     We are a leading nationwide pet pharmacy. We market prescription
and non-prescription pet medications, and health and nutritional
supplements for dogs and cats direct to the consumer.  We offer
consumers an attractive alternative for obtaining pet medications in
terms of convenience, price, and speed of delivery. We market our
products through national television, online and direct mail
advertising campaigns, which aim to increase the recognition of the
"1-800-PetMeds" brand name, increase traffic on our website at, acquire new customers, and maximize repeat

Our products

     We offer a broad selection of products for dogs and cats. These
products include a majority of the well-known brands of medication,
such as Frontline[R], Advantage[R], Heartgard[R], Sentinel[R],
Interceptor[R], Program[R], Revolution[R], and Rimadyl[R]. Generally,
our prices are discounted up to 25% from the prices for medications
charged by veterinarians.

     We research new products, and regularly select new products or
the latest generation of existing products to become part of our
product selection. In addition, we also refine our current products to
respond to changing consumer-purchasing habits. Our website is
designed to give us the flexibility to change featured products or
promotions. Our product line provides customers with a wide variety of
selections across the most popular health categories for dogs and
cats. Our current products include:

     *    Non-Prescription Medications (OTC): Flea and tick control
     products, bone and joint care products, vitamins and nutritional
     supplements, and hygiene products.

     *    Prescription Medications (RX): Heartworm treatments, thyroid
     and arthritis medications, antibiotics, and other specialty
     medications, as well as generic substitutes.


     The following table provides a breakdown of the percentage of our
total sales by each category during the indicated periods:

     We offer our products through three main sales channels,
including the PetMed Express catalog and postcards, customer service
representatives and the Internet, through our website. We have
designed both our catalog and website to provide a convenient, cost-
effective and informative shopping experience that encourages
consumers to purchase products important for a pet's health and
quality of life. We believe that these multiple channels allow us to
increase the visibility of our brand name and provide customers with
increased shopping flexibility and service.

     The PetMed Express catalog

     The PetMed Express catalog is a full-color catalog that features
approximately 600 products. The catalog is produced by a combination
of in-house writers, production artists and independent contractors.
We mail catalogs and postcards in response to requests generated from
our advertising and direct mail campaigns.

     Contact center

     We currently employ 111 customer service representatives in our
contact center. Our customer service representatives receive and
process inbound customer calls, facilitate our outbound campaigns
around maximizing customers' reorders on a consistent basis,
facilitate our live web chat and process customer e-mails. Our
telephone system is equipped with certain features including pop-up
screens and call blending capabilities that give us the ability to
efficiently utilize our customer service representatives' time,
providing quality customer service and support. Our customer service
representatives receive a base salary and are rewarded with
commissions for achieving targeted sales.

     Our website

     We seek to combine our product selection and pet health
information with the shopping ease of the Internet to deliver a
convenient and personalized shopping experience. Our website offers
health and nutritional product selections for dogs and cats, supported
by relevant editorial and easily obtainable or retrievable resource
information. From our home page, customers can search our website for
products and access resources on a variety of information on cats and
dogs. Customers can shop at our website by category, product line or
individual product. We attracted approximately 5.4 million visitors to
our website over the past 12 months (June 2003 to May 2004),
approximately 13% of those visitors placed an order, and our website
generated approximately 50% of our total sales for the same time

     In March 2004 we introduced a newly implemented, free service on
our website, called, "ASK THE VET" which is located at Pet owners or anyone else can ask a question and
a veterinarian or pharmacist will personally answer it via email most
within 48 hours. Additionally, all questions and answers are
conveniently available for viewing on the website, which lists over 30
categories on a wide range of pet-related issues. Subjects include
allergies, fleas and ticks, heartworms and bone and joint care.


Our customers

     As of June 30, 2004, approximately 1,250,000 customers have
purchased from us within the last two years. We attracted
approximately 572,000 and 414,000 new customers in fiscal 2004 and
2003, respectively. Our customers are located throughout the United
States, with approximately 51% of customers residing in California,
Florida, Texas, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The
average retail purchase was approximately $73.

     While our primary focus has been on retail customers, we have
also sold various non-prescription medications wholesale to a variety
of businesses, including pet stores, groomers and traditional brick
and mortar stores in the United States. For the fiscal year ended
March 31, 2004, the majority of our sales were made to retail
customers with less than 1% of our sales made to wholesale customers.


