The Animal Hospital of South Gorham Veterinary Pharmacy stock different varieties and different strengths of medications to fullfill the pharmaceutical needs of animals. Because the needs of animals as well as the regulations on veterinary medicine are often very different from those related to people, veterinary pharmacy is often kept separate from regular pharmacies. Although you have the option of purchasing your medicines at stores (and online stores) accross the country, there are a few good reasons to purchase from a local veterinarian:
Quality: Veterinary medicine often includes treating your pets with medications. By purchasing locally you make sure that only high-quality medications are dispensed to your pet.
Warranty: Some pet medications come with a warranty from the manufacturer. Purchasing your meds from a veterinarian is part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Should the medicines not work as expected the manufacturers often assist financially in treatment costs. This right is waived when buying from 3rd party sources.
