s really not any different from filling your own prescriptions! Just have the vet send us the prescription, we’ll fill it, then you can pick it up with the rest of your medicine. If you’re already filling the prescription at a different pharmacy, even, you can just transfer it to us, and we’ll take care of it. No prescription is needed for over-the-counter medicines—just place an order and we'll fill it! Hawthorne Pharmacy will also be accepting CareCredit for the purchase of these medicines (for purchases under $200).

Right now, pet medicine can be picked up from our Pelion location, or we can ship it anywhere in South Carolina. If you have it shipped, we'll make sure you get tracking information so you'll know where it is every step of the way.

Finally, don't forget to fill out your rebates! Zoetis, Elanco, Merck, and BI (the medicines' manufacturers) all accept rebates for different pet medicines we carry. Hold on to your receipts and check out their websites for more details on how to apply for your rebates.

What Pet Medicines We Carry

We carry three types of medicine for your cats and dogs: monthly preventatives, NSAIDs, and some to treat specific diseases.

Monthly preventatives

  • Simparica
  • Simparica Trio
  • Revolution
  • Revolution Plus
  • Bravecto
  • Bravecto Plus

Your vet will be your best resource for which monthly preventative you should be giving your pets, but if you often find yourself curious about the difference between two similar-sounding products, here’s your breakdown:

Simparica versus Simparica Trio

Both products are intended for use in dogs, but the main difference between Simparica and Simparica Trio is that Simparica Trio protects against ticks & fleas, plus heartworm disease and roundworms & hookworms, while Simparica just protects against ticks & fleas.

Revolution versus Revolution Plus

Revolution is available for either dogs or cats. In cats, Revolution protects against fleas, ear mites, heartworms, sarcoptic mites, roundworms, and hookworms. In dogs, Revolution protects against all of these plus ticks.

Revolution Plus, on the other hand, is just for cats and protects against fleas, ticks, ear mites, roundworms, hookworms, and heartworms.

Bravecto vs Bravecto Plus

Bravecto is also available in formulations for cats and dogs to protect them against fleas and ticks. Bravecto Plus is only for cats and, in addition to protecting against fleas and ticks, protects against heartworms while also treating roundworms and hookworms.


  • Carprofen
  • Galliprant

Like in humans, NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) are used to treat pain and inflammation.

Specific Diseases

  • Denamarin - promotes liver function
  • Thyro-Tabs - used to treat hypothyroidism or to manage a thyroid issue
  • Apoquel - prescribed for allergic itch
  • Vetmedin - treats congestive heart failure

Wherever you are in South Carolina, we want to help you keep your furry family members happy and healthy! Transfer your prescriptions and we can get started.
