Target Sells Merial Products in Human Pharmacy April 21, 2011

Melissa Heflin of Veterinary Practice News reports, that as a convenience to its customers, Target's pilot program to pet owners, also sells animal only pharmaceuticals in its human pharmacy. However, Merial spokeswoman Natasha Mahanes said the company is NOT doing business with Target.

“Merial does not have commercial relationships with Target or any mass retailers, pet specialty retailers, online pet specialty Internet sites or warehouse stores, and cannot speculate on where they get their product,” Mahanes said.

“Merial has always distributed its products exclusively to licensed, actively practicing veterinarians, and we have not changed that policy.”

As a pet owner you should know where your pet's products are coming from. Merial is not sure, so ask your veterinarian.
