Countryside Animal Clinic is dedicated to providing the best service and care to all of our clients. One way that we are able to accomplish this is by providing medications in our clinic for your pet. The advantage to having a pharmacy within our practice is that the quality of medicine and the service provided by the manufacturer of the medicine is unparalleled when compared to discount online sites. Often, discount websites are unable to provide a manufacturer’s guarantee on the quality and usefulness of medications. Our staff works directly with the companies making these medications, so if there is an issue with a medication, we can resolve the problem right away. By providing a pharmacy on site, Countryside Animal Clinic is able to take their customer service and satisfaction to a higher level.
