Internet Medications

How do you feel about buying internet medications, like heartworm or flea medication?

I think you need to be REALLY careful. I have heard very bad stories about internet (and big box store) pet meds. From what I've read, and also what I've been told by friends who are vets, these places often purchase their supplies from "discount" suppliers, (which is how they can sell them cheap) who get the meds from suspect sources. Often the meds will LOOK just like the brand name stuff, but be Chinese knock-offs without any of the quality control we have in this country. The meds can be much stronger than they should be, not strong enough, or be contaminated.

Dogs have died.

I know some people do it for years and get lucky. For my animals, I just won't take the chance.
