    Default Best source of Meds and supplements

    Just wondering where everyone gets meds like heartwormer or supplements like glucosamine. I recently started one of my dogs on a regular supplement for the joints. The vet wanted $68 for 180 tablets. pretty much the same at petsmart or Wal mart. Found the exact same thing on Amazon.com for $28.50.

    Steve, I buy Scotty's G/C at Costco. I used to buy Cosamine (which is human equivalent of Cosequin) for about $60/bottle. Last time, I bought Schiff made G/C supplement with MSM for around $20 bottle also at Costco. I have not noticed any decrease in Scotty's mobility with a different brand of G/C.

    200 tablets in the bottle. I give him 2 tables/day, so a bottle lasts us about 3 months.

    Also check on perscription drug prices at Wal Mart and Target. I got a perscription for predizone for $4.00 at Wal Mart.Publix has recently lowered prices on antibiotics. Get your vet to write you a perscription to take to Wal Mart, Target or Publix for them to fill.

    I have been using www.discountpetdrugs.com They have free shipping for orders over $100 and the prices are pretty good. I buy Synovi G powder, 12 packs of interceptor and 12 packs of frontline spray. I have one dog missing cartilage in one knee and the Synovi G makes a huge difference in her comfort and use of the leg. Dr. Sherman recommended it and it works. Sometimes Amazon has really good prices on dog drugs, so I check there first.
