VetCentric Expands Services in Partnerships With Hill’s and ImproMed

Suggested Veterinary Products

 

VetCentric Inc., a veterinary-only pharmacy based in the Baltimore-Washington area that provides home delivery services on behalf of veterinarians, joins with Hill’s Pet Nutrition Inc. and ImproMed Inc. to expand its offerings.

This means VetCentric’s One-Click Home Delivery will integrate with Oshkosh, Wis.-based ImproMed’s Infinity veterinary practice management software. The partnership allows veterinarians to offer home delivery of pharmaceuticals, compound medications, and therapeutic and wellness diets directly from their practice management system.

Ted Root, president and CEO of VetCentric, said the merge represents a key step in fulfilling a commitment to improving patient health and increasing compliance in practices. "One-Click Home Delivery through Infinity offers clinics easy access to a vast range of prescription medication, dramatically expanding treatment options without inventory cost,” Root said.

To use, a veterinarian checks the “Send to Home Delivery” box when creating a prescription in Infinity and the prescription information is electronically sent directly to VetCentric, where the order is filled and delivered directly to the client’s home. Ron Detjen, president and CEO of ImproMed, said the partnership simplifies home delivery, improves pet health and compliance, and arms veterinary clinics with an easy way to compete with Internet pharmacies.

Under the new arrangement with Topeka, Kan.-based Hill’s, a subsidiary of Colgate-Palmolive Company, VetCentric partner clinics will offer pet owners access to the entire Hill’s Science Diet, starting February 1. VetCentric’s prescription management service enables Hill’s to expand its reach to veterinarians and pet owners by using VetCentric’s veterinary-supportive home delivery business model.

“We are proud to partner with VetCentric because it enables Hill’s Science Diet and Hill’s Prescription Diet pet foods to reach to both veterinarians and consumers directly, faster," said Scott Smith, Hill's vice president of customer development.
