PET MEDICATIONS AT YOUR LOCAL PHARMACY
It comes as a surprise to pet owners to find out that they can fill many of their veterinarian medication at a local pharmacy. While some drugs are for veterinarian use only, many are the exact same drugs used in human medicine, or close equivalents. The price difference between the human and veterinary medications can be substantial.
Example: " I paid $72 for a veterinarian pain medication that, when I refilled it at my local pharmacy only cost me $9 Great Savings - Thank you! " C. O'Neal, PA.
INSTRUCTIONS: How does the National Pet Drug Card work?
All you need to do is ask the veterinarian for a written prescription and take it to the pharmacy along with the Pet Drug Card. It is important to ask the veterinarian for the written prescription (before you check out) while you are in the consultation room with him/her and your pet. This will let the vet know that you prefer to have a written prescription that you can take to the pharmacy rather than have him/her fill the prescription at their office.
Please Note: Not every pharmacy is equipped to provide every animal medicine. Please check with your pharmacy to see if they can provide the medications you require for your animals. Pet drug card can also be use with live stock animals and other pets.
