The Hagyard Pharmacy website has been approved through the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) .Pharmacy Verified Websites Program. Earning approval through the .Pharmacy Program indicates to consumers that the Hagyard Pharmacy website is a trustworthy place to shop for or learn about prescription medications.
The .Pharmacy Program was created to provide consumers around the world with a means for easily identifying safe and legitimate pharmacies or pharmacy-related websites. To be approved as a .Pharmacy Verified Website, the Hagyard Pharmacy site was evaluated based on 10 core safety standards.
“Receiving the .Pharmacy verification from the NABP further proves our commitment to excellence in animal care,” notes Ken Ford, Pharmacy CEO. “This certification sets us aside from other online veterinary pharmacies, and is a clear sign to consumers that we uphold ourselves to a higher standard of operation.”
According to NABP, out of the more than 11,500 websites selling prescription medications that it has reviewed, only 4% follow pharmacy laws and standards established to protect the public health. In addition, 89% do not require a valid prescription, and half of the websites reviewed offer foreign or non-Food and Drug Administration-approved drugs, many of which may be dangerous counterfeits, to unsuspecting United States patients. Further, health and regulatory agencies in the US and abroad have reported cases of patients harmed by counterfeit, substandard, and adulterated medications distributed by rogue online drug sellers.
Being a .Pharmacy Verified Website sets legitimate operators apart from these rogue sites because NABP only approves companies that adhere to pharmacy laws in the jurisdictions in which they are based and in which their patients and customers reside, so that consumers can easily find safe online pharmacies.
