hi peeps, just a heads up for those of you that need regular medicine for your pet when the insurance doesn't cover it.
my dog is diabetic, the vet charges me 45 for a phial of insulin, which lasts for 2 weeks. i discovered that if i pay for a prescription (12.50), i can get the identical item online for 17.69.
whatsmore, i can use the same prescription for 6 repeats!
so i am now paying about 120 where it would've been 270.
i hope this helps someone out there


cos i'm that kinda guy...

A further bit of advice on Vets fees is that Animal Trust have now opened in Ellesmere Port, consultations are free and treatment is cheaper than many others because they are a non-profit organisation.

I took your advice egg & use that site for Misty's insulin & syringes & deffo half the price.My vet said once the diabetes was under control to buy off the internet.My last prescription was 8,comes to 28n in all as she has a health check.I get 9 bottles of insulin,last lot in September & on my 2nd to last bottle now.That costs me 169 including vat & delivery as it has to come refridgerated.if I got it from the vet it would cost 338.If I have any problems I just phone & get it sorted.

Just to say they do other stuff as well that you don't need prescriptions for.
