Routine pet medications can be costly – where can you find the best deal?  You may be surprised to find out that many monthly medications are actually cheaper at Blum Animal Hospital than at the larger online pharmacies.  Read more to find out how to SAVE more!

Does the Online Pharmacy Really Have the Best Deal?

Online, national pet pharmacies, such as 1-800-Pet-Meds, do an excellent job communicating their low prices on medications such as heartworm and flea and tick preventatives.  But, for most of the available doses, our prices are lower at Blum Animal Hospital.  In addition, the pharmaceutical companies provide veterinary clinics with special offers and rebates that lower these prices even more!  Therefore, buying pet medications from your local veterinarian ends up saving more money.  Click HERE to see a recent price comparison of heartworm preventatives.

Low Prices AND Valuable Services

In addition to offering lower prices through promotions and mail-in-rebates, veterinary clinics also provide professional advice, care and assistance to you and your pet if there is any loss of satisfaction with the medication.  Between Blum Animal Hospital and the pharmaceutical company manufacturing the medication, you can count on support as well as reimbursement options for any issues or concerns that may arise due to the medication.  This compassion and service is simply not possible through the large, national online pharmacies.  Because your relationship with us is important, we do whatever it takes to make sure your pet is healthy and happy.
