Online Meds Do Not Replace Vets

If I know what's wrong with my pet, do I still have to see a vet before ordering medication online?

Yes. Just as with people, a medical professional must see your pet before you will be able to get prescription pet medication. In fact, when purchasing pet medication online, you will need to have your vet's contact information handy so that the online pet pharmacy can contact him or her for verification of your pet's prescription information.

However, you can purchase non-prescription meds, such as flea medication, from online pharmacies without your vet's sign-off.
