Do you buy your meds at the vet or online?

Hi everyone. I'm wondering if most of you purchase your pet medicines directly from your vet or from an online pharmacy (like 1800petmeds.com or chewy.com)?

The online stores seem to have slightly better prices than my vet, but it still seems easier and safer to stick with my vet. I have to go to them anyway for the checkup and sometimes for the prescription in the first place. Also they're the expert who tells me how to administer the medicine, so it seems better to just buy it from them.

Have any of you gone the online route and not looked back? Is it easy to get prescriptions sent to the websites?

Also, does your vet ever care or get upset?

Thank you!!!

The Vet for sure! Some vets will price match the online pharmacy prices too.
