Keep Your Fur Babies Healthy For Less

I remember the first time we took Pargo to the vet. It was his first puppy exam - the nice doctor chatted with us while checked Pargo's eyes and ears. I remember her asking if we wanted to buy heartworm and flea medicine.

Being new dog owners, Luke and I innocently nodded yes. We wanted our puppy to be healthy!

Shortly, we found ourselves in front of the cash register, paying a $200 vet bill. Ouch.

I looked at the bill more carefully when I got home and found out that the heartworm medicine was $50 and flea medicine was more than $80! I soon realized that I probably could've bought the medicines online for half the cost.

I was almost right. I could've gotten them for at least a 30% discount.

I chalked up to lesson learned and never bought anything from the vet again.

Today I found a $20 off coupon for http://www.1800petmeds.com/. Using "creative" ordering, I got a year supply of heartworm medicine for less than $20 shipped. That's a 60% saving from the $50 I paid years prior!

The coupon code is 420RX. I don't know when it expires so take advantage of it now. It appears that the coupon is only good for medications, though. Read the entire thread here.

  2. Maybe. I will look into it if we get Pesto. I heard that it's only worth it for the first year when they need a lot of puppy shots.
