Internet / Catalog Prescriptions


1. Many companies only honor product guarantees when a veterinarian prescribes and sells the product. Purchases from unauthorized distributers such as Internet pharmacies and mail-order catalogs don’t qualify for this guarantee. For example, Merial, the manufacturer of Heartgard, will only honor their guarantee if Heartgard is purchased from a veterinarian or the veterinarian’s web page and is used as directed by a veterinarian.

2. The FDA has found on-line and mail order companies that sell unapproved pet drugs, counterfeit pet products, and expired pet drugs.
