Buying medications online can be a risky proposition. With the ever increasing number of counterfeit drugs and rogue pharmacy websites, pet owners are at risk of buying a product that may not contain the proper medication, or worse, could harm their pet.
Read this recent story from one of our clients:
“Recently I purchased Nexgard off the internet for a fraction of what Fairview Animal Hospital was selling it for. The US based website I bought it from seemed “legit”. When my product arrived, I realized it came from the UK. After looking at the box carefully, I noticed it didn’t say “Approved by FDA” anywhere on the box. I promptly returned it.
My lesson? If it’s THAT much cheaper than what my vet is selling it for, there’s probably a reason, and it’s NOT a good one!”
– M. Thomas, 3/18
Here’s a February, 2018 article from a Florida newspaper about a veterinarian whose product was stolen and later sold on Facebook.
The risks and reports have become so prevalent that the FDA released a consumer alert video to warn of dangers of buying pet drugs online.
