LIVONIA, MI — Pet Supplies Plus has expanded its offerings to include prescription pet medications and food.

The company will offer Hill’s Prescription Diet, Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets, flea and tick treatments, heartworm medications and more, with brand name and generic prescription options available.

Pet Supplies Plus is working with Vetsource, a pet health company that provides pharmacy, technology and business services.

“Our team – which is filled with animal lovers – understands firsthand how pets truly become a member of each family. Providing online ordering of prescription medications and food is just another way we’re enhancing our offerings for each and every pet,” said Chris Rowland, CEO of Pet Supplies Plus. “Our neighbors already know they can trust us to provide quality food, treats, toys, beds and everything else necessary for pets, but now we can take that a step further and really help put pet owners in touch with specially formulated prescription diets, medication and more to keep their furry friends safe and healthy.”

Prescription orders placed online through Pet Supplies Plus are routed to the pet’s veterinarian for electronic processing through Vetsource.

“Since Vetsource was founded, we’ve remained steadfast in our commitment to supporting veterinary practices with tools and technology that make their lives easier and ultimately help them focus on providing quality pet care,” said Kurt Green, president and CEO of Vetsource, based in Portland, OR. “By enabling electronic approval of prescription orders placed through Pet Supplies Plus, we’re able to ensure veterinarians have visibility into whether pet owners are receiving the prescription products their pets need and adhering to therapy recommendations.”
