Purchasing Pet Drugs Online: Buyer Beware!

Tampa Bay Animal Hospitals | Tampa, FL

“Discount pet drugs — no prescription required” may appeal to pet owners surfing the Web, but FDA experts say it can be risky to buy pet drugs online from sites that tout this message and others like it.

When ordering online:

  1. Order from a Web site that belongs to a Vet-VIPPS accredited  pharmacy.
  2. Mail the prescription provided by your veterinarian to the pharmacy after your pet receives a physical examination.
  3. Order from an outsourced prescription management service that your veterinarian uses.

A veterinarian should physically examine your pet prior to making a diagnosis to determine the appropriate therapy.

Safe. Sealed. Delivered.
