Pet owners have a number of options for procuring their pet's medications, including purchasing directly from their pet's doctor, purchasing online from an "Internet pharmacy" or purchasing from an "800 number" pharmacy.  There are pros and cons to each of these options, and we want our clients to be fully informed so they can make the best choice for their household.

Companion Animal Hospital in Santa Cruz, California is an authorized provider of the medications that we dispense, which means that the manufacturer of these drugs will stand behind their products if there are any problems.  We obtain our products directly from the manufacturer or their authorized distributors (usually by overnight shipment) to distribute to you here at Companion Animal Hospital or take advantage of our new On-Line Pharmacy where these products are shipped directly to your home straight from our authorized distributors & manufacturers!!

"Internet pharmacies", "800 number pharmacies", and similar businesses are not authorized resellers of the pharmaceuticals they dispense in many cases.  Some of these businesses obtain product by purchasing it from "middle men" who acquire the product from authorized channels and divert it into unauthorized channels.  Pharmaceutical manufacturers will not guarantee their products if they are not purchased from an authorized seller, so if any problems develop, the pet owner is "on their own". 

The Food and Drug Administration reports that buying drugs online can be risky.

  • Some of these Internet companies are overseas, and there is a risk of the drugs not being FDA-approved.
  • The FDA has also found companies that sell counterfeit pet products, make fraudulent claims, dispense prescription drugs without requiring a prescription, and sell pet drugs that have expired.
  • Pet owners who purchase drugs from these companies may think they are saving money, but in reality they may be short-changing their pet's health and putting its life at risk.
  • Some veterinary hospitals have valid relationships with state-licensed Internet pharmacies known as outsourced prescription management services. These pharmacies usually stock more medications than the veterinary hospital is able to do, and they work directly with the veterinarian, require a prescription be written by the veterinarian, and are supportive of the veterinarian-client-patient relationship.

We are part of your community, your neighbors.  We are here to answer your questions and to help you when your pet needs care.  That is a main reason why we have researched and are offering you more convenience with our new on-line pharmacy.  In fact, since we are able to reduce some of our costs (checking inventory, ordering, receiving, stocking, preparing) by providing this new service, we are passing those savings on to you!!
