JERSEY CITY, N.J., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quidsi, Inc. today announced the addition of direct access to pet medications on Wag.com through VetSource Pharmacy. The collaboration with VetSource, a fully licensed, Vet VIPPS certified pet pharmacy, marks the first time that prescription medications are available through a major online retailer with a comprehensive selection of pet supplies in a model that makes veterinarians central to the process and not just a source for prescription approval. This unique online service is offered exclusively through Wag.com, where pet owners can request prescription medications such as Heartgard®, Revolution®, and Deramaxx® in the same place as they purchase their favorite pet supplies and accessories.
"We know that pets are not just animals, they're part of the family, and our customers want the best – from pet food and toys, to medicine, vitamins and everything in between – as fast and conveniently as possible," said David Zhang, head of Wag.com. "With pet medications made available through Wag, pet parents can now truly find everything for their pet in one spot, so they can spend more quality time with their loved ones."
Medications are accessible through VetSource on Wag.com, which offers more than 25,000 pet products from food, treats and toys, to litter, bedding and more. Keeping every furry friend both happy and healthy, the extensive medication offering provides solutions across many categories including allergy, eye and ear care, flea and tick treatments, heartworm preventatives, joint health, pain, thyroid and behavior. For medications requested through VetSource on Wag, VetSource will offer pet owners the same speedy shipping that would apply to Wag orders, with delivery within two days after the prescription is approved by the pet owner's veterinarian, and free shipping on all orders $49 or more, with no surcharges.
VetSource requires approval from the pet owner's veterinarian prior to any prescription sales. Unlike some major players today, medications offered by VetSource are acquired directly from the manufacturer ensuring medications are sourced through a safe channel, ushering a new era of online pet pharmacy shopping.
