So often, my veterinary team and I will spend time in an office call explaining to our clients how many veterinary medications are counterfeit or are imitation medicines and are not the real product you think you are buying. This includes buying from online pharmacies and stores. Please understand that our veterinary suppliers and distributors will usually only sell to veterinary hospitals and clinics. Many products that are sold as veterinary medications may look similar to products advertised on TV and sold elsewhere, but are actually counterfeit. Please always try to buy your veterinary products and medications from your veterinarian. Not only will the product be the real thing, but many manufacturers will stand behind their product to ensure that your pet responds in the way the product is intended to work.
