The Importance of Using Accredited Online Pharmacies

Last updated: November 7, 2017

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, not all online pharmacies have your pet’s best interest in mind. The European Alliance for Access to Safe Medicines says that 62 percent of medicines purchased online are below standard or phony.

The Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies reports that 20 new illegal pharmacies appear on the internet daily. According to the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), only four percent of pharmacies online are considered to be selling legitimate medications for pets and animals. The NABP has reviewed over 11,500 online drug outlets and found that 96 percent of them are operating without regard to pharmacy laws or pharmacy standards. They even found that 89 percent of illegal online pharmacies do not require a valid prescription.

Ordering from online pharmacies that don’t have proper accreditation can put your pet’s health at risk. Consumers could receive medications that contain fillers such as dry wall and rat poison. In addition, customers have a higher risk of having financial or other personal data stolen, or receiving spam emails that could carry viruses or malware.

The NABP accreditation program was formerly known as Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites. In an effort to streamline the accreditation and approval programs, NABP has recently changed its accreditation program to .Pharmacy. 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 with .Pharmacy through the NABP.

Our customers can be reassured that we are a trusted internet pharmacy that follows the pharmacy laws and safe practices with this accreditation. Look for our .Pharmacy symbols and know that www.RevivalAnimal.pharmacy offers a safe way to order medications for your pets.
