Hi, it's most probably been put on here before but I just wanted to highlight how much cheaper prescribed medicines by the vets are on the internet. I was shocked by the difference in price.
My dog has to have eye ointment for the rest off his life for dry eye. The stuff he needs my vet charges £58 for. On the internet I found the same ointment for £26. I was able to have a prescription from my vets for 3 months worth (2 tubes) for which I had the privilege of being charged £11 for. Still by doing this I saved about £50.
I am aware some people have pets put to sleep as they cannot afford the treatment which is sad when it can be purchased so much more cheaply and not even informed about it.
I have just priced up metacam (quite a common anti inflammatory medicine) for my other dog and this works out to be about £20 cheaper online.
Hopefully this well help people as even though I had been told before it was cheaper to purchase online I did not realise by how much, and how easy it was to do it.
