Do you know why the drug companies that sell their medications to veterinarians will not guarantee or stand behind those same products purchased at an internet company or big box store? Yes, we are talking 800 Pet Meds and Costco. Because they can not get them legally! They need someone like me to divert products so they can attempt to alter the companies track and trace. Now some of these retail companies can not figure out so the veterinarian gets busted, cut off and sometimes worse with legal, civil and crimminal reprucussions. The reason is simple. Say company A says I will give you $30K for $25K of product. Cool I just made a quick $5K but, you know I know a printer and a compounding pharmacist. Yes, their are bad seeds in every industry. I will have them make up the box and pill and viola!!! I just made $25K with $5K in cost! Yes, that is the extreme but there are all kinds of variations not to mention mis and dis information. So, save yourself some $$$, get it through your vet and if you want ask them to meet you half way or match the internet price. Keep in mind, although the general impression is they are getting rich most of us at best are middle class servicing our school loans and paying the same bills you are so how do you combat this lost profit center? Raise prices on other services the general public can not access, something we dread doing. If we were in it for the money we would have been plastic surgeons and lawyers, sorry guys but you do make a boat load more then us. Finally, and most importantly you want to pay for a product that works the first time. You do not want to be one of the many I see daily that says really I would have never thought.... In general, most vets are honest and of highest moral integrity. We have to look you in the eye and do not want to see an unhappy pet owner and a miserable pet. Use us as a valuable resource to keep you aheard of the curve and save you some real money!
