"In my dealings with Pet Prescription I have never experienced any difficulties whatsoever and delivery has always been on or ahead of promised date.
Pricing is competitive and savings on prescription drugs are really good.
The only downside is the ever increasing prescription charges being made by the veterinary practises which all to frequently limit the savings made. In my own experience charges have increased per item from £7 t0 £12 over a period of eighteen months."/ (Posted on
