Date:5/7/2009

Data Results in New Compounded Medication Program

GLEN BURNIE, Md., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- VetCentric, Inc., the nation's largest practice-to-home delivery veterinary pharmacy today announced the results of its recent online survey of more than 1,200 pet owners from across the U.S.

Key findings indicate that pet owners feel very strongly about having convenient services and options that help them improve compliance. It also indicated a very strong preference for ordering medications directly through their veterinary clinics to maintain veterinarian involvement. Specifically:

  • 96% of pet owners stated that it was important to be able to order their pet's medication through their veterinarian to ensure that the vet remained involved with the pet's care (51% stated that this is "very important")
  • 90% of pet owners stated it was important to have the convenience of home delivery for their pet's medications
  • 87% of pet owners stated it was important to have automatic refills of the pet's medications so they didn't have to worry about missing a dose
  • 87% of pet owners stated it was important to have a variety of medication forms and flavorings that make it easier for pets to take their medications

To meet the needs pet owners identified in this research and support its partner practices, VetCentric recently launched a new compounded medications program that provides free home delivery while encouraging treatment regime compliance. The program includes free 2nd day shipping for first fills and free standard shipping for all refills when the prescription is set up to automatically refill. Complete information about the program is available through the recently launched compounding microsite at www.vetcentric.com/compounding.

"The results of this survey strongly support VetCentric's core belief that veterinarian involvement is crucial to maintaining healthy pets. It's very exciting to see that pet owners feel strongly about both the convenience of home delivery and keeping their veterinarian involved in their pet's care. This data was instrumental in the development of our new compounded medications program," said Ted Root, President and CEO of VetCentric.

More than 1,200 pet owners completed the survey and all of them are clients of clinics that presently have a VetCentric account. Approximately 50% of respondents have placed at least one order through VetCentric.
