    i know that buying certain items on line is a lot cheaper than going to the vets.

    as i plan to get a better deal for flea and worm treatment on line - but obvioulsy from a reliable source!

    so i would really appreciate if someone could give me a link that is reliable. :)

    i have obvioulsy searched on line - but i'm always worried about being conned lol

    Hi there...here's a couple of links to online vet pharmacies. I use these all the time to get my worming and flea treatment. They do liquid solutions too..and they are cheaper than most vets. Hope this helps.

    I heard that some of these are Toxxic - All I know is, it was a flea treatment but I am not sure what type it was.

    If you use an out of date flea spray it can be toxic and some cats react badly to it but the reputable ones such as front line are efficient and are sold by vets. They were prescription only but I understand you can buy them online now. No point in using Bob Martens products, they do nothing and could give an adverse reaction.

    Ive only heard of toxicity poisoning when people have not read instructions and used the flea/worm treatment incorrectly. IE, using it on an animal thats too young, or using dog flea stuff on cats.

    Otherwise what you buy online is the same as in the vets/petshop. I used to get my dogs prescription only heart meds from online.

    I mainly use Pet Medication, Pet Food, Pet Meds, Discount Pet Medication - VioVet - VioVet for all mine - both for my cats and dog.

    They have always been very fast delivery, reliable and cheaper for the products I buy than other online places I looked (and loads cheaper than the vets, especially if you have a number of pets).

    It depends what you want to buy though, take a look at the recommended sites on this thread and compare the prices of what you want. Some can do certain brands for cheaper (i.e. Stronghold vs Frontline or Milbemax Vs Drontal etc).
