The Online Pet Pharmacy Price Tracker allows practices to compare the live pricing that pet owners see at online pharmacies like Chewy.com, 1-800-Pet-Meds, Valley Vet, and more. As our practices face increasing competition from these online channels, we see this tool as a way to gain the upper hand in product resale strategy. It can be used to help your practice:

  • Determine what products to carry for resale
  • Price products for resale to pet owners
  • Price-match an online source at a customer’s request
  • Inform your customers where a product is available for sale

To access the Pharmacy Price Tracking Tool, you’ll need to have upgraded your Vetcove account to the AVMA Direct Connect, or to the AAFP or AAEP Inner Circle.

Pricing Tool Features

To use the online pharmacy pricing tool, just click on the More tab at the top of your Vetcove page and select "Etailer Comparison". Once you are on the pricing tool page, just search any re-sellable product in the search bar at the top of the page, or select a product from the listed categories.

When you search a product, you will see various online pet pharmacies that carry that product listed with a percentage. This percentage is the average % difference that the pharmacy charges over your lowest supplier price for the given product.

For each item result, you will also see:

  • Your lowest current price based on your connected suppliers
  • The lowest equivalent consumer pharmacy price found online
  • The range of price differences between online pharmacies
  • The % difference that the lowest consumer pharmacy charges over your lowest supplier price

For more details on the online pharmacy item listing, just click on the item name. The dropdown will also allow you to view more information about stock and price from your connected vendors.

On the left-hand side of the pricing tool page, you may search similar products and filter by:

  • Previously purchased items
  • Your suppliers
  • Online pharmacies you wish to include
  • Product categories

We hope you’ll use this tool to help decide what to stock, how to price products for resale, and how to appropriately advise your clients! Pro Tip: hover over the ? icon near any feature on the pricing tool page for an explanation.
