Last Edited by lolu13 April 7, 2016 at 02:33 PM
UPDATED 4/6/2016: Please refer to the last page of this thread and the wiki for additional sites that can save you money. Also please add to the wiki if you found a cheaper price somewhere.

This thread is all about finding the lowest priced medicines for our pets. It is going on 10 years now, so there is a lot of info here that has been shared. I encourage you to start at the last page, read the wiki, add to the wiki, and share with others. We are all after the same thing here...and that is taking care of our 4 legged family members and their health needs. Of course, since we are on SlickDeals, we want the LOWEST price!!


I have included the original post (below) from May of 2006, for informational and historical purposes only.

*******************************************************************************************************************************
Original post from May, 2006:

Thought I would share with fellow SD'ers where I have been getting my flea and heartworm products for years. This is by far the least expensive place for pet medications. I thought about it when I saw another post for flea treatment. The shipping is back up to $4.99 and they are out of Australia. Great service. I have always been pleased and have referred many of my friends to them. I hope that many of you find it helpful.

I thought I would add in here that you DO NOT NEED an Rx for any of the products sold on this site. (i.e., Heartworm, Revolution, etc...) As always, you should still take your animal in for yearly check ups. And of course, yes, you can always "try" asking your vet to price match. What do you have to lose? (please do not take any offense vets or vet techs....we are just trying to save $$ here.)

Pet Supply Express [petsupplyexpress.com] Have used once so far, no problems (This domain is owned by the same owner of www.petsuppliesnet.com out of the AU. The prices are the same. However, I am unable to use my www.petsuppliesnet.com account with this site. The copyright information for this site is more current than www.petsuppliesnet.com. Is it a Sister Site?)


http://www.deadfleaz.com : Was recommended to us from a Dog Rescue that buys from them. I buy frontline and heartgard from them. Everything has been great. It ships from Australia, so it takes a little longer to get but it is half the price of buying in th US.

petproductsontheweb [petproductsontheweb.com]

Medi-Vet [medi-vet.com] Good prices, reliable, alerts available, fast shipping

DiscountPetDrugs [discountpetdrugs.com]

PetShed [petshed.com] I have been buying Revolution from Petshed for both my dog and cat for about 4 years now. They do ship from Australia but I generally get my order in about 10 days and the customer service is great.
+1, received package in less than a week after they switch the shipper, and you can actually call their number, someone will take care of your business in minutes.
I made a mistake ordering the wrong item, get the refund in the same day. Never a problem in years!

http://www.totalpetsupply.com Been using it for few times, it's the sister site of petshed.com I think, as the shipments were sent from the same Aussie location.

http://www.vidalspets.com/ Heard good things about this company from people on www.fatwallet.com. Ships from Aussie location. Buy from Vidal Pets with confidence! We guarantee all products sold through Vidal Pets are not counterfeit.

Australian Pet Meds http://www.pets-megastore.com.au/ Good prices on generic Heartworm. $6 for shipping (Will not send Advantage to US customers 12/01/11)

Allivet.com [allivet.com] Prices on Interceptor are cheaper than the Aussies sites listed above, US VIPPS-certified pharmacy.

www.fleazapper.com [fleazapper.com] I've been buying Frontline Plus from them for years. Always the lowest price and free S&H, fast shipping, ships from NC (I think). As of 07.19.12 a 6 mo. supply of Frontline Plus for dogs 45-88 lbs is $58.99

================================================================

OTHER INFO/TIPS

For those of you with smaller dogs, a little trick is to buy the doses for larger dogs and split them. I have two small (<20lb) dogs, and I buy the 80lb Frontline plus and Heartgard, then use a needle & syringe to extract about 1/4 of the Frontline per dog each time. I break the Heartgard up into 1/4s before giving it to them. The price of the larger doses is minimally more than the small doses, but gives you 4x as much!

This is a great method for flea/tick prevention! Buy the largest size you can find at Costco or Sams and just portion it out!

