We know that you're as tired as we are of the backorders that have plagued the veterinary industry lately - we're having trouble getting product in stock which means you aren't able to get your supplies when you need them and it's difficult to insure that your pets receive their medications on time.  

To solve this issue, we now have our own online pharmacy - Vet's First Choice.  They have agreements with all major pharmaceutical manufacturers and are able to legally sell their product (unlike the majority of online pharmacies, who do NOT have the manufacturer's permission) - you are also guaranteed that this is authentic, FDA approved product and a counterfeit or a drug that does not meet the US's stringent codes for medications.  

Vet's First Choice constantly revises and researches their pricing and is comparable to other online pharmacies - however, if you find a lower price somewhere else, please CALL US!  We can match or beat verified advertised pricing!  In addition to pharmaceutical products, Vet's First Choice also carries non prescription items like shampoos and vet wrap, etc.  Check them out today!
