I'm wary about buying worming tablets etc online but I noticed the Internet Pharmacy Logo on the Medicanimal website and this seems to check out with the General Pharmaceutical councils website....anyone know anything about this? Is it safe?

is there a phone number or email details? If there is phone no I'd ring and just ask questions etc.

LOL what like "is this the genuine product or are you fraudsters" dont think that will work will it.

I guess I need to read up on who exactly the General Pharmaceutical Council are...if they are genuine then they have issued Medicanimal with a licence so it should be OK shouldnt it?

OK - NHS & BMJ have mentioned them so I guess its OK to buy from them.

Thats a result their Drontal plus is £1.66 a tablet, the cheapest I have found elsewhere was Day Lewis £7.64 for 2....the difference in price made me nervous (and lets not talk about what the vet charges for it!)

It looks to be ok

I meant ok to buy from Medicanimal as they are approved by the GPC.

The general pharmaceutical council are the regulatory authority for pharmacists and pharmacies. You can do a premises search on their website to confirm if the pharmacy is registered with them.

Thanks - that makes the worming/de-fleaing process a lot less costly than going into the vets (or even the chemist)

I need to order more food so I will kill 2 birds with one stone!
