Why Use an In-House Veterinary Pharmacy

Convenience – When your veterinarian prescribes a medication or special diet for your pet, the intent is usually for the pet to begin treatment right away. Getting your pet’s prescription filled on the same day it was prescribed is one of the advantages of using our in-house veterinary pharmacy. We also carry a wide variety of over-the-counter items such as dental and grooming products.

Knowledge – Our pharmacy staff is knowledgeable about all the medications we stock, and can answer your questions and concerns. If you’re concerned about giving your pet medication, or have had difficulty in the past, our experienced technicians are happy to provide instructions on the safest and easiest ways to administer medication.

Safety – When you purchase your pet’s medication from us, you can feel confident that the medication is not expired, has been stored at the proper temperature and humidity, and that you are getting the correct dosage based on your pet’s most recent medical history and/or wellness exam.

But What About Ordering Online?

Nowadays, ordering anything from a pizza to a plumber can be done with the click of a mouse or the tap of a finger. Many pet owners turn to online pet pharmacies for the perceived convenience and lower cost, but if the medication isn’t stored or shipped properly, or is expired, it can lose its effectiveness and cause serious problems for your pet.

We understand the budgeting concerns of our clients, which is why we are always conducting cost-comparison research on various medications and products so we can pass those savings along to you. Additionally, we track and maintain a database of the many manufacturers that offer significant rebates with the purchase of their products, for your convenience.

If you have any additional questions about our in-house veterinary pharmacy, please don’t hesitate to contact our staff.
