You’ve seen TV advertisements for Internet pet pharmacies – they promote the convenience of home shopping with the benefit of big savings but are they a wise option for you and your pet?

While most online pharmacies are trustworthy, some have questionable ethics and even some of the top pharmacies have been fined in several states. One way to check an Internet Pharmacy’s reputation is to look for the Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS) seal of approval. VIPPS is a service of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (www.nabp.net) and its seal of approval identifies those online pharmacies that are appropriately licensed to practice pharmacy via the Internet.

Please review our requirements for working with a Pet Internet Pharmacy along with the important benefits our pharmacy offers to you and your pet.

Keeping your pet healthy and happy is important. From routine, to advanced optimal care, our veterinary practice is proud to offer the very best in veterinary medicine.


Our clients always have the option of having a prescription filled at an Internet pharmacy. However, because some Internet pharmacies have dubious business practices, we will need a direct request from you with the name of the Internet Pharmacy and what prescription drugs your pet needs. In order to process a prescription the law requires that a veterinarian must have seen your pet within the past year. Depending on the patient’s medical condition and medication prescribed, this time frame may be shorter.

If the Internet pharmacy is a safe and ethical provider of pharmacy drugs we will ask you to give them our contact information.
