1. At the annual HW test appointment, I ask for a hardcopy of the RX. I then go home and order online, and put the RX in the postal mail to the address that pops up on the final order screen, writing my order number on the RX paper before putting it in the envelope. (Ordering this way, if I put the order in on Sunday night, mail the RX out on Monday, I get my meds by mid-week the next week.)
2. If I forgot to get the hardcopy at the appointment, I ask KV to send a fax to the vet for the RX. With Vet #1, it sits 2-3 days before they get around to returning it to KV, so it takes about the same amount of time to arrive at my door as if I'd mailed off a hardcopy. With another vet, they respond same-day, so I get the meds by the end of the week in which I ordered them--faster than if I'd mailed off a hardcopy.

I have ordered Nikki's Viokase from Drs Foster & Smith many times without an issue. I agree with Magwart to only order from a pharmacy that is VIPP accredited.
Buying pet medications online might save money but be aware of risks | PennLive.com
That being said I am getting away from ordering medications online all together. There are so many counterfeit drugs floating around that it's just not worth the few dollars I could save.

For prescription meds I've always used Diamondback Drugs. They're based in Arizona but will ship cross-country. They're primarily a compounding pharmacy, and I've always gotten good customer service. And when I did price checks on several GI meds that are a bit harder to find sometimes (e.g. budesonide) they had the lowest prices by far.
I've used KV Supply as well, but only for non-RX.

I'm looking at buying Sentinel Spectrum which is a Prescription medication from KV Supply. I've never bought any Prescription medications online before.
What is the fastest, and easiest way to go about purchasing it?
I looked over this page, and there are several options, but I'm just trying to get a general consensus on how you guys go about doing it.

You should price-check meds multiple places -- and factor in shipping costs. Also, Vet-VIPPS membership is something to look for (it's a pharmacy accreditation program guaranteeing legitimate goods are being shipped, so you won't get expired, counterfeit, or gray-market medicine--relatively few online pet pharmacies have earned it). KV has it. I think Valley Vet does too.
KV has free shipping on most items (over $50)--be sure to factor in shipping costs with your price comparison, as they can be high some places. KV has also got very good customer service, any time I've called them. I generally get RX meds from them within a week, as they ship very quickly. The only downside is their website sucks and is very buggy -- I sometimes have to call in the order because the website freezes.
I love when KV offers $10 or $20 KV Bucks on orders over $100 or $150--it makes for great deals on annual meds (like HW prevention). They only do it a few times a year.

|puffswami||thanks. Both recommendations seem pretty credible. Valleyvet seems to have slightly lower prices on what I need.|

|hchorney1||I use KV supply. My vet checked them out and gave them the seal of approval, which says something.|
