My pups are about to have their annual heartworm tests but I have enough meds to make it to 2 months prior to my relocation.  I was wondering if it would be more cost effective to get a year’s prescription for both my pets in the US or is it cheaper to buy in Portugal? (If it is less expensive in Portugal, I’d just buy enough to get me through my January arrival date).

We’ve found the medications are fairly similar in costs – especially the brand names. Especially since they’re taxed at 23%. But the services are much cheaper. Our average vet visit costs less than half what it did in VA. We needed an ultrasound for our hound, and it came to about 50 bucks – shudder to think what that would have cost in the US.
