All information contained inside TheFilipinoVet.com website is intended for general reference purposes only. All veterinarians and other types of business information found on TheFilipinoVet.com is both self-reported, by the veterinarian and/or an authorized staff member, and collected from multiple data sources that may not be confirmed by the veterinarian. Some veterinarians and other provider information may be outdated or inaccurate; hence, website users are advised to verify information about a particular veterinarian by confirming first with the veterinarian or the veterinarian's office. TheFilipinoVet.com does not provide advice, recommendations, or qualification certification about any particular veterinarian or healthcare provider.

TheFilipinoVet.com or its licensors have no liability or responsibility to users of the TheFilipinoVet.com Site or any other person or entity for performance or non-performance of the aforementioned activities.

D. Rules on Sending Messages


1.Do not ask for prescriptions online. Veterinarians provide their best judgment only after they have actually physically examined the patient. Second, you need a signed prescription from a veterinarian before you can buy prescription medicines.

2.No Flooding. Successive posting of the same messages is prohibited.

3.No Spamming. Posting multiple messages after each other with no purpose or meaning is not allowed.

4.No Unauthorized Advertisements. Reviews on products, queries, and mentioning of something on sale once in a while may be allowed but to flood is another thing. Please make contacts and do business in another venue or contact us for advertising options.

5.Solicitations are not allowed.

6.If you are asking for advice on health, be truthful. Never pretend to be someone else. A piece of advice is only as sound as the information it is based on.

7.Be concise and to the point. Remember that reading on the monitor is harder than reading on paper. The chance of a reply increases if your message is to the point.

8.DO NOT USE rude or offensive language. Avoid using slang or acronyms. This is not texting.

9.Read your message before you send it. Oftentimes, people send messages that are not understandable to their recipients.

TheFilipinoVet.com reserves the right not to send your message to the veterinarian should it be deemed in violation of any condition detailed above.

TheFilipinoVet.com does not guarantee that the veterinarian will reply to your e-mail. That choice is exclusively reserved for the veterinarian.
