Default Dangers of Ordering Pet Meds Online

I recently called our vet to have them verify to 1-800-petmeds that our dog was up to date on his examinations in order to purchase heartworm and frontline medications from 1800petmeds.com. We were told by our veterinarian that they no longer verify that information for online pet medication websites because the websites often remove UPC codes and expiration dates from the packaging prior to mailing them out to customers. This allows them to get medications from unverified sources and send out expired medication as well.

In order to protect your pet from getting expired medication or medication from an unknown source, our vet recommended that we do not order medications online. If we do order medication online, they recommend that when ordering, in the "comments" section of the order to request that they make sure the medications come with both the expiration dates and UPC codes.
