source of dog perscription drugs

2018 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  middleofnowhere
What on-line source do people use for perscriptions? My vet charges $68.00 a bottle for a med. that I can get at another vet office for, get this, $40.00. My usual on line source has it for $58.00. The difficulty with the other vet is that my vet has to call it in -- and it is awkward to ask. Today the more reasonable vet was out. So I am looking for an on-line source. (They fax perscriptions all the time for people.) We use 3 pills a day and these are 50 pill this would be something along the lines of a $500 a year in savings...

ei ei ohhhh help.

I've found that different sites have good prices on some drugs but you have to shop around. I've used these places for ordering various prescription drugs - GOOD LUCK.

If it's a "human" drug, you might want to check WalMart, Target, etc.
yes, walmart has a human drug called meloxicam aka metacam you can get for 4.00 for a 30 day supply. i am thrilled with that. your vet can call it in.

Before Gabapentin came down in price it used to cost me $3 a TABLET from the vet. I found it much cheaper at (98c a tablet). I always shop around, calling local pharmacies, looking online and first of all checking the Walmart $4 list.

Thanks folks. What we're looking for is Vetmedin - following the links (Arycrest) it doesn't seem to get any cheaper than $58. Dog heart medicine. I'm going to talk to her about enalapril which is dirt cheap and might work. Yes, this one (vetmedin) is working but @ 90 tablets a month (3 a day) this is sorta silly unless the other drug doesn't work... I've got Derramax on line now and it is about 1/3 cheaper that way.
Last month the dogs, without any operation or major trama, cost me more than the mortgage! That's with one bill still outstanding. I love my vet but I don't want to send her kids through college or make all her boat payments.
