Question Where do you buy your pet meds?

Where do you buy your pet meds? I've been just buying from our vet, but Roscoe is close to adult size now, so it's time to buy several months at a time and start saving a little money. I've used 1-800-pet-meds in the past. Are they still good value and quality? Heartworm meds will be expensive no matter what, but I want to save where I can without compromising on quality and Roscoe's health.

TIA

I haven't had to buy medications yet :knock on wood:, but have heard that most pet medications are available at regular drug stores for half to 1/3 of the cost. You might want to check there first.

It is kind of a weird place but I buy my dogs meds at Costco. I find they usually have the cheapest. The don't have a huge variety but they have what I need.

I usually get mine from Foster & Smith, but recently found chewy.com for the glucosamine we use - they were a lot cheaper.

This is where I got Trucker's Prozac but it was still fairly expensive. I never thought to look for Heartworm or Flea/Tick medications.

I so miss Costco! We only have Sam's in this area, but I'll check with them.
