I was wondering if anybody can direct me to a good website to get frontline or advantax (sp???). The vets around here charge an arm and a leg and I know I can get it at a better price online. Thanks!

Go to a reputable site, and if they do not require a prescription from your vet, then stay away. For instance, Drs Foster and Smith require that you either mail them the original prescription, have the vet's office fax it, or call it in, just like a human pharmacy. Any site that does not do this might not be legit. Any site that offers to have their veterinarians diagnose and prescribe over the internet might not be legit, same goes for people medications.
