As many of you know, the pharmacies that operate in PetsMed and Chewie are owned by the same flea bitten, ragtag group of clowns based in Florida that have been tampering with written prescriptions and abusing “pet” quality PHARMACY Law for more than a decade. And as you know I do not allow my credentials to be used by that group of clowns for obvious legal reasons. In the hands of some teenage after schooler sweeping the floor, or some impaired pharmacist rummaging around in the spiral notebooks they use for records, my DEA license could get me in a lot of trouble prescribing controlled substances for the pharmacists wife, TravaShankar KakaPrahbia who got their license in Delhi India, last month. Please understand, I am not talk picking on pharmacists from India, I’m just saying this isn’t some crack team from Tufts University and medical College of Georgia medical College of Georgia.
So I have been recommending human pharmacy’s! At least if human pharmacies mess up and kill a pet, there’s a penalty. FDA doesn’t particularly care about dogs and cats, so as long as these online pharmacy stay out of the human side, they are not subject to much in the way of regulation.
I always figured that if a pharmacy was competent and regulated enough to handle human drugs, they would be safe places to get animal drugs, right? Nope.
Walmart pharmacy proposes to sell pet drugs; which is fine with me, except they farmed the service out to some little hole in the wall company with a couple of clowns sitting around filling prescriptions out of cardboard boxes.
I would’ve thought that Walmart cared enough about the pet owning public to actually put their high-quality human pharmacists, in a face-to-face environment where the safety of the animal came first. But now, it’s been dumped off on a little ragtag group of so-called pharmacists in a little hole in the wall in Florida, not even licensed in the state of Georgia.
OK, Walmart. “They’re just dogs, what do you care?“
I wanted a human pharmacy to step up and do it right. It’s time that these little, rinky-dink guys selling boxes of European heartworm pills out of the trunks of cars posing as animal pharmacies got put out of business.
Is that so much to ask?

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
