PetMed Express continues to increase the dosage. As the largest pharmacy for dogs, cats and horses, PetMed is well positioned in the prescription and non-prescription pet health segments.
PetMed won the 27th spot on BusinessWeek's list of the top 100 Hot Growth companies. By focusing on their best-selling products and their relationship with vets, PetMed grabbed 1.3 million customers in the past two years, each spending about $76 ('Hot Growth: 100 Sizzling Companies to Watch,' by Arlene Weintraub, BusinessWeek, June 5 2006).
And Standard & Poor's on June 5 announced that PetMed Express, Inc. (NASDAQ:PETS) will be added to the S&P SmallCap 600 GICS (Global Industry Classification Standard) Catalog Retail Sub-Industry Index on Monday, June 12.
Besides the natural alignment with pet health trends, I think PetMed is also decently positioned against high gas prices simply because of its online business model.
