About Mixlab:
Mixlab is the delightful pet pharmacy that is redefining customer experience in healthcare.
Mixlab launched in the fall of 2017 to make the pet pharmacy experience delightful for veterinarians and pet parents. In just over two years, we’ve established trusted partnerships, and friendships, with veterinarians and pet parents across NY, NJ and CT. We focus on quality and delivering the best customer experience – check out our Instagram and our 5 star reviews across Google, Yelp and Facebook!
