Information on Controlled Substances/MAPS

The state of Michigan requires that all pharmacies we report controlled substances dispensed by our pharmacy for your pet. This information is input into a database known as the Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS). MAPS is used to track controlled substances prescribed for you or your pet(s). It is a tool used by prescribers and dispensers for the purpose of ensuring patient safety and investigating fraud and abuse.

We need your express consent to access this database. If you are uncomfortable with this, please notify our staff so that an alternate medication can be considered. We can also write a prescription to be filled at a retail pharmacy of your choice (where they are also legally obligated to report the prescription to the MAPS database).
