Most people can relate to the lackluster experience that is online shopping. Once the rush associated with a great deal or free shipping passes, we may be left with questions about quality. 

While many internet retailers boast excellent customer service, interfacing with someone in a completely different geographical location can be challenging, time-consuming and ineffective. When it comes to purchasing pet prescriptions online, things can get even more confusing.

So Many Needs

There are various pet prescriptions required for parasite prevention, arthritis, pain, cancer, inflammation, bacterial or fungal infections, and more.

Whether an owner is trying to prevent illness, or wants to treat symptoms of a health condition, pet prescriptions can be highly beneficial to long term wellness.

Time Is Money

Owning a pet is great, but it can be expensive. Once their daily needs are provided for, responsible pet owners have to face the costs connected to preventive care, such as dental care, grooming, boarding (if needed), training, and of course pet prescriptions.

Our team understands that it can be tough for pet owners to keep up with the rising costs of pet prescriptions. That’s why we work directly with manufacturers and distributors to pass savings on to our patients and their people. We offer rebates for many of the most popular prescriptions, such as Credelio, Interceptor, Trifexis, ProHeart 12, and Bravecto.

Online Giants Vs. Buy Local

It makes sense to shop around for the best price, and online retailers are super competitive. While our online pharmacy may not always be able to beat online prices, we can absolutely guarantee that what you’re buying from us is exactly what your pet needs. 

Certain pet prescriptions are highly sensitive to temperature fluctuations, humidity, and light exposure. However, many internet giants don’t have to follow strict guidelines. As such, pets may be getting sub-par products with compromised quality.  What’s worse, some medications may be counterfeit.

For more on this, please take a look at our previous blog post on the risks of online pet medications.

Serving a Need

What happens if there are problems with pet prescriptions that were filled online? Say, for example, the medication was expired or poorly packaged or mishandled during transport? Even if you are able to get a replacement, there’s no assurance that it will be adequate. Plus, the time it takes to fix the mistake and have it re-shipped could cost a pet dearly if they need the prescription for a health condition.

Crystal Clear

Providing everything a pet needs to be healthy can be expensive, and owners have every right to search for alternatives. Indeed, the lure of online cost-savings is impossible to ignore. 

However, pet owners can have peace when they securely fill their pet’s prescriptions locally. It’s 100% safe, and with our online form for refill requests, it’s super easy. And if you ever have any questions or concerns about what you’re giving your best friend, we can walk you through it, step by step
