Buying Pet Medications Online

Technology has come a long way. Now we could do almost anything online even buy our pet’s medication but is it safe?  The FDA has warned about buying prescription medication online.  The truth is buying pet medication online is very safe. You get the same medication as the ones you get from the vets office but you must d0 your homework first.

To make sure that you get legitimate medications, make sure that you’re on a secure internet site. You should see a small gold padlock in the status bar of your browser (usually on the bottom). If the gold padlock is open the page is not encrypted. If the gold padlock is closed that means the sight has 128 bit encryption which means that it offers the highest level of protection offered for all your Internet communications, including credit card use and other financial transactions. It is important to note that the only place the locked padlock is important is on the page where you are entering your credit card or bank information. It does not have to appear on every page of the website. Make sure that you are ordering the exact medication that your vet prescribed. When in doubt, always verify with your vet. You must also know the dosage so before you attempt to order pet meds online, it is vital that you have this information correct!

The advantage of buying online is that you may get the medication a bit cheaper but that’s not the main reason. Taking your pet in to the vet can be risky if there are other sick pets in the waiting area. If your pet is sick, you probably would rather keep him home and not disturb him .In this case getting the medication delivered has it’s advantages.

Remember, your pets count!
