Your pet’s prescription medications are vital to the health and safety of your animal. The Revival Animal Health Pharmacy is an accredited online pharmacy and we take our job seriously in ensuring that your pets receive safe and proper prescriptions. But beware, if you’re going to order pet meds online, not all online pharmacies have your pet’s best interest in mind.
According to the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), only five percent of pharmacies online are considered to be selling legitimate medications. The NABP has also identified more than 40,000 websites that fail to comply with NABP patient safety and pharmacy practice standards. They even found that 89 percent of illegal online pharmacies do not require a valid prescription.
How Do You Know an Online Pharmacy is Safe?
An online pet pharmacy is likely safe if it requires a doctor or veterinarian’s prescription, has a licensed pharmacist on staff, has a physical address in the United States and is licensed by the state board of pharmacy. These pharmacies also comply with applicable drug laws, professional practice laws and ensure patient confidentiality with privacy laws.
What is the Importance of Pharmacy Accreditation?
Ordering from online pharmacies that don’t have proper accreditation can put your pet’s health at risk. Consumers should use caution when purchasing medication from a website that is not accredited. You may receive medication that is expired, damaged, looks different or has no expiration date. These websites may also offer deep discounts or prices that are too good to be true.
How Do You Know if an Online Pet Pharmacy is Real?
How do I know if my online pet pharmacy is legit? The NABP Healthcare Merchant Accreditation program was formerly known as Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS). The Revival Animal Health pharmacy met the strict criteria that is required in order to be recognized as a safe and legitimate online pharmacy and is proud to be accredited through the NABP.
Our customers can be reassured that the Revival Animal Health pharmacy is a trusted accredited pet pharmacy that follows the pharmacy laws and safe practices with this accreditation. www.RevivalAnimal.com offers a safe way to order pet meds online.
