In honor of National Pharmacy Technician Day, we are acknowledging our dedicated staff of veterinary and pharmaceutical professionals who are—of course—animal lovers, too! The VetRxDirect pharmacy technicians and pharmacists work with veterinarians to verify and obtain written prescriptions, prepare and dispense prescription and non-prescription medications for pets, and compound custom medicines that are easier to administer to dogs and cats. We also thank our pharmacy team for their hard work and dedication to high-quality pharmacy practices through the Dot-Pharmacy and PCAB Compounding Accreditation. VetRxDirect is committed to providing safety and excellence in pharmaceutical care for your pets.
Want to show our pharmacy technicians your support? Chat with our team on our website, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave us a comment below or on Facebook with #RxTechDay.
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:
