OCALA, Fla., May 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Town and Country Animal Hospital has announced that pet owners can take advantage of the hospital's online pet store and pet portal. The veterinary hospital provides free, 24-hour online access to the Pet Portal. Pet owners can check their pets' health records, and confirm vaccinations. They may also request renewals for prescription medication, including heartworm preventatives, from a veterinarian.
Veterinarian Dr. Kelly Culbertson stated that the animal hospital's online pet store and pet portal was designed for the convenience of pet owners. Pet owners can securely login to the portal to purchase pet products, renew prescriptions, and check their pets' health records. Pet owners can also set up a reminder for administering pet medications.
"Our online pet portal and store makes it easier than ever before for busy pet owners to stay on top of their pet's wellness needs," said Dr. Culbertson.
Dr. Culbertson emphasized that regular Ocala pet wellness care is essential to a pet's overall well being. Annual vaccinations along with monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention help keep pets healthy and protected from illnesses.
"While pet owners always want the best for their pets, we recognize that with busy schedules, it can be difficult to stay on top of a pet's wellness needs," said Dr. Culbertson. "That's why we are so excited to offer this important service. Online records keep a pet's vital information secure and are easily accessible to pet owners."
Pet owners can set up a Pet Portal account by contacting the animal hospital. Pet owners must enter an email address that is currently on file with the veterinary hospital. Once the account is activated, pet owners may use the Pet Portal for 24/7 access to pet health records. Pet owners who have questions about their pet's health, dietary needs or medication may also contact their veterinarian via the Pet Portal.
Additionally, once an account is activated, pet owners can upload photos of their pet and maintain an online gallery of pet photos. The Pet Portal also provides access to an online community where pet owners can share information, stories and pet memorials with other users.
"Proactive wellness care is the foundation for long-term health," said Dr. Culbertson. "At our veterinary hospital, we are committed to making it easy for pet owners to give their pets the care they need. The online Pet Portal and Pet Store complements the resources currently available on our website."
The veterinary hospital's website also features information on different wellness services, including spay neuter operations, vet dermatology and pet surgery. These resources, together with the Pet Portal, are designed to educate pet owners about the basics of wellness care.
"From our very first location in Quail Meadow Commons to our current, state-of-the-art facilities, we are proud to provide high quality care for the Ocala pet community," said Dr. Culbertson. "Our Pet Portal continues our long commitment to integrating cutting-edge technology with compassionate service."
