*DISCLAIMER* We did not take this photo at our hospital, but it is something that all of our clients should be aware of. Online pet pharmacies often sell "black... market" pet products. This means that the product does not come directly from the manufacturer, has no guarantee, and may not even be what it claims to be. Purchasing your medications from your veterinarian guarantees the product through the manufacturer, meaning if your pet contracts what the medication is supposed to be preventing, they will pay for treatment. We can help combat costs with manufacturer rebates and in-clinic discounts. We're on your side & we want the best for your pets. Be careful where you're buying your medications from!