     The goal of our marketing strategy is to build brand recognition,
increase customer traffic, add new customers, build strong customer
loyalty, maximize reorders and develop incremental revenue
opportunities. We have an integrated marketing campaign that includes
television advertising, direct mailing, e-mailing and online

     Television advertising

     Our television advertising is designed to build brand equity,
create awareness, and generate initial purchases of products via the
telephone and the Internet. We have used 30 and 15 second television
commercials to attract new customer orders, with the tag line "your
pet's same exact medications delivered to your home, saving you time
and money." Our television commercials typically focus on our ability
to rapidly deliver to customers the same medications offered by
veterinarians, but at reduced prices. We generally purchase
advertising on national cable channels to target our key demographic
groups. We believe that television advertising is particularly
effective and instrumental in building brand awareness.

     Direct mailing and e-mailing

     We use direct mailing and e-mailing to acquire customers and to
remind our existing customers to reorder.

     Online marketing

     We supplement our traditional advertising with online advertising
and marketing efforts. We are members of the LinkShare Network, which
is an affiliate program with merchant clients and affiliate websites.
This network is designed to develop and build a long-term, branded
affiliate program in order to increase online sales and establish an
Internet presence. The LinkShare Network enables us to establish link
arrangements with other websites, as well as portals and search
engines. We also make our brand available to internet consumers by
purchasing targeted keywords and achieving prominent placement on the
top search engines and search engine networks, including Google,
Microsoft Network, and Overture.




     We purchase our products from a variety of sources, including
certain manufacturers, domestic distributors, and wholesalers. We have
multiple suppliers for each of our products to obtain the lowest cost.
We purchase the majority of our health and nutritional supplements
directly from manufacturers. Having strong relationships with product
manufacturers will ensure the availability of adequate volume of
products ordered by our customers, and will enable us to provide more
and better product information. Historically substantially all the
major manufacturers of prescription and non-prescription medications
have declined to sell these products to direct marketing companies.
Part of our growth strategy includes developing direct relationships
with leading pharmaceutical manufacturers of the more popular
prescription and non- prescription medications.

     Order processing

     We provide our customers with toll-free telephone access to our
customer service representatives. Our call center generally operates
from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM Monday through Thursday, 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM
on Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Saturday, and 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM on
Sunday, Eastern Standard Time. Our website allows customers to easily
browse and purchase substantially all of our products and services
online. Our website is designed to be fast, secure and easy to use
with order and shipping confirmations, and with online order tracking

     Our order process consists of a few simple steps. A customer
first places a call to our toll-free telephone number or visits our
website. The following information is needed to process prescription

     *    general pet information,
     *    prescription, and
     *    the veterinarian's name and phone number.

     This information is entered into our computer system, then our
pharmacists and pharmacy technicians verify all prescriptions. The
order process system checks for the verification for prescription
medication orders and a valid payment method for all orders. An
invoice is generated and printed in our fulfillment center, where
items are picked for shipping. The customer's order is then selected
from our inventory and shipped. Our customers enjoy the convenience of
rapid home delivery, with approximately 71% of all orders shipped
within 24 hours of ordering.

     Warehousing and shipping

     We inventory our products and fill all customer orders from our
40,000 square foot facility in Pompano Beach, Florida. We have an in-
house fulfillment and distribution operation, which is used to manage
the entire supply chain, beginning with the placement of the order,
continuing through order processing, and then fulfilling and shipping
of the product to the customer. We offer a variety of shipping
options, including next day delivery. We ship to anywhere in the


United States served by the United States Postal Service, United
Parcel Service, and Federal Express. Priority orders are expedited in
our fulfillment process. Our goal is to ship the products the same day
that the order is received. For prescription medications, our goal is
to ship the product immediately after the prescription has been
authorized by the customer's veterinarian.

     Customer service and support

     We believe that a high level of customer service and support is
critical in retaining and expanding our customer base. Customer
service representatives participate in ongoing training programs under
the supervision of our training manager. These training sessions
include a variety of topics such as product knowledge, computer usage,
customer service tips and the relationship between PetMed Express and
veterinarians. Our customer service representatives respond to
customers' e-mails and calls that are related to order status, prices
and shipping. Our customer service representatives also respond to
customers through our live web chat. If our customer service
representatives are unable to respond to a customer's inquiry at the
time of the call, we strive to provide an answer within 24 hours. We
believe our customer service representatives are a valuable source of
feedback regarding customer satisfaction. Our customer returns and
credits average approximately 1.4% of total sales.


