The standard markup for items sold from the Veterinary Teaching Hospital storeroom will be 5% over the cost of the item. Items provided to the storeroom at no charge will be free to the service areas in the hospital. The service area will charge clients based upon the pricing policies.


As of 7/1/2009, the storeroom pricing procedure will change from value plus 10% to 50% to cost plus 5%. Likewise, items provided to the Storeroom at no cost by vendors will be provided to service areas at no cost. All VTH units will be charged cost plus 5% for purchases from the Medication Dispensary or from the storeroom.

Procedure (if applicable)

Definitions (if applicable)

Cost: Actual price per item as shown on the wholesaler/distributor's invoice at the time of purchase (including shipment costs if any).
