In the last few decades, there has been a large increase in the number of diseases for both pets and humans. Where the medicine industry for humans is at a boom, so is the pet medicine industry, which is now in billions. Due to this, there has been a big increase in the online sellers for pet medicines, which provides all types of medicines, syrups, and vaccines for pets. Normally, when a pet owner takes his or her pet to a veterinary, the medicine is prescribed by the doctor, that can either be purchased outside or is provided from the in house pharmacist of the veterinary. However, many times, people often buy medicines from these online stores. Also, some of these stores do provide these medicines without the doctor’s prescription. This practice should not be done and can turn very harmful for your pet due to different reasons.
Sometimes a specific chemical composition of salt in the medicine can have side effects or can even turn harmful and allergic to some pets. You should only get the prescribed pet medicine, as the doctor would always prescribe medicines without the salts that are harmful to animals. Also, do not buy any similar pet medicine with similar salt composition as it can cause multiple reactions to your pet.
It has been often noticed that online pet medicine stores are selling medicines that have not been approved by the drug association or have been banned due to a specific reason. Many times, these medicines are readily avaialbe online and people often tend to buy them without knowing that the medicines are no longer allowed. Make sure that the online seller has the permission required to sell these specific medicines and that they are allowed to be sold by the associated government body. Never buy any pet medicine online that does not have the marketing authorization.
People often tend to buy the prescription again from online stores. With the approval of the veterinary, one should never be buying the same set of medicines again for their pet as it might not be a requirement for the pet anymore. Any online store that is providing medicines repeatedly without a new prescription is not following the proper norms.
This is one of the biggest problems that many customers have faced while buying pet medicine online. Since there are multiple pet medicine online stores, it can be a possibility that some online medical stores try to sell Counterfeits medicines. In comparison, there are very fewer chances of getting a Counterfeits medicine from the veterinary or an offline medical store. To check for the counterfeit medicines make sure to check the price online. If the price of medicine online is way too cheap, then there is something wrong with it. Also, try to purchase medicines only from a trusted source rather than the attractive online discounts.
