Benefits of Using a Community Pharmacy for Pet Medications

  1. Convenience: Community pharmacies are typically located near your home or workplace, making it easy for you to pick up your pet's medications on your way home from work or on your way to the park. This saves you time and eliminates the need for multiple trips to the vet. An added benefit at Drug Mart Pharmacy is free delivery.
  2. Lower Costs: Community pharmacies often have lower prices on prescription medications compared to veterinary clinics. This is because pharmacies have the ability to purchase medications in bulk and can offer them at a lower cost. At Drug Mart Pharmacy, we always make an effort to find the lowest price and pass the savings on to you.
  3. Expertise: Pharmacists are trained in the safe use of medications and can answer any questions you have about your pet's medication, including its use and potential side effects. They can also help you understand the dosing instructions and how to properly administer the medication to your pet.
  4. Availability: Community pharmacies often have a wide variety of pet medications in stock, so they can fill your prescription on the spot, eliminating the need to wait for a shipment to arrive. If your pet is on a particular medication that you will need monthly, please inform the pharmacist at Drug Mart. We will make sure to keep the medicine in stock and available when you need it for your pet.
  5. Record Keeping: By filling your pet's prescriptions at a community pharmacy, you can keep a record of all the medications your pet has taken, which can be helpful in case of any future health issues.
