On-Line Pet Pharmacies

We all like to save a few dollars when we can, but were you aware of some of the risks that can be associated with on-line pharmacies? The manufacturers of products such as Frontline, Advantage and Interceptor do not guarantee their product if purchased from an on-line pharmacy. Just a little food for thought next time you purchase your pets monthly preventatives. Our prices our now VERY competitive (if not cheaper) with that of 1-800-PetMeds and the like! We also have our own on-line ordering system — visit us at www.columbusvetcare.com. All of our products are backed the the manufacturer and at competitive prices!
