Is Buying Your Pet's Medication Through an Online Pharmacy Safe?

There are many online retailers that sell a variety of pet medications.  Some of these platforms are very reputable pharmacies and may even have a brick-and-mortar presence as well.  However, others are just fronts for businesses that are breaking laws on the federal, state, and sometimes international level. The medications sold by these illegal online pharmacies could be mislabeled or outdated, counterfeit, incorrectly formulated, or improperly made and stored.  Naturally, that puts your pet at serious risk for illness, and is something to avoid. But how do you know which pharmacies are safe and which are not? Determining the best place to get your pet's medications online isn't always easy.  Even when you think you've found a reputable site, purchasing from it can leave you feeling uneasy.

Fortunately, there are ways to avoid the worry and confusion.  You can help your pet live a better life by administering the right medication that has been prescribed for them. Using Murphy Road Animal Hospital as your veterinarian in Nashville is a great way to do that. Ordering online can seem more convenient, but you wouldn’t want to trade your pet's health and safety for convenience. Buying from our clinic can give you options you might not have expected.  We make it easier for you to get your pet's medications without having to take a chance with an unknown and unreliable online pharmacy.
