ORDER YOUR PET’S MEDICATIONS ON-LINE VIA THE BEST FRIENDS WEBSITE!
First of all, if you’ve been purchasing your medications directly from us, thank you! When you do so, you get rebates or free doses of preventative medications that lower your cost close to the price of on-line sources, without having to spend time on-line searching for what you want and creating accounts with the supplier you choose. We will continue to spend the time and effort to help you get exactly what you need in person, without limitations as to minimum order amounts or shipping delays.
We do have another option for you though. If you like the ease and convenience of ordering on-line but worry about the drawbacks, we have a solution for you. Visit our website, www.bestfriendsvet.com, and follow the link to MyVetOnline where you can purchase pet medications, special diets and over the counter projects just as you can from Fosters and Smith and other websites.
The FDA has received so many reports of counterfeit drugs that they specifically warn consumers to be cautious buying any drug on-line. On-line suppliers don’t always get their drugs directly from the manufacturer. The more times a drug has been packaged and resold the more chances there are to substitute a bogus product.
Manufacturers do not guarantee the effectiveness of products that you buy from on-line pharmacies. This is because of the problems with counterfeit drugs but also because products may have been stored improperly along the way (especially things that are supposed to stay refrigerated or that are damaged if frozen). If you buy your products from us they will come to you from our distributor and will still carry the manufacturer’s guarantee. For products such as heartworm medications this is very important because the consequences of the medication not working can be severe and costly.

From the FDA brochure Online Pet Pharmacies:
“Internet sites that sell pet medicines can be reputable pharmacies. However, other internet sites are fronts for businesses breaking Federal, State and sometimes international laws. Illegal online pharmacies may sell medicines that are counterfeit, outdated, mislabeled, incorrectly formulated, or improperly made or stored. These medicines may not contain the actual drug, may contain contaminants or the incorrec amount of drug, may not work as well due to age or being stored in conditions that were too hot, cold or humid, and may not have the proper directions for use. If you are unhappy with ordered products, illegal online pharmacies may fraudulently leave you with no way to get your money back. In the end, you may find buying prescription pet medicines online costly to your pet’s health and your wallet.” The Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS) program has been accrediting websites offering pharmacy services since 1999. To earn VIPPS accreditation, a pharmacy’s website must first obtain verification through the .Pharmacy Verified Websites Program, and the pharmacy must comply with the licensing and inspection requirements of its state and each state to which it practices pharmacy. The pharmacy’s website must end in .pharmacy.
Looking for a reliable on-line pharmacy? The FDA has received so many reports of counterfeit drugs that they specifically warn consumers to be cautious buying any drug on-line. On-line suppliers don’t always get their drugs directly from the manufacturer. The more times a drug has been packaged and resold the more chances there are to substitute a bogus product. The FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) reports that many online veterinary pharmacies are fronts for unscrupulous businesses operating against the law. The majority of on-line pharmacies have violated at least one pharmacy law or regulation. The FDA has found companies that sell unapproved pet drugs, counterfeit pet products, make fraudulent claims, dispense prescription drugs without requiring a prescription, and sell expired drugs.
