PetMart Pharmacy is excited to announce its receipt of accreditation from the National Association Boards of Pharmacy. The National Association Boards of Pharmacy’s Vet-VIPPS seal is now proudly displayed on their site. This accreditation comes from a rigorous review and inspection of both the pharmacy facility and policies/procedures followed by PetMart Pharmacy. PetMart Pharmacy is now part of an elite group of online pet pharmacies to receive this endorsement. Veterinarian-owned and run within a high volume pet hospital in Tennessee, PetMart Pharmacy is setting the standards for similar pharmacies with their quality medications, service, and knowledge-base of products and medication.
Pet pharmacies that receive Vet-VIPPS, or Veterinary/Verified Pharmacy Practice Sites accreditation, must adhere to strict standards, assuring that quality medications are dispensed in accordance with the federal and state laws. These online pharmacies are continually reviewed and inspected to ensure proper prescription medication standards are met. The criteria, set by the NABP, ensure that pets across America are given authentic and safe medicine. The Vet-VIPPS seal gives consumers confidence that PetMart Pharmacy is upholding the highest quality standards and practices for purchasing and dispensing these pet medications.
In addition to being one of few online pet pharmacies to receive this accreditation, PetMart Pharmacy’s business model provides customers with a higher level of confidence and satisfaction when ordering medications for their pets online. Veterinarian owners, Drs. Ed and Chris Lehman, continue to practice medicine and provide customers with immediate access to expert advice and a wide-range of knowledge regarding the wellness of their pets. Phone calls are answered by veterinary and pharmacy technicians, offering its patrons an enriched experience when obtaining product information and placing orders. Customers have direct access to practicing veterinarians and the pharmacist and manager, Dr. Emily Abbott, when calling the pharmacy.
“Our recent Vet-VIPPS accreditation is a testament to the commitment we have made to our customers and their pets,” said owner Dr. Chris Lehman. “We strive to provide them with an online pet pharmacy that truly cares for animals and a staff that offers knowledgeable consultation about the products. We believe that our clients and customers should have access to medicines they need for their pet without having to pay the high prices seen in a normal retail environment.”
