My vet wrote me a prescription for Sentinel but I have no idea where to fill it. I know there are online options but how do I know which ones are trushworthy? I've always gotten Yoda's meds directly from my vet, so I'm not sure how to go about this. Does anyone have suggestions?

I get "Mischiefs" from a company called "Vetmedic". I'm in the UK but when I was looking for a reputable company, I Googled "veterinary prescription dispensers". It may work for the USA.  Perhaps you could ask other pet owners who may have used a pharmacy. 

This link may be of help as to what to look out for when buying online.

I trust Drs. Foster and Smith online.  They are easy to work with and you can even call and talk to their pharmacist if you need to.

They're on the up-and-up.

I would just call around to the vets in your area.  Someone will have it in stock and they will all be happy to sell it to you.  If you have time to wait, I also like Drs. Foster and Smith.

I have also used Drs. Foster and Smith, online. Excellent prices and great service. I trust them, as well.

I've ordered his sentinel from 1-800-pet meds but now I'm worried. I've read some things about them and I don't know if they're a reputable company. Does anyone have experience with them?

Hmm... I don't see that anyone mentioned them.  Maybe next time, do a bit more research?

1-800petmeds has been known to deal in "grey market" drugs. That's drugs made for sale in other countries, imported back to the US, where that particular formulation isn't the one approved.

They also get a lot of their supply, most of it, from vets who "over-order" and sell their excess to 1-800petmeds. The problem with this is two-fold. First, it increases your risk that the product will be past its expiration date. Second, because the manufacturers don't sell to 1-800petmeds, you are not protected by the manufacturer's guarantee.

Cancel the order, and order from Drs. Foster and Smith. Seriously.
