    Online pet medication 30th Aug 17 at 6:19 AM
    Hi everyone

    My old furry purrball has just been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. He's been very unwell but has responded to his first course of medication, put on some weight and seems better overall. I'm so glad.

    He will need medication now for the rest of his days and my vet costs a fortune. I'm still paying down debt and need to save every penny I can. However, getting the right meds is a serious business.

    Can anyone recommend an online pet meds pharmacist? I have a prescription so am good to go, I'm just worried about it and thought a personal recommendation from someone on here would be a huge help.

    Many thanks lovely people.

    I've used vetuk.co.uk a couple of times with no problems (except for getting the prescription from my vet in the first place!).

    VetMedic.- I haven't used for prescription drugs but for loads of other things-
    (and I have also met and spoken to the owners at Crufts etc.)
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    Thanks everyone for your helpful replies. I've got it all sorted now and the furry purrball is very happy and healthy.

    I used Animed as they were cheapest for the drugs I needed (and once had a beat any price policy) and would take an emailed prescription, so postal losses. However, there is a huge difference in drug prices with some doing free postage ,some only over a fixe cost and other charging all the time.


    The best thing to do is Google for you drugs and buy where it works out cheaper, inclusive of any P&P.
