What Do Pet Pharmacy Websites Offer?
Online pet pharmacies offer a huge selection of prescription and over the counter medications as well as alternative treatments, natural formulas, supplements, vitamins and other wellness supporting products.
Retailer’s virtual catalogs usually contain products manufactured by the biggest brands in the market, smaller ones as well as generic options, which are likely to carry a friendlier price tag, compared to the big names.
Such websites serve customers that own common as well as less common pets and animals that include:
- Other Small Pets
- Livestock & Farm Animals
According to State and Federal laws, ordering Rx drugs on the internet (or elsewhere) requires the authorization from a U.S. licensed veterinarian.
After adding the desired products to the shopping cart, users are asked to provide their veterinarian’s contact information (vet’s name and phone number) for verification purposes, before the prescription can be dispensed, packaged and shipped.
More and more consumers are purchasing pet meds online, since they can be obtained at a fraction of the price that the average customer would normally be required to pay at a typical local vet clinic.
In addition, other useful advantages such as easy refill ordering, automatic delivery options, discount programs, convenience, time saving and others, motivate pet owners to use these services.
All legitimate pet pharmacy sites have a few things in common: they are licensed in all 50 stats, they are accredited by the NABP (National Association of Boards of Pharmacy), they sell U.S. EPA and FDA approved medications and have valid expiration dates on their properly labeled products, so it’s important to order only from credible and trustworthy sources.
