    It will probably depend on the medication your vet prescribes. Sonny was on one Vetmedin tablet twice a day and the diuretic Lasix one and half tablets twice a day. I've dug out a Vets bill from November last year and for 50 Vetmedin tabs we were billed 15 and for the Lasix 84 pills were just under 25. As Sonny was on meds for a couple of years our Vet was really good and gave us a 15% discount if we bulk bought.

    Hope this helps!

    Fortekor costs considerably more however -- in Ireland, about a euro per tablet -- so gets expensive very quickly.

    Jasper is on Fortekor tablets 1 per day and they cost 1.00 per tablet, he is insured so I still get his meds from the vet as I would have to pay to take the prescription away from them. It does work out expensive - we get 2 or 3 months supply at a time depending on when the vet wants to review him again - never longer than 3 months, then you have the cost of the consultation on top.

    I used to pay 20 for 28x 2.5mg Fortekor and 35 for 2x 5mg from the vets. However by law they have to let you have a six month prescription if you request one for a small fee. I pay 10 for mine and then buy 6 months worth online. 2.5mg costs 10.50 for 28 and 5mg costs 20.50 for 28 which is a good saving as long as you can afford to pay for 6 months worth upfront.
