I tried looking to see if anyone has posted this question or not and couldnt find it.
Anyway, does anyone know of a good source to get flea/tick med and heartworm med? I feel I am paying too much for this every month at the vet. I have tried to research it on the internet, but there is just too many links to follow. I dont know if I should be looking into a combo med, which is what I use now (has both flea/tick and heartworm medication) or be looking for them individually.
If you have any ideas I would love to hear them! Thanks in advance!

I think 1800PetMeds is the one I always see advertised for lower prices. Usually pet meds need doctor approval or prescriptions so I am not sure how this would work.

You’re right! The meds are insanely expensive! You can use 1-800 Pet Meds, but you’re gonna end up paying about the same because you same about $10-$15, but you end up paying that in shipping 🙁 You’re best bet is to find a friend that works at a Vet’s office. 🙂 I have a friend that works at a Vet’s office & she sells the meds to me for the price that they pay – which is HALF the price that we get charged!!!

Thanks for all the help everyone. The 1800petmeds is about what I pay now. I will continue looking in the meantime and let you know if I find anything else. 🙂 Thanks again!

That’s a problem here, too; we’re having the worst flea infestation in decades. In desparation i checked eBay; there are a few sellers who sell the Advantage and Frontline in ‘kits’; In it are 3 vials of the stuff for the largest dog; it’s good for both cats and dogs; read that a nonessential ingredient in cat’s formula is higher than in dogs. The liquid, which we’d dot on the back of our pets, is applied at a rate smaller than the vials; info is available per seller. Here’s where i got my 1st batch which is in the mail now: FRONTLINE PLUS FLEA CONTROL FOR DOGS & CATS – LARGE KIT – eBay . The seller sells both brands altho that pg only lists Frontline. Read what the sellers do to re-portion the dosage amounts and how much their kit(s) would save you. Don’t just look in one spot; research to see if you can find it cheaper elsewhere… then let us know :o) HTH
