LazyPaw Animal Hospital Launches Competitive Online Pet Pharmacy
Local Vets Leverage Main Street Against Wall Street with Prices, Service, Convenience
Any pet owner knows how difficult the prescription process can be. Online pharmacies must verify prescriptions by phone or mail, pricing comparisons can be time consuming, and delivery time on crucial medications may lag. LazyPaw’s new online pharmacy at www.lazypawvet.com is hassle free, simple to use, and offers delivery or pickup options at a fair, competitive price.
“Dogs and cats need one or more monthly prescriptions that are crucial to their health and well being. Big box online retailers have previously been able to beat most local vets on price, but LazyPaw is changing that with competitive pricing and superior convenience. It’s Main Street competing with Wall Street, and we’re making it easier than ever to support local business,” said Dr. Brent Bilhartz, LazyPaw veterinarian and co-owner.
The pharmacy carries a full range of pet wellness products including heartworm preventatives, flea and tick fighters, allergy, ear, pain relief, antibiotics, general pharmacy, and health and wellness. Name brands both vets and clients trust including Heartgard, Revolution, and Trifexis are available. Clients can enjoy timely home delivery or pick up medications at LazyPaw. Every order over $50 qualifies for free home delivery.
An online pharmacy is the most recent addition to a practice thoughtfully built to serve clients and forge stronger bonds between pets, their people, and the veterinary practice. Bilhartz and his wife, veterinarian Dr. Julaine Hunter, shared a vision for creating a practice that would foster long term partnerships with animal owners while administering preventative and wellness-based medicine, patching up minor medical problems, nursing longer term conditions, and administering compassionate end of life care.
The vets also wanted to build a practice that would be accommodating for clients. With this in mind, they built an innovative, unique online appointment scheduling system so clients could make an appointment any time, day or night. If someone has a sick pet in the middle of the night, LazyPaw’s online scheduling gives them the comfort of knowing they have an appointment first thing in the morning.
With just a few quick clicks, clients can request vaccine certificates be sent to groomers and boarders, which is just one more way LazyPaw strives to make the client experience hassle free.
To make home care easier, Hunter features several free videos online that give expert instructions on everything from tooth brushing to getting your dog or cat to take their medicine.
Many vets are revolving doors of employment, with a different person there to greet or give pet shots every visit. LazyPaw only hires true animal lovers who are focused on a long term career in delivering dedicated veterinary service. Several employees, including practice manager Kinsey Eliot, have been with them since the beginning.
“Most vets have a high staff turnover, but we’ve been working with the same great people for years. Every time clients come in, they’re greeted by the same friendly folks. We only hire mature people who sincerely love animals and are looking for a long term career, not just another clock-punching job. Everyone at LazyPaw is here because we love it,” said Bilhartz.
