Buying Prescription Pet Medicines Online in Australia

Older pets need a little more care, to maintain their health and comfort. For most pet owners, this means that more medications are required – and those medications are not just over-the-counter drugs, like flea and tick treatments.  Older pets might need heart medication like Cardisure or Fortekor, or osteoarthritis treatments like Trocoxil or Previcox – or even urinary incontinence drugs like Propalin

Veterinarian pharmaceuticals can be expensive – especially where a treatment is for a chronic condition that the pet will have for the rest of its life.  Whilst pet owners are probably familiar with the savings that can be made by buying “over the counter” discount pet supplies from online stores such as www.vetshopaustralia.com.au or www.drcarl.com.au, they may not know that similar savings can be made by buying pet prescription drugs online!

www.PetScripts.com.au is an Australian website, established in 2016, that sells over 700 prescription veterinary medicines online – that is, prescription pet drugs that can only be dispensed by a pharmacist on the prescription of a vet.  The drugs that you need if your pet is, for example, arthritic, diabetic, or suffering heart failure are available from PetScripts, at a significant discount to the price you’d pay at the vet.  

Pet owners love the convenience that online shopping gives and the cost savings an online retailer could pass on.  But even more importantly – customers at PetScripts know that their pet’s medicines are dispensed with the same care that their chemist takes for human patients.  CEO and chief vet at Petscripts,  Dr Mark Perissinotto says “our independent Dispensing Pharmacists and the rest of our team understand that ordering medicines for your pet online requires a high level of trust from you, and we take that trust very very seriously. We love our pets as much as you do, and we would never take a risk on their welfare and we know you wouldn’t either.”

www.PetScripts.com.au  is owned and run by Aussie vets and pharmacists. All products are sourced domestically and are registered with the Australian Government. All orders are checked and dispensed by registered Australian Pharmacists.  PetScripts only sells registered Australian stock of APVMA or TGA approved veterinarian medicines – identical to those used by your veterinarian.  It’s important to note that PetScripts can’t recommend prescription drugs or write a prescription. Only your veterinarian can do that.  

Online shopping for discount pet prescription drugs does require pet owners to obtain a prescription for the drug from their vet.  Most vets are happy to write a script when they know it is being filled by Australian pharmacists, overseen by Australian vets, and complies with all Australian laws.  (Some vets even admit that, by writing a script for their patient, it saves the vet practice stocking so many different and expensive drugs!)  Once pet owners have the script, they just place the order online, and then post it into PetScripts (it can’t be just a photo or scan of the script).  PetScripts can’t send out the prescription medicine until the physical script is received, due to legislation.  If pet owners feel a little nervous asking for a script, here’s some helpful tips 

Another advantage of buying prescription vet drugs online is the ease of ordering repeat prescriptions.  When a prescription includes a repeat, say for Vetmedin medication for heart failure,  the pharmacists at PetScripts keep the repeats of the prescription on file, and fill the repeats when ordered. 

By buying prescription veterinary products online from www.PetScripts.com.au, customers can know that they are getting the same level of care for their pet as they would get from their own chemist, and at the same time, save time and money. 

Please remember, PetScripts does not recommend or prescribe prescription medications. You must have a valid prescription from an Australian veterinarian to order from PetScripts.
