The economic recession has had far reaching effects for people, and their health care, but in these bleak economic times it's often our four legged friends getting overlooked. Pet owners nationwide have been struggling with the increasing cost of pet medications. Many municipalities have ordinances for mandatory pet medication, and pet owners are starting to feel the pinch of combined tick, flea, heart worm and other immunizations. Instead of letting their dogs and cats go without, crafty pet owners are turning to the internet for medications. Once the domain of 800 numbers and vets, several sites have sprung up to fill the void of discount pet medications. Neighbors have started to form groups to buy medication together and save on shipping. With the rising cost of gas, these groups have started to expand beyond pet supplies and are now including such things groceries and cars.
Beyond pet medications, owners are finding their combined buying power is something they can use for even basic pet necessities. Capitalizing on the "flash mob" effect now popular on the internet, site owners are no longer surprised to see thirty leashes and fifty chew toys shipping to the same address. Like other trends in the pet world many people are discovering they can be thrifty at the dog park, or on walks with other owners. The age of the internet has brought about this "viral" spread of information to prevent just such a thing from happening to your dog.
One hot seller called "Frontline" retails for over $44.00 with popular discount 1-800 numbers, but many pet owners are finding this popular and helpful pet medication online for under $30.00 online. The same goes for medications like Advantix, a popular heart worm medication; happy pet owners are buying this online for over 30% off. While many people worry about the legitimacy of buying pet supplies online, you can trust that the brand name medications will be backed by their manufacturer to adhere to the most stringent of quality specifications.
