On Line Pet Meds

4 posts in this topic

I am looking at buy some meds for my pup on line and wondering if anyone else have done it. I have found a couple of websites from Australia and see that their prices are quite a bit cheaper. My concern is that I have heard that they may not be as high quality as what is sold here in the US. Anyone get their meds from an online vendor or one that is overseas?

1800petmeds online...exact same stuff I got from the vet, just a little cheaper. No idea on the overseas stuff, but personally I'd stick to the U.S. for peace of mind if nothing else. Others may have more insight.

The biggest problem I found is getting your vet to write the rx. Maybe its different now but when I tried to order from 1800petmeds they still needed a vet rx. Why would the vet write it so you can go buy it somewhere else. My neighbor is a vet pharmaceutical salesman so I usually just get everything from him now.

I buy some meds over the web but just the one that i dont need a persription for. I buy Cosequin for my labs hip and if buy it online i can get it in bulk for 50 to 60% off of what the vet wants for a small bottle. Its the exact same as what the vet sells. From my research it doesnt realy pay to buy heartguard or frontline over the web. I think it may have been like a buck cheaper after shipping and stuff and then have to get a rx too. I also found that 1800petmeds is alot more expensive compared to other sites. Just goggle pet meds and you can find alot of different sites.

    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
    • I was just wondering if you had a point, that's all. I guess the answer is no.
