Re: [FH] Re: purchasing Atelolol and Enalapril
- VetCentric has a relationship with the vets (it's clear on their webster).
YOUR vet determines the price that they charges and gets money from the
sale; if YOUR vet wants more money, the price goes up. I pay about
$10.00 for 30 atenolol from VetCentric with no shipping costs. Yes, a bit
high, but reasonable. My cardiologist offered to write a prescription,
but said that the Atenolol from VetCentric cuts easily (it does). I don't
consider $10 for 4 months of pills expensive.

Geneva brand. Geneva brand does cut a little neater (I
only need 1/2s) but I have had more problem with pill
spitting out with Geneva so I may go back to Mylan.
The Geneva brand seems like it is a taller pill with
