When your pet gets sick, helping them feel better immediately becomes a pet parent’s first priority. Some pet owners jump on the internet and scour PetMD and WebMD Pets for answers, while others rush to the local pet store and read label after label of over-the-counter medicines. These methods often lead to more questions than answers. So, what can you do to ensure proper treatment of your pet’s aches, pains, and preventative health?
You can assure your peace of mind when it comes to your pet’s health, medicine, and best interest with help from a veterinarian. Always consult us or another vet before trying to treat your pet on your own and always get a prescription when ordering medicines from online stores.
Importance of Getting Rx from Veterinarian or Veterinarian Approved Online Store
We take the guesswork out of how to treat your pet. From dosage levels to what’s right for your specific pet, don’t take the risk of trying to treat them without consulting us first.
When you use a vet to diagnose your pet and prescribe medicine, you are receiving qualified and trusted advice tailored to your pet’s needs. From weight to breed, size, and medical history, we use professional and proven knowledge to most effectively assist your pet with her needs.
What’s the Difference Between Veterinary Rx Medicines and OTC Medicines?
Some of the most effective medicines are prescription only. Some illnesses and diseases can only be properly diagnosed and treated by vets. Some medicines are extremely beneficial when used correctly, but without veterinary guidance can cause serious health issues.
Over-the-counter medicines often have lower levels of active ingredients which can make determining dosage levels complicated and, at times, less effective.
The last thing any pet parents wants is to accidentally cause further damage to their pet’s health with an OTC medicine or prolonging their pet’s illness.
Why Are Some Medicines Only Available Through A Vet?
Many manufacturers don’t want to risk any pet’s health, which is why they want you to see us before giving your pet their product. This reassures them that pet owners will properly use their medicine to treat their pets and use their medicine under the right circumstances. Having a conversation with your veterinarian also never hurts and an exam can better diagnose a pet’s needs.
Why Order Your Medicine from Us?
Vets and online veterinary retailers take proper care to keep pet medicines available and shelf-stable. You don’t want your pet’s medicine to get too hot or too cold in shipping. You also don’t want the medicine to breakdown or spoil.
Ordering from a veterinarian also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers about your pet’s medication and health. Additionally, any medication ordered through our online store or us is guaranteed to be authentic.
Your pet’s needs change over time, which is why it’s essential that you bring your pet in for an annual exam and update your pet’s prescription. Ordering medicine on an expired prescription can put your pet’s health at risk.
