I have contacted Drs. Foster and Smith to never ship anything to me via FedEx Smart Post. They told me I should receive my package within 7 business days.
Here are two links from sad consumers:
The original Rx was mailed to the company on 9-4-08 and just received yesterday on 9/11/08. They don't accept consumer faxed Rx; only from the vet, who was hesitant to give me the Rx to begin with. At the vet the cost per pill is $6.00, from the company it is $3.65. This Rx mailed from Cleveland to Wisconsin. That's a very long time for the US mail. I just hope my Cosmo has no ill effects from the lack of the medicine. If I knew how poor the FedEx Smart Post was, I would have gladly paid for another shipping method.
This is an explanation for FedEx Smart Post:
I promise to update daily until the package arrives.
9/12/08. So far the package left Drs. Foster and Smith on 9/11/08.

It's says delivered, but my office is closed on Saturdays!
I'm happy to say I received the package today at 9am. Cosmo took his pill when I arrived home and all lived happily ever after.
