Be Cautious Buying Over The Counter Pet Medications From Big Box Stores

These djenniferays, there are many pet medications that you can buy at big box stores and big online pet pharmacies.  For example, you could head on down to Wal-Mart and pick up some topical flea and tick medication for your dog or cat.  I would advise against this.  Why?  Because we don’t know if they originated from a reputable source or know how the products have been handled while at the store warehouse, in transport, and when they arrive at the store.  If they haven’t been stored at the proper temperature or they sat for too long, the products could lose their effectiveness and potentially cause your pet serious health problems.  In fact, I have treated several pets who as a result of using the over the counter products, had to be hospitalized and required intensive care.

We sell many pet medications right in our clinic and even more conveniently on our online store.  When you purchase your pets medications from SRVC either in clinic or online, you know you are getting quality, veterinarian recommended, guaranteed products.  To access our online store just go to and click on the online store link at the top right corner. From there, you will be instructed on how to obtain a username and password.  Purchasing your pets’ medications could not be easier.

I encourage you to call our clinic at (208) 452-7950 if you have any questions about our online store or pet medications available at big box stores.
