Launched in early 2015 by a small group of veterinarians, pet owners and entrepreneurs who refer to themselves humbly as “regular people” who want to “help take care of your pets,” AffordableVet.net is an excellent pet supply and pet medicine website that offers amazing deals along with a convenient, well thought-out user interface. The site, you’ll find, is not only easy-to-use and easier to navigate, but it’s “clean;” that is, compared to the mumbo-jumbo of ads/pop-ups you’ll see on similar pet med sites.
According to the founders of AffordableVet.net, “Most pet medication websites are burdened by images and text you don’t need to read, and are full of phony sales meant to make you feel like you’re getting a deal. We created the opposite – a clean, easy to search website without sales or confusion. Come here, get what you need, and get it shipped to your door. It’s affordable, and it’s so easy.”
AffordableVet.net is still a veterinarian-owned and -operated company, soon to be a fully licensed pharmacy with on-staff pharmacists that can fulfill Rx orders nationally. It currently offers an array vitamins, supplements, treats, toys and supplies for dogs and cats alike. In the very near future, it will be a fully functioning pet med site as well. (The process is slow!)
AffordableVet.net also has a pretty active blog that has topics of interest, plus an engaging social media presence.
“Despite being a new store, we’re competing with the big boys like PetMeds and Fosters & Smith. We offer a low price guarantee on everything we sell. 100% of our products also sold by PetMeds are cheaper than PetMeds. We also offer free shipping on all medication products, regardless of order total. To our knowledge, we’re the only store doing that,” said one of the founders.
We were able to experience the simplicity of the website when we ordered a few products last month, including some vitamins, coat-cleaning spray solution and cat treats. The process was a cinch! We enjoyed that we could easily move from the shopping cart to the “same place on previous page” (i.e. middle of the page instead of starting at top again) with ease – and no site or programming hiccups. (I personally, as a digital marketer and SEO nerd, found this functionality to be near miraculous as most e-commerce sites, in this industry and others, do the SEO and the UI wrong.) Anyhoo- I also enjoyed the wide range of product on the site. I must have spent a good 30 minutes deliberating between this kind of new cat treat for skin/coat and that new dog allergen spray to keep Cricket from itching. In the end, I was all-around pleased with my not-complicated or ridden with site errors shopping experience! AffordableVet.net did it right! And they’ve earned my business!
