Anyone use 1800 pet meds for meds like flea/tick protection ? just wondering if they really are cheaper then just buying it @ the vets office ? If they are , are they a reliable company ? Or else who do you order yours thru ? I gotta get Charlie on some flea/tick protection SOON.

TIA /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif

I have never used them, but wanted to try them out. I know of some people who use them and are very pleased.
I was told that heartworm medication/prevention and flea/ticks prevention is cheaper through them.

You should know that things you can only get at the vets office (medicine usually) you have to provide them with a prescription.

Yes! The vet will give you the prescription and instead of paying him (+ a few $$ extra), you'll pay 1800 petmeds what you should be paying.
You can buy from them other stuff that don't need prescriptions. Like eye/ear cleaner, flea/tick prevention, etc.

I use Pet Care Choice out of New Zealand and I've also used Pet Shed out of Australia. No prescription was needed for either place. I switched to Pet Care Choice because they offer free shipping for a year when you place an order over $75. So far, I've had a year and a half of free shipping because of getting family and friends to go in with me to make larger orders (and it's not at all hard to hit $75 when you have 4 animals!).

You place the order and it arrives within a week or 2. Same stuff you get at the vets. I love using them rather than paying $45 for a 3 pack of Frontline.

I use K9Advantix, and have been getting the best price at Doctors Foster & Smith. They frequently offer free shipping on flea and tick products and no prescription is needed. I used to use 1-800-Pet Meds, but have been doing better at DrsFosterSmith.

My granddaughters use Pet Shed and are happy with the prices and service.

Abby's vet bases their prices off of 1800 pet meds /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/sleep.gif

ETA: Call your vet and ask if you can buy a dose or two of the preventative. Our vet is wonderful about not charging for an "office visit" for a lot of things. We just pop in there do what needs to be done, pay for the supplies, medication, equipment and we're out.

Our vet wouldn't give 800petmeds a prescription -- and got really snotty when I called to complain. Ah, well, we're moving away soon. Which in a way is bad, because we have a Petsense store in town that sells heartworm and flea and tick stuff, no prescription necessary -- and cheaper than the vet by about 10-15%.

That's actually illegal for your veterinarian to deny the prescription.

I've bought several things from 1800petmeds. I have nothing but great things to say about that company. They are much cheaper than the vet's office and always throw in free gifts when I order. Not to mention, there are a ton of coupons floating around to give you even a sweeter deal.
