Important Notice Regarding Pet Medications
In recent years there have been a growing number of online and regular pharmacies offering pet medications and preventatives.
At West Coast Animal Hospital, our first and most important concern is your pet’s health and well-being. We carefully choose the medications we offer to our patients, making sure they are safe, effective and fully guaranteed by the manufacturers. Unfortunately, this cannot be said about some of the other pharmacies where lower cost is the driving force.
When you ask our doctors to prescribe a pet medication to be purchased elsewhere, please be aware that we, or the drug companies, cannot guarantee that product should a recall be made, adverse reaction occur or break in efficacy is found. The pet drug companies may only guarantee medications purchased through the veterinarians. Should you still decide to purchase your pet’s meds elsewhere, we will ask you to sign a waiver stating you are aware of this information.
As always, please feel free to discuss with us any questions or concerns.
