How Chewy and PetMeds Have Medicines That Don’t Exist

How Does Chewy and 800PetMeds Have Drugs That No One Else In The Whole Wide World Has?

Because they’re chalk pills. They are NOT REAL.

The problem with being a condescending “Puppy Pharmacy” outside of the purview of human board of pharmacy law, and with vending drugs from false generic suppliers and NOT BEING REGULATED AS A HUMAN PHARMACY…. is that you can pretty much do whatever you want. Including forgetting to find out what medicines are EXTINCT as far as drugs, and stopping the sale of your “chalk pills.”

So they’re still selling chalk pills as Theophylline.

Don’t you think someone should tell them, “Uh, hey, guys? What’s in the bottle? Since Theophylline’s been extinct for more than a year? Do you even ASK what’s in the bottle when your generics come in?

That they don’t even KNOW that this drug is extinct, and they’re buying chalk pills from a contraband supply line; is EXACTLY why the Chewy / 800Petmed pharmacies (one, and the same organization by the way) CAN NOT carry human drugs and CANNOT be V.I.P.P.S. certified.
