Approximately 73% of PetMed orders were generated from its e-commerce site during the quarter, compared to 70% for the first quarter last year, says Menderes Akdag, president and CEO. “Although our sales were slightly down due to our more aggressive flea and tick product pricing, we had a slight increase in orders, which was a positive,” he says.
