VetSource Partners with Putney

PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- VetSource, a leading veterinarian-focused specialty pharmacy and home delivery company today announced a partnership with Putney, Inc., a pharmaceutical company focused on the development and sale of generic and specialty prescription drugs for dogs and cats. VetSource will now offer Putney's FDA approved generic Carprofen Caplets to provide veterinarians with a cost effective way for their pet patients to get this frequently prescribed drug. Carprofen is indicated in dogs for pain associated with canine osteoarthritis, and for controlling post-operative pain from certain surgeries.

Putney's Carprofen Caplets are equivalent to Pfizer's Rimadyl® branded carprofen caplets but priced to cost veterinarians as much as 25% less.

"In this economy we are pleased to add FDA approved, cost-effective generic prescribing options such as Putney's Carprofen Caplets to our specialty pharmacy portfolio," offered Andrew Bane, Ph.D., Vice President at VetSource. "This further cements our commitment to offer veterinarians a comprehensive inventory of FDA approved pharmaceuticals, as well as nutritional diets and specialty pharmacy items for their practices and their clients through veterinarian-sponsored home delivery."

Putney says its affiliation with VetSource furthers its goal of getting quality, FDA approved, affordable generic drugs to companion animal veterinary practices. "Generic drugs help keep pharmacy revenues in the practice, permit veterinarians to make treatment decisions based on the animal's needs rather than on price, and enable pet owners to afford the recommended course of treatment especially in this tough economy," says Jean Hoffman, CEO of Putney. Moving forward Putney anticipates offering additional forms of carprofen, including a bioequivalent, palatable chew.

Putney's Carprofen Caplets are available to any veterinary hospital that is enrolled in VetSource pharmacy programs nationwide.
