Brantford, Ontario Veterinarian Offers Pet E-Store

BRANTFORD, ON--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2011) - Beattie Animal Hospital is making it easier for pet owners to shop for pet necessities by introducing an online pet e-store as an extension of its large onsite pet supply store. Pet owners can use the site to purchase pet supplies, prescriptions and prescription diet foods online without leaving the comfort of their homes. Items are delivered right to the customer's doorstep, eliminating the need to carry heavy bags of food, which can be especially helpful during the upcoming winter months. The pet e-store's large selection also makes shopping more convenient for busy pet owners, seniors who find it difficult to get to pet stores, and those who don't want to leave a sick pet alone.

The pet supply web store has all the products available at the practice's on-site location and other pet stores, which can save time, gasoline and trips to the animal hospital for specialty items. Products available online are veterinarian screened and include prescriptions, which are not generally available in most pet stores.

The pet hospital will also give pet owners approval to renew prescriptions online without coming into the facility. Specialty food lines available include such brand names as Hills Prescription Diet, Royal Canine, Purina Prescription Diet, and Premium Life Stage Diet. Other items available through the e-store include pet treats, dental treats, allergy-free treats, safe toys, leashes, at-home grooming shampoos and accessories, flea and heartworm medications, vitamins and preventative medicines.

Commenting on the pet e-store Dr. Sami Qureshi said, "As a veterinarian, I know what it takes to keep a pet happy and healthy. They need to be fed a balanced diet, entertained with safe toys and provided medication when they are sick. This website makes all of that easily available to pet owners. Using this convenient service enables pet owners to spend more time at home enjoying the company of their pets and less time out shopping for pet supplies. I think it's a great service, and I'm glad we're able to offer it to the community."

The Brantford veterinary hospital was started in 1952 by Dr. R.A. Beattie. The full-service animal clinic provides care for dogs and cats with services including an intensive care unit, pet boarding, pet grooming and pet store. On-staff surgeons perform surgeries using the latest in laser technology. Urgent care and emergency care are available without an appointment, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