     We utilize the latest integrated technologies in call center, e-
commerce, order entry, and inventory control/fulfillment operations.
Our systems are custom configured by us to optimize our computer
telephone integration and mail order processing. The systems are
designed to maintain a large database of specialized information and
process a large volume of orders efficiently and effectively. Our
systems provide our agents with real time product availability
information and updated customer information to enhance our customer
service. We also have an integrated direct connection for processing
credit cards to ensure that a valid credit card number and
authorization have been received at the same time our agents are on
the phone with the customers. Our information systems provide our
agents with records of all prior contact with a customer, including
the customer's address, phone number, e-mail address, fax number,
prescription information, order history, payment history and notes.

     Our executive offices are located at 1441 S.W. 29th Avenue,
Pompano Beach, Florida 33069. Our telephone number at that location is
(954) 979-5995.  The information which appears on our web site is not

     Under this prospectus, the selling security holders listed in the
section of this prospectus entitled "Selling Security Holders" may
offer and sell up to 9,253,885 shares of our common stock, including
435,000 shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding options and



     We will not receive any proceeds from the sales of the common
stock offered by this prospectus.  If, and when, the warrants and the
non-plan options are exercised by the selling shareholders, the
proceeds of $178,550 from the exercise shall be used by us for general
corporate purposes.

                              RISK FACTORS

     Before you invest in our securities, you should be aware that
there are various risks. Additional risks and uncertainties not
presently known to us or that we currently believe to be immaterial
may also adversely affect our business. You should consider carefully
these risk factors, together with all of the other information
included in or incorporated by reference into this prospectus before
you decide to purchase our securities. If any of the following risks
and uncertainties develop into actual events, our business, financial
condition or results of operations could be materially adversely

You should not rely upon any forward-looking statements in this prospectus.

     Certain statements in this prospectus contain or may contain
forward-looking statements that are subject to known and unknown
risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause actual results,
performance or achievements to be materially different from any future
results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such
forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements were
based on various factors and were derived utilizing numerous
assumptions and other factors that could cause our actual results to
differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These
factors include, but are not limited to, our ability to implement our
strategic initiatives, economic, political and market conditions and
fluctuations, government and industry regulation, interest rate risk,
U.S. and global competition, and other factors.  Most of these factors
are difficult to predict accurately and are generally beyond our
control. You should consider the areas of risk described in connection
with any forward-looking statements that may be made herein. Readers
are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking
statements and readers should carefully review this prospectus in its
entirety, including the risks described in "Risk Factors." Except for
our ongoing obligations to disclose material information under the
Federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to release
publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements, to report
events or to report the occurrence of unanticipated events. For any
forward-looking statements contained in any document, we claim the
protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained
in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.These
forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this
prospectus, and you should not rely on these statements without also
considering the risks and uncertainties associated with these
statements and our business.

There can be no assurances that we can sustain profitable operations
in future periods.

     While we reported net income of $5,814,000, $3,258,000, and
$825,000 for the years ended March 31, 2004, 2003, and 2002,
respectively, we reported a net loss of approximately $2,827,000 for
the year ended March 31, 2001. Our profitability during fiscal 2004
was due in part to an increase in our revenues of approximately
$39,019,000, or approximately 71%, from fiscal 2003. There are no
assurances we will continue to generate revenues at this increased
level, or that we will remain profitable during fiscal 2005 and
beyond. If our operations were to cease being profitable, our
liquidity in future periods would be adversely affected.


Resistance from veterinarians to authorize prescriptions could cause
our sales to decrease and could materially adversely affect our
financial condition and results of operations.

     Since we began our operations, from time to time some
veterinarians have resisted providing our customers with a copy of
their pet's prescription or authorizing the prescription to our
pharmacy staff, thereby effectively preventing us from filling such
prescriptions under state law. Sales of prescription medications
represented approximately 30%, 29% and 34% of our sales for the fiscal
years ended March 31, 2004, 2003 and 2002, respectively. Although
veterinarians in some states are required by law to provide the pet
owner with this prescription information, if the number of
veterinarians who refuse to authorize prescriptions should increase,
our sales could decrease and our financial condition and results of
operations may be materially adversely affected.

We may fail to comply with various state regulations covering the
dispensing of prescription pet medications. We could be subject to
reprimands, sanctions, probations, fines, suspensions or the loss of
one or more of our pharmacy licenses.

     The sale and delivery of prescription pet medications is
generally governed by state laws and state regulations. Since our
pharmacy is located in the State of Florida, we are governed by the
laws and regulations of the State of Florida. Each prescription pet
medication sale we make is likely to be covered by the laws of the
state where the customer is located. The laws and regulations relating
to the sale and delivery of prescription pet medications vary from
state to state, but generally require that prescription pet
medications be dispensed with the authorization from a prescribing
veterinarian. To the extent that we are unable to maintain our license
with the Florida Board of Pharmacy as a community pharmacy, or if we
do not maintain the licenses granted by other state boards, or if we
become subject to actions by the FDA, or other enforcement regulators
our distribution of prescription medications to pet owners could
cease, which could have a material adverse effect on our operations.

