does it take, on average, to receive the product? i just ordered some from http://www.vetproductsdirect.com.au/usacad/ and was wondering when to expect the package. Also, they said for US residents a vet Rx was needed, but didn't say anything for Canadian residents, this is correct info or did i miss something? merci mademoiselle! :)

I don't remember how long it took, but it was faster than I had expected. :o As for the Rx, last year I emailed them to be sure and they said that no, we don't need one from Canada. :thumbs up

I'll have to bookmark that site (I've already bought his summer supply)... That's much cheaper than my vet, and after getting fleas somewhere in our travels around Christmas time, I'm erring on the side of caution and protecting the dog year round.

I just ordered from them. The price is almost half of what I would have paid from the vet.

I ordered 3 brown heartgards (for the big dags), and one blue (for my dad's little guy), and my shipping was $6.75 US. Not too bad!:) I ordered them Monday, so we'll see when they arrive...:fingerscr

Prin

Yep. My heartgard is $64 from the vet and it's like $30 something from there. Plus with our dollar being higher now, it's very close.;)

Never thought about..
ANd assumed the vet wouldn't write me a prescription..
First year I've had to buy it (roomie did last yr) so I never thought about choice.

For a lot of them you don't need a prescription from Canada.;)

Had no clue till it came up here..

What do your vets say about it.. you go for hw testing and say see ya, or?

Yeah, pretty much. I've been going to him since I was 10ish, so I know him pretty well. He knows I'm a starving student, so he doesn't mind too much (I hope). My dad is worried though because this is the first time I bought him some too and he has no idea what to tell the vet... :D I said to say he still had some left from last year (which he does) or that I bought him some.

If my vet is as good as I think he is, he will be happy that we're giving them the pills, and stick to making his money off all the xrays and blood tests we ask for.;)

So my order from http://www.vetproductsdirect.com.au/ was dispatched on May 24th, when should I expect to receive the package? Prin, have you received anything yet from them? i remember we ordered at about the same time... just wondering how long it takes, and if the package might be stuck at customs or something :eek:

Prin

Thanks Prin :)

How are they? I have issues with online ordering, especially pet meds, but since other doggy devotees trust them, I tried it out.

They're fine. No français on the package because they're from Australia, but otherwise fine. Mine expire in Aug 07.:)
