WSPC’s Executive Vice President of Supplier Relations Vince Cardinale, RPh, has been negotiating with suppliers on your behalf, and thanks to those negotiations, we have a number of great opportunities that you will want to take advantage of! Our goal at WSPC is to put together a host of suppliers that add value to your everyday pharmacy operations and that help you find niche opportunities to increase profits.
As we add new suppliers, we will send out an email containing details and publish the information on the WSPC website. You can reference the site at any time at https://www.wspcrx.com/members/suppliers/ or go to Member Home and then Suppliers to locate any details you might need.
Important: When placing an order for the first time with a new WSPC Supplier Partner, please reference that you are a WSPC member.

Did you know that animal prescriptions are now a $10 billion market and over 65% of U.S. households own at least one pet? As of April 2016, 36 states have enacted laws that require veterinarians to issue prescriptions to their customers. Animal Med Express offers you some great benefits to compete in the Vet Rx market:
- Animal Med Express offers one of the most complete animal medication formularies at a low cost.
- Pharmacies set their selling prices at an average of 20-25% mark-up.
Pharmacies who provide 3% of animal Rx from the local veterinary hospitals could increase sales $84K per year. The key to success is customer awareness and education, which is why Animal Med Express also provides:
- In-store sign kits.
- A script for a voice mail message on your phone system announcing the availability of animal pharmaceuticals.
Your website and Facebook are other great ways to pull in customers. Please view the intro video of Animal Med Express at https://vimeo.com/180779150.
