Can you afford NOT to buy petmeds online?

Can you afford NOT to buy petmeds online?

My rescue dog Toffi needs long-term medication, and I've been buying this from the vet for nearly six months now. Every time we go in Toffi gets a big fuss, treats and a weight check. I pick up her meds and get a bill for just over £160. Toffi loves the surgery and I feel secure knowing that the medication I'm buying is the proper stuff and that I can always ask a vet for free advice if something doesn't seem quite right. If that means paying a bit more for the prescription then that's OK because I absolutely want the best for my pooch.

And then I found out that it's possible to buy exactly the same prescription online for literally half the price. Oh really? And then I began to wonder. Would the vet ever speak to me again if I asked for Toffi's prescription to buy online? What if the prescription needed to be changed? Toffi is my first dog and I don't want to take any risks with her health. She hasn't had the best start in life as it is. On the other hand, a saving of £80 each time adds up to a month's rent each year.

So I asked the vet, who was totally unsurprised and recommended Viovet as a reliable online store for pet medicine. Toffi still goes along to the surgery for weight checks, still gets her fuss, and still gets the treats. So I'm sharing the tip:  Viovet
