over the counter cat medication
I bought some worm medication at walmart. Then I heard on TV this morning that it is better to get it from the vet because you don't know if its been stored properly etc... The worm medication at the vet is $10 and it was $5 at walmart. Do you approve of medication bought at the store rather than the vet?

well it's not really a case of whether or not I approve. it is really more to do with effectiveness.
When I first got my cat I started to buy flea and worm treatments from the local store, but she still got fleas and when I took her to the vets he told me that a lot of these kinds of treatments are really effective (especially the flea ones) It was all to do with what they were made of etc. So now I only buy from the vet the monthly spot on treatments for fleas which also protects against worms too.
So I can't really say how good the store bought ones are now as I have not used them for many years. But I would say this, you get what you pay for in many cases and does cheap also mean not as good in this case?
i wouldn't say they were dangerous, just maybe not as effective.
