I have 3 dogs and I am on desirability. Its very hard for me to manage all the expanse. I have script for all my pets dog. I just need a refill. If I can save some money, I will defiantly buy my dogs meds online. Please name me some of the Canadian pharmacy.
This is my first post here, please be kind.

God Bless
Thank you.

THIS^^^^.

A friend of mine buys one of his heart meds from a Canadian pharmacy and his doctor knows it and is good with it.

If it was me, I would do the same, for me or my pets, without worry.

I would think that a search on Google for "reviews of ............ in Canada" will give you answers as to the quality of the products and the side effects, etc.

Funny, I used to buy medication for my horse years ago that was cheaper in the states than in Canada. I guess it all depends on what medication it is.

Yes, Gouliganna. In the US, 3 months supply of Nexgard cost me around 60 USD + Vet fees. If I buy from Canada online pharmacies, it will cost me 49 USD without any vet fees and with free shipping. So If I shop wisely I can easily save more then 50 USD yearly on fleas and ticks treatment on my single pet dog.

Medication directly from a Canadian pharmacy will be perfectly fine. But as to ordering from a mystery website, I have no idea. They might be trustworthy, they might not.

Have you tried calling a pharmacy directly and asking about prices? If it is medication for animals, try calling a Canadian livestock supply store and see if they carry it.

My life experience is that medication directly from the vet's office is the most expensive place to buy medication for pets. It's worth the time to do some price shopping.

Pharmaceuticals must come from a reliable and trusted source. You can't tell by looking at them whether or not they are good. You often can't tell even by giving them whether or not they are good.

If I order a chocolate bar or a t-shirt from a new soure, I can tell instantly, as soon as it arrives, whether or not the product is good and whether or not I can continue to order from that company. Pills, not so much. If they look right doesn't guarantee that they are right. Medication is often counterfeited.
