CONSUMER ALERT

The United States Food and Drug Administration has issued an alert to pet owners, warning them about the dangers of buying discounted pet drugs online. The FDA warns that its own investigations have found online companies that sell unapproved drugs or other counterfeit products. With this in mind, we advise that you purchase your heartworm prevention, flea & tick prevention, and pain medications from your veterinarian. We receive these products directly from the manufacturer to assure that your pet receives a genuine and safe product.
