I have a couple of questions I'd like some help with, if that's ok ...
Lucy has been taking meds now for some time and as her insurance is beginning to run out we've looked into buying the meds online.
We can get 4 of the 5 drugs online, but we've hit a snag with Spironolactone, which she gets 25mg of, twice a day. I can only get it on a human site and although Lucy has been on it now for about 18 months (the human version, prescribed by the vet), the vet advises me that I should only get the animal version, which is Prilactone or Aldactone.
Prilactone comes in 10/40/80mg tablets, so she'd need either 2 and a half 10mg tablets twice a day, or half of a 40, and half of a 10, twice a day. It's much more expensive than the Spironolactone that she was getting from the vet. I can't find the Aldactone anywhere.
We're saving about 60% going online for her drugs, so it's very definitely worthwhile.
So ... here are the questions ... do we buy Spironolactone (which comes in 25mg tablets) for humans, which we can get? Does it really make any difference? (I'm kind of sceptical because she's had the human version via the vet all this time and it's been fine). Or do we suck up the extra cost (and inconvenience of having to make up a 25mg dose from 10mg and 40mg tablets) and buy Prilactone?
Oh one final question... the cheapest seemed to be www.petdrugsonline.co.uk, any thoughts or experiences?
