A: Royal Pet Meds has always sold pet medications but due to customer demand for human medication savings, we have introduced medications that can be used for both humans and their pets. Please refer to our tab entitled ‘You and your Pet’.


Q: What about the quality and safety of the medications?

A: Royal Pet Meds offers you access to both Brand Name and Generic Medications.  The brand name medyications are just that - the same brand name drug you currently purchase in your home country.  However, in countries such as India due to the populations lower incomes, multinational companies sell their brand name medications at a discount compared to what they sell it at in the USA.  Therefore by using Royal Pet Meds you can purchase your brand name drugs at the price offered in these foreign companies.  Finally since these are brand name medications they are made in the same manner and quite often in the same factory as the brand name medication you are currently purchasing.  In fact the only characteristic that is altered is the packaging.

Royal Pet Meds also offers you access to Generic Medications.  Generic Medications are just as safe and effective as their brand-name equivalents. A generic drug is a medication for which the original manufacturer has lost its patent protection, allowing other companies to produce and sell the exact same medication, bringing in competition and driving down prices. Due to strict government regulations, generic medications are, by law, the exact same medicine as the original brand name drug, simply made by another company.

We source all of our medications from India, the world's largest manufacturer of generic medications. India's manufacturing facilities are world-renowned for their product quality and safety. In fact, these same manufacturing facilities often supply the base ingredients for many of the brand-name versions of the drugs that are sold in US pharmacies.

All the drugs we supply are government approved. The manufacturers we buy from follow strict World Health Organization standards for Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP). These manufacturing facilities have been approved by one or several of the following agencies:

  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA), USA
  • Medicines Control Agency (MCA), UK
  • Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), Australia
  • Medicines Control Council (MCC), South Africa
  • National Institute of Pharmacy (NIP), Hungary
  • Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention (PIC), Germany
  • State Institute for the Control of Drugs, Slovak Republic
  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA), India

 


Q: Why are our medications so inexpensive?

A: The World Trade Organization (WTO) treaties between nations protect patents and trademarks. India is one of the few nations that selected a protection scheme based upon protection of the manufacturing process (Process Patents) rather than using the more common scheme of protecting the actual product (Product Patents).

As a result, Indian pharmaceutical chemists can legally create, and sell worldwide, drugs that are still patent protected elsewhere if they do so using a process that creates the identical drug through the use of a different process.

In the United States pharmaceutical makers are given years of product patent protection and thus a monopoly; allowing them to charge any price they see fit. Whereas in India, companies have minimal patent protection, there are many manufacturers producing generic copies of brand name medication and compete solely on price. Therefore the consumer is the winner by getting both high quality medications at low prices.


Q: Why are your drugs less expensive than other pharmacies selling generic drugs from India?

A: Simply put, our competitors are marking-up the medicine more than we are. We took the policy of putting the customer first and pricing our medicine more in line with the cost of manufacture. Many of our competitors, on the other hand, have chosen to take advantage of the customer and charge way more for the drugs than would be justified by their wholesale costs. Our competitors put profits first, whereas we put the customer first. Our competitors grab as much profit as they possibly can, knowing that you’ll pay it because it is still cheaper than US brand-name prices. We make a modest profit with the simple goal of helping as many people with their medication purchases and budgets.
