    As everyone knows in the US, prescription drugs are cheaper in Canada than in the US. Does that apply to veterinary drugs as well? If anyone has any info on this subject it would be greatly appreciated. I think this topic would draw some interest in the US.

    I could post some drug costs and you could compare. There is talk of either banning Canadian drugs heading south to Americans or taxing them so they cost about the same as buying in the USA (human drugs). You can thank the FDA for threatening the Canadian govt. into action.
