It's best to pay full price for some things in life, and this is def one of those things!

The FDA has issued a consumer alert, warning pet owners about purchasing discounted pet drugs online.

Here are some of the main points presented by the FDA:

-Legit companies require a veterinarian prescription note for drugs

-Online companies will sometimes sell expired, unapproved, and counterfeit products

-Frequent use of nonsteroidal anti-flammatory drugs (pain relievers) can cause internal bleeding problems for pets

-Heartworm drugs given to dogs that are infected with parasites can lead to serious complications

-If you are going to buy pet drugs online, only do so at sites that are Vet-VIPPS accredited pharmacy sites

As a general rule, do the right thing and make sure to take your pet to the veterinarian.

Ordering pet drugs online is just not worth the risk!
