I use 1-800-pet meds. It’s pretty easy, stuff always goes on sale and the vet can authorize the prescription online without a visit to the office.

I don’t have experience, but I’ve constantly heard of 1800petmeds

I’ve used http://www.1800petmeds.com/ for flea preventive and it’s always been authentic. I checked out a couple of other sites, but they all looked kind of sketchy so I didn’t order.

Try walmart. Our dog needed a bunch of meds to clear up an ear infection and when I filled the script at walmart it was $4. Then they also told me I can use my insurance to get her meds.

Some Targets do pet meds I’ve heard, and some pet meds are are the same human meds. Leukeran looks like it’s used for humans, so you may be able to get your vet to give you a script to fill at a standard pharmacy. Just be sure to call around and get pricing, as from what I read it looks like it is used as a chemo drug. Let me tell you, without insurance, some of those can be pretty expensive. I’m on Zofran myself, which is used in chemo to help nausea/vomitting and even my insurance doesn’t want to cover it.

Don’t forget about Costco. You don’t have to be a member to use the pharmacy from what I’ve heard, and their prices were always cheaper than Walmart.

Oh – see if any pharmacies have a new customer program. For example, Harris Teeter here offers $20 for each new prescription filled/refilled during a period of time (like 2-3 months). Totally helps out.

I use Drs. Foster & Smith for my standard dog needs, but not sure they do things like this..

@CorgiTales:  Thankfully mine is just temporary, but they wanted $80 to fill a 10 day prescription (which half the day doesn’t last that long as I have to adjust the dose daily). Totally sucks!

Call several pharamcies though. Get your prices. You may find one has a better deal for a larger supply, like 2-3 month.
