Prescription Drugs

Are you aware?

When the medicine is dispensed at the Vets office you have incurred the extra cost for the Vet stocking the drug or product and possibly a significant dispensing fee. In some cases the Vet may have purchased the medicine at a much higher price than what might be available today.


1) One of my invoices reflected Griseofulvin 250mg 21ea tablets = $68.25 that works out to $3.25 per tablet! Later I found with a regular prescription I could get Griseofulvin 250mg tablets @ $1.42/tablet.

2) A review of previous purchases from the Vet reflected Malaseb Shampoo = $21.98 that worked out to $2.73 per oz. I found this available @ $1.16/oz

3) I was charged $26.75 @$4.46/oz. for Dermcaps Liquid. However, it could be purchased elsewhere for $2.71/oz.

4) At another Vet one of my Kerries was dispensed eye drops with a label covering the original bottle and we were charged $20.00. After removing the label I found the exact same eye drops were available for $3.65.
