Georgia’s Legacy blog posted a recent success story on how she saved money on pet drugs by purchasing them at Walgreens.
If you are used to spending big bucks on your pet’s prescriptions each month, you may want to consider joining the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club, where pets are family too!. Most of us are familar with plans like these for humans, but you may not know that the Walgreens Family Enrollment plan, which is only $35 per year, ALSO includes your four-legged family members!
Keri Goldman of Paws 4 a Cure, who originally let us know about this great program, reported that her dog’s medications would have been $187 without the plan, but after transferring the prescriptions to Walgreens, the same medications were only $41.14 with the Prescription Savings Club!
Note: This is a savings of $145.86

What a fantastic money saving tip. I would have never thought to put my pet on a drug saving plan like this, and I used to work at an emergency vet 🙂 Obviously this does not count towards all types of drugs such as Frontline and such (which you can usually find cheaper on amazon.com anyway than at your Veterinarian’s office), but any mainstream drugs I imagine would fall into this same category.
I would think other pharmacies such as Rite Aid, who provide prescription discount cards, would be a good place to purchase discounted drugs for your pets as well. Has anyone had any experience with this?
