Why You Should Buy From a Vet
Although we know you have many options for where to purchase these items for your pet, including online retainers, there are several things to be aware of as a consumer. Many online sellers offer medication and other products with no prescription required, and some even sell products illegally. The FDA has found that some companies even sell counterfeit or expired pet products, or make false claims about them. In addition, since some parasite prevention products require a wellness exam or blood test that can only be administered by a veterinarian, these products should be purchased from a veterinarian only.
By purchasing your pet’s medication and other products from a veterinarian, you know that you’re receiving a veterinarian-prescribed dosage and that the products are legitimate and unexpired. You can also be confident about any claim made about a product that’s endorsed by one of the veterinarians here at Palos Animal Hospital.
If ever you have questions about the products we offer at our in-house pet pharmacy or why it’s best to buy from a vet over an online retailer, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 708-448-6600 and ask. We’ll be happy to help.
