Well done Pet Drugs Online.
Excellent service, easy to order n quick to deliver plus price very competitive, what's not to like?
Very good service. Huge choice of products and I found the one I need for my cats at an unbeatable price. Very pleased.
After our previous drug supplier stopped stocking what we needed I found "Pet Drugs Online". All I can say is I wished I'd found them first as the service is outstanding and simple to place your order and it's brilliant value to boot.
