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.)
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

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.

+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.

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

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.

I just paid a little over $92 for a 12 month supply of Frontline Plus (10-20kg) from vidalpets! I usually pricematch to 1800petmeds (using deadfleaz's prices), but the 10% off coupon made me go and order from vidalpets.

Okay, I need help, I just took my puppy to the vet, and am totally confused by the info on Frontline plus and Heardgard. I am told that the companies do not sell to any online companies, and are very likely outdated or stored in tempertures not conducive to healthy meds. Is it safe to buy from some of the companies I see advertised such as Dearfleaz etc??? This is so new to me, I havent had a puppy for many years. Thanks for any help given.

if you want, you can always pricematch it to 1800petmeds. I've done it twice. I just call them, say I want to pricematch to deadfleaz. They ask for deadfleaz prices (including shipping), then you give billing and shipping info, and you are good to go!

I always get the heartworm med from my vet since they have it for cheaper than any online store I've found. Plus, heartworm is much more dangerous than fleas and ticks, so I feel better getting the heartworm meds from my vet.

I used this sight in the past and found them cheaper than super petz and pet smart for my dogs needs. I haven't used them in just over a year since we put our dog down. They used to have flat rate shipping of $5.00 and I just looked to see it has went up to $7.00. I used to order with a friend and we split the cost and shipping. Some products can be bought in multiples of 6 and 12 which make them cheaper. I was buying pill pockets from this site and they came in the same exact package as the vet, super pets and pet smart has. I hope this is of use to someone.

Thanks for the thread. I read through a bunch and could not find a good deal on Sentinel. Ended up calling 1800petmeds (where I usually buy from) and their price was the same petcarerx so I just went with 1800petmeds.

If anyone finds a great deal on Sentinel, I would love to know about it.

Cheapest heartworm prevention, Ivermectin injection. Measure how much your dog needs, squeeze it on some tuna fish and you are done. 1 bottle cost about $40 and last 1.5 years for 4 dogs.

Quick question. I bought the Advantage flea killer treatment off of Amazon this week before seeing this post and just wanted to clarify something.

#1 - The box was opened and had a knitted mouse w/bell on it which I thought was a bit strange.

# 2 - Mine is written in English, but the back has a label that says that it was made in Germany. The box also says this.

Everything else appears to be legite, the seller had great reviews and it has 9.1% on the active ingredient. I just really want to make sure that I'm giving him the legit stuff and not a knock off that could harm him.

Anyone that can verify the "made in Germany" comment would be appreciated. Thanks!