     While we make every effort to fully comply with the applicable
state rules and regulations, from time to time we have been the
subject of administrative complaints regarding the authorization of
prescriptions prior to shipment. We cannot assure you that we will not
continue to be the subject of administrative complaints in the future.
We cannot guarantee you that we will not be subject to reprimand,
sanctions, probations, or fines, or that one or more of our pharmacy
licenses may not be suspended or revoked.

We currently purchase a portion of our prescription and non-
prescription medications from third party distributors and we are not
an authorized distributor of these products. We do not have any
guaranteed supply of these medications at any pre-established prices.

     For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2004 and 2003, the majority
of our sales were attributable to sales of prescription and non-
prescription medications. Historically, substantially all the major
pharmaceutical manufacturers have declined to sell prescription and
non-prescription pet medications directly to us. In order to assure a


supply of these products, we purchase medications from various
secondary sources, including a variety of domestic distributors. Our
business strategy includes seeking to establish direct purchasing
arrangements with major pet pharmaceutical manufacturing companies. If
we are not successful in achieving this goal, we will continue to rely
upon distributors.

     We cannot guarantee that if we continue to purchase prescription
and non-prescription pet medications from secondary sources that we
will be able to purchase an adequate supply to meet our customers'
demands, or that we will be able to purchase these products at
competitive prices. As these products represent a significant portion
of our sales, our failure to fill customer orders for these products
could adversely impact our sales. If we should be forced to pay higher
prices for these products to ensure an adequate supply, we cannot
guarantee that we will be able to pass along to our customers any
increases in the prices we pay for these medications. This inability
to pass along increased prices could materially adversely affect our
results of operations.

Significant portions of our sales are made to residents of seven
states. If we should lose our pharmacy license in one or more of these
states, our financial condition and results of operations would be
materially adversely affected.

     While we ship pet medications to customers in all 50 states,
approximately 51% of our sales for the fiscal year ended March 31,
2004 were made to customers located in the states of California,
Florida, Texas, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. If
for any reason our license to operate a pharmacy in one or more of
those states should be suspended or revoked, or if it is not renewed,
our financial condition and results of operations may be materially
adversely affected.

We expect to continue to experience volatility in our stock price.

     Historically, there has been volatility in the market price for
our common stock. Our quarterly operating results, changes in general
conditions in the economy, the financial markets or the marketing
industry, or other developments affecting us or our competitors, could
cause the market price of our common stock to fluctuate substantially.
We expect to experience significant fluctuations in our future
quarterly operating results due to a variety of factors.  Factors that
may adversely affect our quarterly operating results include:

     -    our ability to obtain new customers at a reasonable cost,
          retain existing customers, or encourage reorders;

     -    our ability to increase the number of visitors to our web
          site, or our ability to convert visitors to our website into

     -    the mix of medications and other pet products sold by us;

     -    our ability to manage inventory levels;

     -    our ability to adequately maintain, upgrade and develop our
          web site, the systems we use to process customer's orders
          and payments, or our computer network;


     -    increased competition within our market niche;

     -    increases in the cost of advertising;

     -    the amount and timing of operating costs and capital
          expenditures related to expansion of our product line or
          operations; and

     -    disruption in our toll-free telephone service, technical
          difficulties, systems and Internet outages or slowdowns.

     As a result of these factors, in one or more future quarters, our
operating results may fall below the expectations of securities
analysts and investors.  In this event, the market price of our common
stock would likely be materially adversely affected.  In addition, the
stock market in general and the market prices for Internet-related and
retail companies in particular, have each experienced extreme
volatility that often has been unrelated to the operating performance
of those companies.  These broad market and industry fluctuations may
adversely affect the price of our common stock, regardless of our
operating performance.

If the selling security holders all elect to sell their shares of our
common stock at the same time, the market price of our shares may

     It is possible that the selling security holders will offer all
of their shares for sale. Further, because it is possible that a
significant number of shares could be sold at the same time hereunder,
the sales, or the possibility thereof, may have a depressive effect on
the market price of our common stock.

                         SELLING SECURITY HOLDERS

     At July 15, 2004 we had 22,068,723 shares of common stock
outstanding.  This prospectus relates to the periodic offers and sales
of up to 9,253,885 shares of common stock by the selling security
holders listed below and their pledgees, donees and other successors
in interest. Included in the shares which may be offered and sold by
the selling security holders are 8,818,885 shares of our common stock
presently outstanding and 435,000 shares which are issuable upon the
exercise of outstanding options and warrants.

