What is the Vet-VIPPS program?|
The Vet-VIPPSCM program (Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice SitesCM) accredits online pharmacies that dispense prescription drugs and assures that you are purchasing drugs and devices from an online pharmacy that is properly licensed and complying with state and federal laws and regulations.
Vet-VIPPSCM accreditation is offered by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy®, whose members are the state licensing boards for all licensed pharmacies in America, and ensures that an Internet pharmacy is a bona fide pharmacy. It is the best way for patients to determine that they are getting the quality care they deserve.

of state and federal regulatory associations, professional associations, and
consumer advocacy groups provided their expertise to develop criteria for
accredited Internet pharmacies to follow as part of their commitment to public
