We know preventative pet care costs money and at Hometown Veterinary Care we understand why you’d want to reduce your pet medication expenses. The online options are very appealing with “Save Up To 50%” headlines and “Free Shipping on First Time Purchases” being bandied about. However, we recommend you consider the value of buying from your local veterinarian.
Why Buy Pet Meds From Your Local Veterinarian?
- We make a point of being cost competitive with online competitors.
- We provide the strongest guarantee: our good name.
- We insure your pet’s health continuity: we answer the tough questions and follow-up.
- You know where your meds came from. They are traceable, have prescribed potency and you know the supplier.
How Can In-Clinic Be Cost Competitive to Online?
Because, we monitor the market for pricing and we provide a one-stop experience. If time is money, we save you both. Many sites require you to have your vet contact them. That’s a time saving step you don’t have to do with Hometown Veterinary Care. And, if you wish, we can deliver right to your door.
We are committed to your pet’s health. Our reputation is based on our good work and your good word. Count on us to do whatever needs to be done to insure your pet’s health. You and your pet are important to us. You won’t get this personal guarantee from an anonymous online site.
Pet Care Continuity
We know your pet. We always answer your tough questions about their health. We make follow-up calls to be sure the prescribed meds are working as anticipated. Should you see something unusual we're available either by phone or an in-clinic visit.
The Downside of Buying Pet Meds Online
Yes, there are many reputable online sites. Our goal is to encourage you to Buy Local. Hopefully we’ve given you good reasons to work with a local veterinarian.
Here’s another reason. The “FDA has found companies that sell unapproved pet drugs and counterfeit pet products, make fraudulent claims, dispense prescription drugs without requiring a prescription, and sell expired drugs.” (fda.gov)
We can trace all our products and insure the correct dosage. Nothing is mislabeled, or expired and everything is FDA approved. In most cases there is no waiting because the medications are in stock.
So, if you are thinking of buying your pet meds online, think again about the value we offer. We give you competitive pricing and an extraordinary level of service, with a guarantee you won’t find online—backed by our reputation.