->>>> No! see Vet posting below!

This is also true for cat/dog Advantage--they are all 10% active ingredient (imidacloprid), you just use more of the solution on big dogs and less on small dogs or cats (obviously you need to look up the exact dose for your dog/cat). But do NOT use K9 Advantix on cats; it is harmful to cats.

NEW QUESTION: Does breaking up doses of liquid Frontline work? Does the dog kind work on cats? Google wasn't helpful, so maybe not.

NEW QUESTION: Is Advantage for cats (not Advantage II) still available? I've used that in the past and portioned it out based on my cats weight. I recently ran out and now looking to replace it. I see Advantage II all over, but not the original Advantage. I'm thinking of using Comfortis instead.

*******************************************************************************************

If you have more than 1 dog or a large dog here’s the cheapest heartworm treatment. My friend and I have been doing this for years, our breeder told us about this (she’s got 15 or so dogs so it gets really expensive for her to use Heartgard Plus). If you look up the active ingredients in Heartgard they are Ivermectin and Pyrantel. See page 2 here: Heartgard Plus Data Sheet [merial.com] {LINKS ARE DEAD - Looking for replacements}

So if you just buy Ivermectin and Pyrantel (instead of them packaged together in Heartgard) you can just administer the active ingredients to your furry friend at an extremely discounted price.

You can find the Ivermectin here: ValleyVet.com [valleyvet.com]
The rule of thumb for dogs is 1 cc per 100 lbs. You will need a syringe to draw it out of the bottle. So this bottle would last for 50 doses on a 100 lb dog.

--Be careful with the 1cc per 100 lbs. Especially with the 1% solution linked to in this post. This will lead to overdosing for dogs:
http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/farmlife/msg1020122715675.html

You can find the Pyrantel here:ValleyVet.com [valleyvet.com]
The dosage for the Pyrantel is 3-5 mg of active ingredient per pound. This bottle will last for 11 doses for a 100 lb dog.
Just squirt it in their food once a month and you're good to go.[Dead Listing]


Using this method it comes out to about $2.50 per dose for a 100 lb dog. Less for a smaller dog ($1.25 for a 50 lb dog, etc…). I usually just add it to their food once a month and they eat it with their food. There’s plenty of information out there on the internet about these methods so just do some reading if you’re skeptical.

***********************************************************************************************

fyi: if you miss more than one month of any heartworm medication, it is in your animals best interest to have them heartworm tested before going back on the heartworm medication. An unknowingly heartworm positive dog that receives treatment, especial with a product like Interceptor or Sentinel (milbemycin oxime based products), can have a fatal reaction. (This is why it is potentially unsafe for someone to purchase this medication without a Rx from a vet.) Also, not all of these products are guaranteed by the manufacturer if they aren't purchased directly from a veterinarian. Just a word to the wise.



============================

Notes from a licensed veterinarian:

Yes, some of these (flea preventatives) do not require a prescription. Some do/should (heartworm preventatives) by law. Why? Heartworm preventatives work by killing microfilaria (think baby heartworms) that presumably infect your dog/cat monthly. The problem arises when you miss even one dose, or "breakthrough" occurs (microfilaria survive despite monthly "killing" with preventative), and the microfilaria grow to adults - the medicine kills these too, and when they die, the body breaks them down - pieces can lodge into tiny lung capillaries (all blood goes to the lungs to get oxygenated), leading to fatal PTE (pulmonary thromboembolism). So - please don't administer these haphazardly; get your dog tested before giving, and since it takes the body 6 months to produce antibodies, if you miss a dose, continue giving and test in 6 months. The exception (somewhat "safer" preventative) is Heartgard (ivermectin), which works just like the medicine we use to treat dogs infected with heartworms.

Finally - yes, you can buy a large dose of liquid flea preventative and measure out smaller doses for small dogs to save money. However, the active ingredient in most heartworm preventative chewables is NOT evenly distributed/dispersed equally - like many human medications, unless there is a "score" (split for breaking), the active ingredient could be all on one side.

