I had great experience

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

My dogs medicine is compounded so not all do it. This was the cheapest I found, I spoke to them on the phone as well & had a wonderful experience with them. Getting ready to reorder again.

Stolen bank card info!!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

They had both my bank debit card and an AMEX card. The only company that had both..since AMEX is new.

Both accounts hacked! Thousands taken! Hoping management looks into it...but I'm not hopeful. Now dealing with bank and credit card...could be 30 - 90 days before I get my money back.

Single mom...limited income...as long as we don't eat or get gas in the car I can pay my bills (house payment will be one day late!) After speaking with accounting last week (no one in office due to holiday)....they didn't seem to want to believe me when I said someone used my cards. Will TRY to follow up with upper management.

The *** bags need to know that the are taking away from a single mom with 2 kids (one special needs). Life is hard enough....really don't need the extra struggles.

Wow, so sorry to hear this happened to you. My recommendation for any internet transaction with a company that you're not familiar with is to make sure they have a secure web site where ordering occurs (SSL because who knows whose out there hacking these days!-*** these ppl break in to the US DoD's site!)...anyway, as an additional safety measure, I NEVER pay for anything online with a company that doesn't have a proven track record using my cards with higher limits or my bank's debit card - I have a *** throw away debit card that I never keep more than $75 on at any given time - if someone tries to steal that card, they can have it!

They're not going to get very far on $75, that's for sure - I also use this for the IRS or my State's toll authority automated replenish system - I don't trust them not to nail my regular cards with outrageous fines only to leave me fighting City Hall or to replenish more frequently than they should - we all live on budgets and sometimes, $40 makes all the difference - being a single mom myself, I definitely can sympathize with your situation. Some basic precautions will prevent this from happening to you again - if I ever order from this joint, I'll be sure to use the throwaway debit card.

Thanks for the heads up and hope it all works out for you.

SVPMEDS are UNSCRUPULOUS

SVPMEDS are UNSCRUPULOUS
SVPMEDS are UNSCRUPULOUS  - Image 2

I'm trying to find a product called PELLITOL OINTMENT for my dogs ears, but no luck. SVPMEDS finally pop up saying that they sell an identical product called Re-ca-litol Otic Ointment - same active ingredients as Pellitol®, but you must register to get more info.

So after filling out registration form with name, address, phone, email, user name and password, I finally get to the info page. There I learn that their product is $25 instead of $10 which was the price for PELLITOL. On top of that, their product is sold by PRESCRIPTION ONLY, which was not the case with PELLITOL, yet they claim it's the exact same ingredients. I feel that they are just gathering peoples personal info to sell to marketers, as well as ceasing an opportunity to gouge the public in need of a product that seems to have been discontinued.

Either way, they don't appear to be a company that deserves our patronage. Shame on them!!

The original maker retired and closed. These are pharmacy's that make a compound but with a slight change in ingredients and call it something else so they can bank on it!

There's no reason to need a prescription except to make more money and the fact that the product is coming from a pharmacy. I too have been searching! :/

The whole idea was to NOT have to take them to a vet!

But in order to get this product...YOU have to take them to a vet! Crazy!

Guest

The person who developed Pellitol retired and the product went off the market. Since then a couple of compound pharmacies have developed their own formulas.

It now is a prescription med and requires a prescription to order/purchase. SVP's version is highly recommended by the vet who brought this tried and true ear treatment back.

Pell Otic ointment from Wedgewood Pharmacy in Swedesboro, New Jersey, which packages the ointment in 15-milliliter syringes that retail for $24. This ointment contains zinc oxide, calamine, bismuth subnitrate, resorcinol, juniper tar, and bismuth subgallate, which are (except for echinacea) the same ingredients as Pellitol in a slightly different formula.

Wedgewood Pharmacy ships to all states except North Carolina. Pet owners can order Pell Otic ointment by phone or online, but orders must be accompanied by a veterinarian’s prescription.

I wonder if they ship to the uk or is this available over here too.

Guest

Thanks for putting this up here for others like myself looking for Pellitol.

Knowledge is something we should always be sharing and so I appreciate your posting

this specific experience with us.

I also need to order pell otic but it seems to be a real pain. I usually fill in what I want from valley vet and they contact my vet,wedgewood doesn't do that and valley vet doesn't carry pell otic. My dog had pellitol put in his ears at vet and it worked amazing but he can no longer travel

Guest

Has anyone found a solution?! My dog has been to the vet multiple times and to about 3 different vets trying to get rid of this ear infection!

We've used multiple medications which seem to work for awhile, but as soon as the mess are gone his ear starts oozing and gets really inflamed again. It stinks to high heaven and I hate seeing him so irritated with it. I'm at my whits end!

I'm a afraid to use this power solution some of you are talking about because of the alcohol in it. If his ear is raw it would burn so bad!

Guest

If you read a few websites (like this one: http://www.whole-dog-journal.com/issues/16_11/features/alternative-treatments-updated_20861-1.html), you learn that Pellitol is no longer manufactured/marketed. SVP Meds is a custom compounding pharmacy, so logically their product will cost more. It's not really fair to label them unscrupulous.

Guest

I bought the Recalitol from SVPMEDS and I think it is great stuff. Ear infections are nothing to mess around with.

Most ear infections are caused from what is going on with the dogs immune system and that is a problem that needs to solved but the Recalitol keeps the infection under control while you are strengthening the immune system. Yes I did have to have my vet send in the prescription.

I couldn't agree more!!! The whole veterinary profession is turning into a major rip off with suppliers following suit.

The prices charged are obscene when people are just trying to help their much loved pets. I'm not saying that services/products should be supplied for free but there should be a "happy medium" between "free" and "holy ***, is that my bill??!!!" and many products are now by prescription only that should be available OTC. Who does this benefit? Why, your vet of course.

You now have to pay for the office visit, exam and a super-inflated price for the meds when owners could have handled the treatment by themselves. I couldn't even find my way to the registration page for svpmeds. Now I find out that even if I had managed to register, it would have done me no good. Wish I had seen the article about pellitol back in 2004.

Maybe I could have bought it back then and stocked up.

If anyone finds a similar non-prescription product I would appreciate knowing about it. My vet has ripped me off for enough money already.

Alternative to Pellitol

They no longer make Pellitol. Just found out that there is a similar product called Pell Otic, which has the same ingredients with the exception of echinacea.

I believe the only place you can order it is Wedgewood Pharmacy in Swedesboro, New Jersey, and you have to have a vet's prescription before you can buy it. There are so many medications nowadays that used to be over-the-counter but are now prescription only. That way the doctors and veterinarians get a cut in addition to the pharmacists. Lortab is over-the-counter in Canada and Europe.

It's past time the U.S. got universal healthcare. Put an end to the greedy bastards who go into medicine for the money instead of caring for people and animals. Great Britain has the number one healthcare in the world.

Countries with universal healthcare have higher quality of life and longer life expectancy. Healthcare is a right, not a privilege.

Are you ignorant? Universal health care causes huge tax increases 40-50% of your income as well as limited coverage.

If you are elderly and have cancer they will not treat as the prognosis is not good. Do your research before writing an ignorant comment that has NOTHING to do with this pharmacy.
