When you need medications for your cat, you have options. Some medications may be available directly from your veterinarian. Your vet may have a partnership with a specific pharmacy. Some medications may even be available from a human pharmacy. And of course, cost matters.
Petmeds.com has been verified as an online veterinary pharmacy by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, which is an international nonprofit organization that supports and works with the state boards of pharmacy to protect the public’s health. They are licensed to dispense prescription medications in all 50 states and have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
They carry all major brand medications and employ the largest number of veterinary pharmacists in the world, ensure the accuracy of your cat’s prescription, identify possible drug interactions, make sure that products have valid expiration dates, and they can suggest generics to save you money.
Just like your human pharmacist, they will answer questions via email or phone. Emails and phone calls are returned within one business day.
In addition to medications, they also carry flea and tick products and a large selection of supplements.
Ordering is simple and quick
Ordering is easy. Simply choose the medication your vet has prescribed for your cat, fill out all relevant information, and place the order. You can either mail in your vet’s prescription, or ask PetMeds.com to contact your vet for verification. Obviously, the latter method is simpler and faster.
You will receive an order confirmation once you’ve placed your order, and a shipping confirmation with tracking information when your medication ships. Shipping is free for orders over $49, shipping rates for smaller orders are extremely reasonable. Standard shipping will take 3 to 5 business days, two to four day priority shipping, two day shipping and overnight shipping are available for a small surcharge.
For maintenance medications, you can select their AutoShip option so you never run out of medication. AutoShip will also save you some money.
My experience with PetMeds.com
I’ve used PetMeds.com several times for Allegra’s medications over the past couple of years. The experience has always been stellar. Orders are shipped very quickly, and often arrive sooner than expected.
If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know I’m all about convenience and saving time when it comes to ordering anything. PetMeds.com couldn’t make the process of ordering medication any easier if they tried!
