Home Delivery: Our Online Pet Pharmacy
In the age of the internet, home delivery is nothing new. Jeff Bezos has led the charge in saving us all time and energy by making almost anything – even groceries – available for online purchase and home delivery. The modern world has put everything at our fingertips, but when it comes to pet medications, this can be risky and even deadly.
Highway Veterinary Hospital recognizes the value of your time, and we also want pets to stay safe. That’s why we’ve launched our own online store that’s both convenient and provides you with a trusted, reputable online pet pharmacy.
The Online Pet Pharmacy Problem
Online pet pharmacies have been around for many years. In a nutshell, you order your pet’s medications, products, and food from home. The company you order with contacts us for approval. Your products are then delivered when you need them – straight to your door.
However, not all online pharmacies are created equal. While getting the best price is important, buying from a pharmacy that’s not associated with your veterinarian (and therefore not vetted for quality and authenticity) isn’t a good idea. Some of the risks associated with online pharmacies include:
- Counterfeit medications
- Improper storage (leading to degradation of the product)
- Short-dated medication
- Possible contamination
- May not contain active ingredients
In short, many companies cannot guarantee that the products they sell are legitimately sourced, stored, and dispensed. What’s more, they don’t seem to care about the safety of pets.
Home Delivery from Highway Veterinary Hospital
Our clients want the best for their pets, and they want the security of knowing that medications, products, and pet food ordered online are safe for their pets. That’s where our home delivery service comes in. This new feature, accessible from our website, allows you to:
- Refill your pet’s prescriptions online and have them delivered to your door
- Order pet food and treats with no shipping charges
- Sign up for autoship (never miss a dose of your pet’s preventives again!)
- Use RemindMeSM to order monthly single doses of flea, tick, and heartworm medications
We’ve partnered with Vetsource, the leading, trusted online pet pharmacy in the veterinary community. Vetsource always purchases their products directly from manufacturers, so you can feel confident knowing that what we prescribe is exactly what you’ll be getting. You can also rest assured knowing that your pet’s medications will be stored, handled, and shipped at the correct temperature to avoid spoilage and to maintain their effectiveness.
Of course, we can also always refill your pet’s medications in our hospital at any time. If you’d like assistance with our home delivery service, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
