Online Pet Meds

Cheap Pet Meds – Are They Okay?

One of the key questions we hear from pet owners, is whether it really is okay to buy cheap pet meds online. It is no wonder, since our first priority is usually to ensure the safety and good health of our pets. Of course then we wouldn’t want to do anything that could jeopardize either.

That’s why it is important to do a little research when first ordering on the internet. You need to deal with a store you can trust, and one that provides original products you are familiar with.

There are a huge number of reputable online retailers offering discount pet medicines, so choosing one will often be largely a matter of picking the one with the very best deals on the medications you need to buy. But what about those slightly smaller retailers that you haven’t heard about before? Are they trustworthy? And what about all those generic pet medicines they stock? Are they safe even though they are so much cheaper than the brand I already use?

Well, we hope that we take some of the pain out of making your first pet med purchases online. By researching the best suppliers (in terms of both reliability and price) you shouldn’t have to negotiate quite so many stores when searching for products.

We also have a wealth of information regarding generic pet meds, which I am happy to report are designed to copy exactly the brands you are familiar with, and so are just as effective and just as safe to use.

But, if you’re looking for something we haven’t yet sourced, what should you be looking for in a new supplier? Here are a few key things to keep in mind, that should hopefully ensure you make a successful purchase with a site you will keep going back to:

  1. Price check everything! This is really important, since a store that offers special promotions on one item, such as Frontline Plus for dogs, may not have the best prices on everything else on your shopping list.
  2. Check delivery charges too. Many sites will offer free, or reduced shipping rates if you spend enough money in one order, whilst others will offer deals for free future shipping with a small upfront cost. Make sure you have factored in the delivery when deciding where to place your order.
  3. Is the site secure? On pages where you have to enter payment details you should see that the site is properly secure. You should see the web address in your browser change to https:, rather than simply http: at the beginning. Also a padlock symbol will be displayed in your browser too.
  4. Contact details should be clear. Check there is an email and telephone number detailed so that you know who to contact in the case of any issues regarding your order.
  5. Trust your instincts. Hardly scientific, but often our instincts are spot on. If a site seems unprofessional, or contains conflicting information perhaps it is not all that it is trying to be.
For the most reliable service, range of products and low prices we tend to stick with one or two suppliers whom we recomend at the Online Pet Meds site.
