Help me find cheap flea medicine!

Cheapest online source for Advantage Multi or Frontline Feline. And yes, I do have a prescription from my vet.

Anyone know of the best place to buy these? 1-800-PetMeds seemed a bit pricey to me.

Follow up questions:

My vet recommended the Advantage Multi for my cats, but I'm wondering if regular Advantage would be okay, b/c it's so much cheaper.

Is the Advantage you can buy off Amazon without a prescription legit?

I have gotten good deals by going to and signing up for their email newsletter. I wait till it has an appropriate coupon or sales offer. And you don't need a prescription for advantage or frontline anymore. Not for a long time has that been necessary. Most vets won't tell you that. (Uh, I'm assuming you're in the US.)

You can find it pretty cheap on Ebay, and I haven't had any issue with "fake" products. Usually it is labeled for sale in Australia, but it is the same product, same strength, etc.

And yes, the Advantage on Amazon is legit.

I second, I've been ordering from them for years without any problems.

Keep in mind that if it's on eBay for an astoundingly low price, there's a good chance that it's because the they are nearing the expiration date.
