Clients who order through other online suppliers will need to pick up a written prescription. We do not fax or give verbal confirmation to outside suppliers directly.
You have chosen us to always provide the best medical treatment for your pets. We know your pets' medical history, and our doctors are personally vested to insure we are providing the best care for him or her. By directly approving these medications from outside retailers, we are backing the product as safe and appropriate. Because of how most online retailers operate, we do not feel comfortable supporting their product and we feel they do not have the best interest of you or your pet in mind. Our Doctors feel strongly about insuring you are purchasing the exact medication with the correct dosage, and that these prescriptions are being stored and shipped as mandated by the manufacturer. It would weigh heavy on our conscious if we had even a passive part in causing harm to your pet by not insuring standards were being met with medication. Not to mention, there is a very real possibility that you could receive counterfeit medication when buying from a non-accredited online supplier.
Our Doctors want to be clear that they recommend clients purchase products from properly accredited and certified veterinary pharmacies only. We understand that there are several reasons why you may want to purchase from "Big Box" stores online; however, we want to help you make the most informed decision for your pet. We urge you to order prescription medications and preventatives from our own online store (which you can access via our website) because we are an accredited and certified pharmacy. As an accredited and certified pharmacy, we hold the Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites ™ (Vet-VIPPS) seal, this is a rigorous accreditation program administered through the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®). The Vet-VIPPS seal ensures our clients that they are buying safe medications and medical devices from a licensed, regulated pharmacy that is in compliance with all applicable state and federal laws as well as national pharmacy standards. Because the online store is through us you will not need a written prescription; however, if you choose to buy medications from a non-accredited veterinary pharmacy, we want to give you the option should you choose to do so.
We understand pricing is often a big reason clients purchase from non-accredited suppliers. We want to provide medications and preventatives at affordable prices and that is why we have started this online store. We are routinely comparing and adjusting prices to try and give our clients an opportunity to buy safe medications at competitive prices. In fact, many of our preventatives come with free shipping and we can have products on your doorstep within a day or two of ordering! The "Easy Dose It" program allows you to have single doses of heartworm and flea/tick preventatives shipped monthly for the amount of time you choose. You pay for the medications as you go, so there are no additional costs for shipping and the entire process is controlled by you! Most importantly, by purchasing from our store, you are supporting our local business in Morgan City. Rather than sending your dollars to a "Big Box" company, please consider supporting your local businesses and shopping locally.
Our online store is 100% secure! From the time the medication is manufactured up until it is given to your pet, it was handled, stored, and filled in compliance with manufacturer guidelines. The medication you receive is guaranteed to be the name-brand medication in the proper packaging and dosage. Medications you purchase from our online store are guaranteed by the product's manufacturer and by us, your trusted Veterinarian. The bottom line is we always want what's best for you and your pet, but we also want to give you the freedom to order products from wherever you choose.
Due to the high volume of surgeries requested and limited surgical spots, Morgan City Veterinary Hospital will begin implementing a new policy upon booking the surgery appointments. Clients booking will be required to place a $50.00 booking deposit to reserve desired surgical date. To get a refund of this booking deposit, cancellation must be made 48 hours prior to surgical date. Any cancellations made after 48-hour deadline is subject to deposit forfeit.
Deposits will be put towards the total cost of surgical bill. Final Payment must be made at the time of surgical discharge. All deposits are final and nonrefundable regardless of the outcome of procedure.
We have designed this policy to maintain an efficient surgery schedule and ensure the fair distribution of the doctor's surgery time for all patients. We hope this does not cause any significant inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.
Thank you for choosing Morgan City Veterinary Hospital for all your pet's needs!