     The following table sets forth:

     -    the name of each selling security holder,

     -    the number of shares owned, and

     -    the number of shares being registered for resale by each
          selling security holder.

     We may amend or supplement this prospectus from time to time to
update the disclosure set forth herein. All of the shares being
registered for resale under this prospectus for the selling security
holders may be offered hereby. Because the selling security holders
may sell some or all of the shares owned by them which are included in
this prospectus, and because there are currently no agreements,
arrangements or understandings with respect to the sale of any of the


shares, no estimate can be given as to the number of shares being
offered hereby that will be held by the selling security holders upon
termination of any offering made hereby. We have, therefore, for the
purposes of the following table assumed that the selling security
holders will, if applicable, exercise the options described below, and
sell all of the shares owned by them which are being offered hereby,
but will not sell any other shares of our common stock that they
presently own. Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with
the rules of the SEC and generally includes voting or investment power
with respect to securities and includes any securities which the
person has the right to acquire within 60 days through the conversion
or exercise of any security or other right. The information as to the
number of shares of our common stock owned by each selling security
holder is based upon the information contained in a record list of our

                       PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

     The shares offered hereby by the selling security holders may be
sold from time to time by the selling security holders, or by
pledgees, donees, transferees or other successors in interest. These


sales may be made on one or more exchanges or in the over-the-counter
market, or otherwise at prices and at terms then prevailing or at
prices related to the then current market price, or in negotiated
transactions. The shares may be sold by one or more of the following
methods, including, without limitation:

     -    a block trade in which the broker-dealer so engaged will
          attempt to sell the shares as agent, but may position and
          resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the

     -    purchases by a broker or dealer as principal and resale by a
          broker or dealer for its account under this prospectus;

     -    face-to-face or other direct transactions between the
          selling security holders and purchasers without a
          broker-dealer or other intermediary; and

     -    ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which
          the broker solicits purchasers.

     In effecting sales, brokers or dealers engaged by the selling
security holders may arrange for other brokers or dealers to
participate in the resales. Brokers, dealers or agents may receive
compensation in the form of commissions, discounts or concessions from
selling security holders in amounts to be negotiated in connection
with the sale. The selling security holders and these broker-dealers
and agents and any other participating broker-dealers, or agents may
be deemed to be "underwriters" within the meaning of the Securities
Act of 1933, in connection with the sales. In addition, any securities
covered by this prospectus that qualify for sale under Rule 144 might
be sold under Rule 144 rather than under this prospectus.

     In connection with distributions of the shares or otherwise, the
selling security holders may enter into hedging transactions with
broker-dealers. In connection with the transactions, broker-dealers
may engage in short sales of the shares registered hereunder in the
course of hedging the positions they assume with selling security
holders. The selling security holders may also sell shares short and
deliver the shares to close out the positions. We have been advised by
each of the selling security holders that they do not have any open
short positions in our common stock as of the date of this prospectus.
The selling security holders may enter into option or other
transactions with broker-dealers which require the delivery to the
broker-dealer of the shares registered hereunder, which the
broker-dealer may resell under this prospectus. The selling security
holders may also pledge the shares registered hereunder to a broker or
dealer and upon a default, the broker or dealer may effect sales of
the pledged shares under this prospectus.

     Information as to whether an underwriter(s) who may be selected
by the selling security holders, or any other broker-dealer, is acting
as principal or agent for the selling security holders, the
compensation to be received by underwriters who may be selected by the
selling security holders, or any broker-dealer, acting as principal or
agent for the selling security holders and the compensation to be
received by other broker-dealers, in the event the compensation of
other broker-dealers is in excess of usual and customary commissions,
will, to the extent required, be set forth in a supplement to this
prospectus. Any dealer or broker participating in any distribution of
the shares may be required to deliver a copy of this prospectus,
including the supplement, if any, to any person who purchases any of
the shares from or through a dealer or broker.


     We have advised the selling security holders that during the time
as they may be engaged in a distribution of the shares included herein
they are required to comply with Regulation M of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). With certain
exceptions, Regulation M precludes any selling security holders, any
affiliated purchasers and any broker-dealer or other person who
participates in the distribution from bidding for or purchasing, or
attempting to induce any person to bid for or purchase any security
which is the subject of the distribution until the entire distribution
is complete. Regulation M also prohibits any bids or purchase made in
order to stabilize the price of a security in connection with an at
the market offering such as this offering. All of the foregoing may
affect the marketability of our common stock.
