You should be aware that pharmaceutical companies will only honor their product guarantees when the medication is purchased from the pet’s veterinarian. Internet and mail order catalogs do not qualify for these guarantees.
All prescription medications you purchase from us are approved by U.S. governmental agencies. Medications purchased online may have come from China, India or another foreign country and be labelled differently than U.S. products. You can tell if a product is approved by U.S. governmental agencies because the label will include “Caution: Federal law restricts this drug to be used by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian”. Counterfeit drugs sometimes include this statement on the label so it is not a 100% assurance that you have a good product.
Some pet insurance companies require all prescriptions to have U.S. Governmental approval for you to obtain reimbursement.
