I'm already using Heartguard every 45 days not even sure if I spread it out a few more weeks since it's winter. I havent even use any flea meds that I have yet.
I did, but now that he is bigger (5.4 lbs) I will probably use a whole tube when he goes back on it.

Product Guarantee - 1800PetMeds

Now that may be true. If you look at this link, they will cover the cost of heart worm on selected products, Trifexis not being one of them. I wonder if buying online voids reimbursement from let insurance plans. Dang, maybe $60 extra bucks is worth it.

I don't know what's true! Lol. It's frustrating.

But I also read that most vets will price match. I know my vet in Florida does. I'd call your vet and ask- that would probably be the best bet if they do.

I already asked and they won't. They also would not fax my prescriptions in which the petmeds site says vets can do. Truthfully, I think my vet is playing games. I got written prescriptions and am tying to decide if I should mail them in.

I'm sorry they are being so difficult. If you have a written prescription, you can also take it to any vet to purchase it. It doesn't have to be your vet, although it depends on the vet office's policy whether they will allow you to purchase without a visit. I hope you figure it out!

Jayda, that doesnt make sense about your vet. They would write prescriptions but yet wont fax it??? Can you fax them in yourself (instead of sending them) to petmeds or the vet have to?

Many vets do that. If they write a prescription and you take it somewhere, they have no knowledge or liability. If they directly fax it, they can't claim ignorance. Plus, the inconvenience dissuades many people from mailing the prescription in and they end up buying it at the vet (although you may be able to fax or email it to petmeds now).

I know I can't fax it personally accordingly to the petmeds website but there is no reason why my vet shouldn't be able to do so IMO. I think puplove hits the nail on the head, my vet hopes I will not put up with the inconvienance of mailing the prescriptions in. I am increasingly disturbed by this treatment from my vet.
