This is my first experience and I have been more than pleased! My elderly dog is on a chronic medication, and I plan to be a loyal customer with PetFoodDirect. Not only was I able to get my dog's prescription at a terrific price, it was done from the convenience of my own home computer. [...] I feel lucky to know about such a great company. Thank you!

Slo handling & delivery; unnamed generic

Rx label did not give product manufacturer, so undesired generic substitution was possible. Pills were not identifiable. I am unable to verify what product I am commenting upon.

      I use this product 2x per day, but my Vet charges way too much money for these tablets. I love this company cuz they send me the "full year prescription" in one bottle! I don't have to keep getting refills every three months like other pet companies offer, by far this is the best service and a one time prescription filled for the entire year!
