Looking for heartgard

Postby cbr117 » Sun Jul 12, 2009 11:32 am

I was searching the internet looking for a better price for heargard than 1800petmeds offers. I found this website... http://www.drsfostersmith.com. Has anyone heard of it? Is it reputable?

I've bought many things from Dr fosters and Smith. They've been around for quite a while and I can;t think of a reason they would not be considered reputable.

Is there a reason you aren't geting the heartgard from your vet. This season my vet started carrying a generic heartgard (i forget the name off the top of my head) and it was cheaper than the heartgard.

Dr Fosters and Smith are as reliable as they get. They're a lot cheaper than my vet for many drugs, and she's always happy to deal with them for filling prescriptions (they fax her, she faxes back the prescription). I have found KV vet supply to be a little faster, but that could be pure coincidence.

I agree with both statments
Drs Foster and Smith are VERY reputable and
yes KV Vet Supply is faster

FYI- if you purchase your Heartgard from a vet Merril backs up their product. If (god forbid) your pet ever contracts heartworms or gets a parasite (rounds, hooks) the company will pay for treatment. They do not back their product if bought from one of the mail order companies.

At the clinic I work at we price-match the on-line companies, ask your vet if they will do the same!

Look into the price matching thing. Sugar's vet, which happens to be a VCA, does price matching.

Look at Costco's prices. I know they are about 5 bucks cheaper than DFS on Frontline Plus, so they might be cheaper on the heartguard too.

Our vet said he stopped carrying heartgard.

That's weird! But check out Interceptor if he carries that line. It's just as good IMO. If I were to go that route, use Interceptor and Frontline. Sentinel doesn't do ticks and is only a flea "birth control"

The generic is Tri-Heart Plus. It's distributed by Schering-Plough.

I work at a vet's office, too and we also price match for HW preventatives with PetMeds and DrFostersSmith.
