Pet owners agree that caring for their pets is often a joyous and enriching experience. Being able to care for an animal and experience the type of love that only pets can give creates a strong bond between owner and pet, so when a pet is sick or injured the owner may do whatever they can to take care of their pet. This generally requires a trip to the vet and, in many cases; it also requires that the pet be given prescription medications for a period of time following the initial visit. Most pet owners do not think twice about the prescriptions, paying whatever the cost is because they believe that there is no viable alternative source for the medicines that their pet needs.

Alternatives to buying pet meds directly from your veterinarian do exist, however. There are a number of websites, which allow you to buy the medications that your pet needs and have them shipped right to your door. The medicines that you order are the same ones that you would get from your vet, and are provided with the full knowledge and authorization of your veterinarian. You may find that there are a number of advantages to using online pet pharmacies, with the biggest benefits being the following:

Reduced Cost

While your veterinarian may be very good at what they do and offer reasonable prices whenever possible, many costs are associated with running a successful veterinary clinic. Online pet pharmacies do not have the same overhead as your vet's clinic, and because the cost of running one of these pharmacies is lower, they are often able to pass the savings on to pet owners. Some medications may be significantly cheaper than what your veterinarian could offer, while providing the same quality that you would receive if you bought the medicines from the vet.

Convenience

When using an online pet pharmacy you can order your pet's medications at any time of the day or night. You do not have to worry about making time in your day to take a trip to the vet, since you can place and update orders online when it is convenient for you. The pet meds are shipped to you as quickly as possible, often arriving within two or three days after the order has been placed. In many cases, basic shipping of your pet meds is even free.

Wide Selection

Whether you are looking for Zeniquin tablets for your dog, Fluoxetine for your cat or countless other pet medications, you should be able to find them when shopping at an online pet pharmacy. Most pet pharmacies operating online pride themselves in having a wide range of medications available for pet owners, as well as a number of over-the-counter pet medications such as flea treatments. You can even find pet accessories such as nail clippers and oral hygiene chews that you can easily add to your order.

Automatic Renewals

If your pet needs to be on a long-term medication then the convenience of buying pet meds online is even greater. In addition to being able to order online and have the medications shipped directly to your house, most online pet pharmacies let you automatically renew pet meds that have multiple refills. This means that the pharmacy can automatically charge your credit or debit card that you have on file and ship the medication to you without you having to do anything; they may even make sure that your new meds arrive before your previous order runs out so that you do not have any lapse in treatment. If you are not sure whether automatic renewals are right for you or need to make changes to your order, the automatic billing can be turned off at any time.

Top Quality Service

Just because you are ordering pet meds online does not mean that you are going to have to put up with lackluster service or inferior products. The customer service staff employed by online pet pharmacies is there to help you with any problems that you may have, allowing you to get the answers that you need by phone or email. Your medications are packed securely to prevent damage during transit, ensuring that you do not end up with broken bottles or other shipping problems. The online pharmacy that you choose should try to get your order processed and on its way to you, as quickly as possible so that your pets can get the medicine that they need. However, this may also take extra time to make sure that your order is correct before it is shipped. Online tracking helps you to see where your package is and it lets you know when to expect delivery to be made.
