Dot-Pharmacy Ensures Safe Online Medications For Pets

VetRxDirect has continually held the Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites™ (Vet-VIPPS) seal, a rigorous accreditation program through the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®). The Vet-Vipps seal ensured animal owners they were buying safe medications and medical devices from a licensed, regulated pharmacy. Due to the increase of online fraudulent and criminal activity, the pharmacy websites could display fake certification logos and were selling counterfeit, unapproved, and potentially dangerous medications to consumers. As a continued effort to protect consumers and their pets, the Vet-Vipps program was merged and replaced by the NABP .pharmacy verified websites program. We encourage you to learn more about the Vet-VIPPS merge by visiting the NABP website.

What is .pharmacy?

.pharmacy is a program that verifies safe and legitimate pharmacy websites. It also develops a set of strict standards and policies with NAPB and the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) to ensure online sites are legal and appropriately regulated. The goal is to protect people and animals from potentially dangerous medications and to give you a peace of mind when buying online:

How Do I Know An Online Pharmacy Is Safe?

Protect yourself and your pet by looking for .pharmacy in the website address/URL or by checking the .pharmacy website registry to make sure that your pet’s online pharmacy is accredited by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). Simple as that!

By registering with the .pharmacy program, VetRxDirect proudly demonstrates to our clients the continued commitment to high-quality pharmacy practices and excellence in pharmaceutical care for your pets. VetRxDirect is also an accredited compounding pharmacy.

  1. In the wake of the anonymity of the Internet, it has become easier for anyone to setup a pet pharmacy or any other business without following the standards set by regulators. Thank you Holy for shedding light and spreading the awareness on getting pet medications from the right window. There is one more website Aapex Pet Pharmacy that claims of offering FDA-approved pet medications.
