    GREAT PRODUCT GREAT PRICE

    By MEDICATIOIN on May 4, 2021

    EVERYTHING I GOT WAS ON POINT AND FOR A REALLY REALLY GREAT PRICE. THE ONLY THING I WOULD ASK BEFORE ORDERING MEDICATIONS FOR YOUR PET...CAN YOUR PET AFFORD TO WAIT? IT TOOK SEVERAL DAYS FOR THE MEDICATION TO GET HERE AND THAT WAS OK BECAUSE IT WAS NOT NEEDED IMMEDIATELY. BUT KEEP THAT IN MIND WHEN YOU ORDERED.
