Online Pharmacy Policy
WestPaws advises our clients to steer clear of online or discount pharmacies, and we will not approve any requests, faxed or otherwise, from them. Discount pharmacies like 1-800-Pet-Meds or PetCareRx often purchase their products from a "middle man," not directly from the manufacturer, which negates all manufacturer guarantees. In addition, there are often no regulations on how these products are stored, sold and transported. That means there is no guarantee that the product you are purchasing is as effective as the "same" product you would get from a veterinarian.
If you desire to purchase from one of these companies, we will prepare a script that you can mail in to complete your order. Please plan ahead, as this takes additional processing time and may delay the delivery of your order.
WestPaws will always accept returns of non-expired and properly sealed, unopened (blister sealed) medications. We will also accept food returns in cases of adverse reaction or inappetance. For the safety of your pet and others, we cannot accept returns on any opened medications or medications that were prepared and dispensed by our pharmacy specifically for your pet.
