Shopping at 1800PetMeds?

Review of the popular online pet pharmacy and pet supplies store

Who is 1800PetMeds?

1800PetMeds is a leading nationwide pet pharmacy based in Florida. They sell prescription and non-prescription pet medications, and health and nutritional supplements for cats and dogs.

Cat Product Selection

This is a complete pet pharmacy carrying prescription and non-prescription medications, as well as vaccines. They also carry a small selection of pet treats, pet gifts, and pet accessories.

This online pet pharmacy has pictures of their entire stock of pet supplies and pet medications along with thorough and helpful descriptions of most pet products.

This is probably the best place to get conventional flea medication (Advantage, Program, Frontline) on the internet. They have good prices and approved medication.

Compare to natural flea control products at Only Natural Pet if you're considering natural remedies for fleas or other cat health issues.


Prices for pet medications are much cheaper than regular pet supply stores and comparable to other pet pharmacies. Shipping costs are comparatively low.

They offer volume discounts on their pet medications and have a large selection of daily specials.

Navigation Ease

Rufus the Healthy Cat

This site has a pretty straight-forward navigation and linking structure, so it's easy enough to find your way around.

The search box on every page is helpful, but it has a tendency to turn up additional products besides those you searched for (although the products are similar).

The shopping cart navigation is a little awkward, but there is a "view cart" button on every page so you can check on your order.

Ordering Process

1800PetMeds is a VeriSign Secure Site, meaning that you can trust your confidential credit card information is being processed on a secure server and, therefore, safe. They guarantee "that every online transaction you make will be 100% safe. This means you pay nothing if unauthorized charges are made to your card as a result of shopping at our online store."

The ordering process is standard and straight-forward. No matter what page you're on, you can always click a button to view your shopping cart.

Shipping and Handling

Shipping costs are among the lowest for pet pharmacies and pet supply stores, generally. Orders over $49 receive free shipping.

Standard shipping will take 5 to 7 days. You can pay extra for priority shipping.

Your exact shipping cost is displayed on the final ordering page before you confirm your order. This allows you to see what your true total will be.


This online pet store guarantees "you'll get the same exact medications prescribed by your veterinarian, all fully approved for sale and use in the United States."

They further guarantee "your complete satisfaction or your money back."

Payment Options

MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover. They will also accept payment by check, but you must call their toll-free number to place your order when paying by check.

Contact Information

1800PetMeds provides you information so that you can contact them by phone, fax, email, or snail mail with any questions you may have about  your pet supplies order.

Privacy Policy

This online pet pharmacy has a privacy policy that outlines what they will and will not do with information collected about you.

They require you to "opt-in" if you want to receive any solicitations from them. This is an added plus as most online stores require you to "opt-out."

Extra Features

1800PetMeds has several articles on dog and cat health. Although the articles recommend products that they have for sale on their website (surprise!), they are informative articles and not just sales pitches.

They also have a very useful vet directory. Just put in your zip code to find veterinarians in your area.
