- Save Money - Earn redeemable Rewards - Free Shipping on auto refill - Single month heartworm prevention: All available on Vets First Choice.

Save money by using our online pharmacy! Vets First Choice. When you order your pet's medication including heartworm prevention, flea medication and prescription food it will be delivered directly to your home. Earn redeemable rewards on all products, every time you order. You can redeem these rewards at various levels to save money. Watch your emails for coupons and special offers that will help you save even more money on your pet's care. Vets First Choice fully licensed to sell online and offers the full manufacturer guarantee since they are purchasing the supply directly from them.  Other online pharmacies do not offer this same safety measure for your pet.

Auto ship is a great service too. You will automatically get a refill of your needed medications without any charge for shipping, no matter the cost of the medications. You will also get additional reward points for selecting auto ship - again a way to save money. 

Not sure what medication or food your pet needs? Call us. We will set up your order for you in what is called your "care cabinet". All you have to do is follow the link in an email that is sent to go into your care cabinet, pay for the order and your pet's medication will be on the way. 

Lastly all the manufacturer rebates, incentives and pricing is also available. Not all on line pharmacies offer this but Vets First Choice does.

If you have a busy life, travel or the weather makes coming in for medications difficult give our online pharmacy a try. 

We are always here with medications, food and what your pet needs. Offering Vets First Choice helps us offer you a broader range of medications with the convenience of home delivery at competitive  pricing for you.  

Thanks Dr. Foote

10 Things that can Kill your Pet

March 16 - 23rd is Poison Prevention week. So we wanted to share some common items that can poison pets.

If your pet eats any of these, please call us at (217) 253-3221 or the Animal Poison Control hotline at (888) 426-4435. Bring any uneaten portion of food, plant, medication, etc to the clinic with you. Also bring any wrappers or bottles with you. 

  1. Prescription and non prescription medications and vitamins - Dogs chew on pill bottles because the bottle smells like their owner and makes noises. Dogs and cats will eat the pills because the pills often have a coating that taste good.
  2. People food - Grapes, raisins, onions, garlic, chocolate, macadamia nuts, fatty foods, figs, leeks, rhubarb, tomatoes and sugar free candy are poisonous to pets.
  3. Cleaning products - bleach, laundry detergent, fabric detergent, lysol and other cleaners are toxic to pets.
  4. Household chemicals - paint thinner, antifreeze, moth balls, lighter fluid, liquid potpourri, lead paint and other chemicals are poisonous.
  5. Plants - aloe, amaryllis, lilies, cycads, daffodils, ivy, ferns, palms, morning glory, philodendron, pothos, tulips and many other plants are poisonous. Visit this page to see if your plants are poisonous.
  6. Pesticides, Insecticides, Fertilizers - These chemicals are poisonous to pets. Dogs and cats will often eat dead mice or rats. If that mouse or rat that died from mouse poison, then the pet can also die from eating the poisoned animal. 
  7. Household items - batteries, twist ties, coins, jewelry, pantyhose, paper clips, packaging from meat and other foods, socks, yarn, string, thread and rubber bands can get stuck in the pet's intestines. Batteries and coins also release toxins into a pet's body.
  8. Garage items - gasoline, antifreeze, de-icing salt and oil are toxic to pets.
  9. Outside items - compost, cocoa bean shell mulch, algae and mushrooms can make pets sick.
  10. Holiday items - garland, glass items, Easter grass, fireworks, strands of lights, balloons and other items can cause pets to become sick.
