1-800-PetMeds® Reminds Pet Owners To Take Their Pets To The Vet

Stocks in this article: PETS

1-800-PetMeds® (NASDAQ:PETS), America’s Largest Pet Pharmacy®, continues to work with the veterinarian community by encouraging pet owners to take their pets to the vet for regular check-ups and for health issues. Over the past few months, PetMeds® has created an “Exam Reminder Program” to help remind pet owners of their pets’ upcoming veterinary appointments. These reminders are designed to increase pet owner compliance with their veterinarians’ medical recommendations, thus helping pets live longer healthier lives. So far, over 1,000 exam reminders have been sent, and 1-800-PetMeds® anticipates sending over 25,000 exam reminders by the year-end.

“The pharmacists here at 1-800-PetMeds feel strongly that the best thing pet owners can do for the well-being of their pets is to develop and maintain a strong relationship with their veterinarians. We are certain that if veterinarians let 1-800-PetMeds know when a pet patient is due for their next visit, the Exam Reminder Program will help improve compliance with scheduled exams, diagnostic tests, and other treatments that pets need,” said Eddie Khoriaty, 1-800-PetMeds Prescription Department Manager.

In addition to the reminder emails and other educational outlets encouraging pet owners to not miss any necessary vet visits, the Company also provides a Vet Directory on their site to help pet lovers find a vet in their area. The Exam Reminder Program is now in effect and is easy to use. At the time of a prescription authorization request from 1-800-PetMeds®, the veterinarian (or designee) can fill out the date of the pet’s next exam and PetMeds® will remind the pet owner before the exam is due. Along with the vet community, 1-800-PetMeds® is determined to always keep the well-being of pets in mind, which entails supporting the need for regular vet check-ups.
