Thrifty Vet - SCAM

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
In May 2012 I ordered a years supply of frontline for 2 cats and 1 dog...I never received a receipt for my purchase.
It arrived in a timely manner and began applying it to the animals each month as directed.
We have such a flea infestation in our home...this stuff DOES NOT work. My husband brought the pacakge
to our vet..and they told him we have been SCAMMED, the vet tech showed my husband the difference
in packaging between the real frontline product and what we purchased from Thrifty Vet sold as "frontline".
$272 later, I supposeI am thankful that whatever...

These guys are apparently a scam. Ordered flea product from them Dec 2010, they said it was shipped on 28 Dec 2010, now is is Feb 8, 2011 and still no product. Sent 7 emails to them, they responded with 2, and they said they even reshipped item after second time but both times they said it was held up due to bad weather. Item was paid through Paypal to Lloyd McKinney, have submitted claim to Paypal for refund of money because I don't believe these items were ever shipped, especially after supposedly being shipped twice. I hope someone nails these guys and stops this fraud. phoenixburner...

Thrifty Vet - Order received after 44 days

Update: I finally received my shipment on 1/28/11 (29 business days/44 calendar days after 12/15/10 shipment). Have called both MasterCard and PayPal to cancel my dispute of charges. Apologize for thinking Thrifty Vet was crooked, but still think 29 business days is excessive, even for December overseas orders. I would be willing to pay extra for option to ship with a tracking number....

Thrifty Vet - product not received; won't provide refund

I ordered flea medication for my cats on 11/19/10 and still haven't received anything. I have contacted Thrifty Vet via email 7 times to request a refund since I had to purchase the flea medicine locally and never received their shipment. Not only were they unable to provide me with a tracking number for the package which they claimed shipped on 11/22/10 stating that there's "no tracking available" (highly suspicious because all packages shipped in the US have tracking numbers) and they also promised to "replace at no cost" if it wasn't delivered "within a reasonable time." When I...

I am also a victim of Thrifty Vet. Ordered Frontline Plus for Cats 12/14/10. Supposedly shipped 12/15/10. Product not received after one month (20 business days). Feel stupid not having investigated them before I ordered. Fortunately, MasterCard is crediting back my money, including Foreign Transaction Fee. Good example of why using credit card is important. Reported problem to PayPal Customer Service (as a courtesy)....

I ordered Frontline Plus on 12/18/10 but have not received my order. Order Number is: 184632, Customer Number is: 304885
I had ordered from this company before and got the Frontline I had ordered, but that was over 6 months ago. I'm concerned that I might have been scammed!

Thrifty Vet - Oregon, Hillsboro - Have not received product

This website seems legitimate but after 35 days I still have not received my product. When contacted they told me it was the weather, 14 days later they told me the mail was being held up at the border by homeland security, they even took the time to send me what looked like a bulletin from the Canadian Postal Service. I think this guy does this to delay anyone filing a dispute through paypal which can only be done within the first 45 days. So buyer beware....

Thrifty Vet - Florida - &Foreign Transaction Fees& apply, are not properly disclosed

Watch out! If you place an order with Thrifty Vet (a Canadian merchant) from the U.S.A., in addition to lengthy delivery intervals (2 weeks or more), you will likely be hit with a "Foreign Transaction Fee" if you paid by credit card. This applies even if you paid through PayPal if your PayPal account is linked to your credit card.
I ended up getting hit by my credit card issuer with what amounted to a 3% fee, beyond the final checkout total.
Others have commented on how Thrifty Vet does a lousy job disclosing they're a Canadian merchant, and this is yet another reason not to do...

I purchased a flea treatment from this company on 06-04-09, my bank account was charged twice for the same item. The website did not recognise my address with my debit, due to prgramming errors. I have not recieved my invoice or response indicating payment was recieved or anything what so ever. My bank account was charged payment was recieved. This company does not have a phone number for customer service.

I suspect this company is fraudulant