More notes from a licensed vet's son (Not Associated with above)
You shouldn't assume that these websites are cheaper.
My father has people "pricematch" online prices all the time, and then ends up charging them more because the online price was actually higher.
Your vet knows these sites exist. Talk to your vet about them. You might be surprised about what you can work out.

FYI, Costco B&M Pharmacies started carrying prescription and more OTC pet meds. Not sure if it is regional, but its in FL.

Thanks... Was about to post it.. Found it on this thread a few pages back.. Coupon worked perfectly... Brought my total for 6 months of Panoramis aka Trifexis for 4 dogs of 3 different sizes to $257 or $64 per dog... That is $73 cheaper then the lowest price I had found... I just hope I can post in the next couple of weeks that I have receive my order...

Thanks a lot ASDFSDF for all the info...hug
Update: Although I didn't receive a email saying my order had shipped.. I checked my order today and it seems it shipped today... Got a New Zealand tracking number with tomorrows date as the ship date(They are ahead by about a day).... Guess I'll take a look at it next week and see where it's at by then...

Final Update: Although the tracking info hasn't change online since it was shipped... I got a pick up package from post office notice today... Went and picked it up... The lady at the Post Office asked for my ID and took it back with her to go get it... Could be because when I registered to order I only use my partial First name & the first letter of my last name... Bet the Post Office clerk made a photo copy of my ID... She seem like she couldn't understand why I had received a package from New Zealand... Specially with the way the Attention to was written XX. X.

So to recap... I ordered on 04/13/12 & it shipped 04/17/12 & I received it today 05/02/12... Other then the Post Office now being suspicious about my NZ package... Everything turned out perfectly... So it took less then 3 weeks to come in...

Got to say I recommend anybody that want's to save around $20 (In my case I save $80 for 6 months x4 boxes with a expiration date of 06/2013) from the next lowest price online for Trifexis.... http://www.bestvaluepetsupplies.com is a no brainer... Just make sure u pay with PayPal...

I purchased K9 Advantix from budgetpetcare and the applicator tubes do not contain the WARNING Keep out of reach of children. Also the weight is in KG only not in LBS. Also the box lists the address for Bayer as Newberry, Berkshire or Dublin. I thought it would list the address as US. Is this legit or a fake product? The instructions and box are written in English. TIA

I just received my order a couple weeks later. I bought heartgard and frontline for my three big dogs for a year, around $500 would have cost at least $1500 from the vet.

For anyone one the fence on buying Stronghold from an online pet pharma (vs Revolution - both by Pfizer, same formulations)... this is less than scientific, but I have compared both the boxes and all inserts side by side.. and I can't really find any obvious clues as to whether the Stronghold stuff is counterfeit.. the boxes and labeling are sufficiently different, so it's hard to make an exacting study...

so the Stronghold packets are either really high quality counterfeit's.. or the real deal

I'm still not 100% since most of these UK/Australian pet pharmas seem to have a chinese connection

Update: I received my heartguard today from bestvaluepetsupplies. Everything looks good, expiration date 4/2014, packaged well... boxes are sealed and says product was made in Georgia... seems kind of backwards to buy something in Australia that was made in GA

I have 2 individual sealed packages of Promeris for medium sized dogs. (22-55 lbs) I no longer need this size because my dog got larger and I now give him Trifexis. I can ship it to you (at a SD price!!) if it is the size you need. Let me know.

My vet recommended this product at the time when my dog had mange. It worked well to give him flea protection. It has a strong odor though, I warn you.

I used 1800petmeds today and pricematched them to allvetmed.com for AdvantageMutli, and they were able to give me the 5% off coupon for allvetmed.com website.

Save 5% for orders over $100 use code: allvetmedsave-5
Save 7% for orders over $150 use code: allvetmedsave-7

For some reason on the allvetmed website it takes off $ amount and not % amount, but 1800petmeds gave me the %.
