Benefitting From Your Vet’s Pharmacy

Benefitting From Your Vet’s Pharmacy

iStock_000008847188_MediumIn the looming shadows of our present economic state, almost everyone shares a common interest – saving money. Clipping coupons, budgeting, buying in bulk, and eliminating unnecessary goods or indulgences can be the best ways to streamline expenditures.

However, when it comes to looking for better options for your pet’s medications, be careful when trusting sources other than your veterinarian’s pharmacy. Pet owners certainly have the right to shop around for better deals from a long list of other sources; but how can you be sure you are getting what your pet really and truly needs?

Protect Your Pet

If you do a simple online search for the medication your pet needs, you will undoubtedly be bombarded with countless organizations and entities willing to sell you a product. However, nationwide investigations have uncovered that some pet medications bought from online retailers can be illegal or counterfeit.

Before buying from an online retailer, always research the retailer’s accreditations and be extremely wary of the following:

  • Pharmacies not requiring a prescription from your pet’s vet
  • Pharmacies outside of the United States (these companies are not regulated by the FDA; drug ingredients can be unreliable posing significant risks for your pet)
  • Sites with no contact information
  • Sites that do not offer correspondence with a licensed vet
  • Prices that are not even close to what you normally pay for your pet’s meds
  • Medicine that doesn’t resemble what you’ve previously given your pet
  • The medication’s warranty is void
  • Save Money Through Your Vet’s Pharmacy

    We purchase medications directly from the drug manufacturers which assures the products have been produced and stored correctly. They provide us with rebate coupons that we pass along to pet owners and, as a result, the prices we list are often lower than what you would find at online pharmacies. Furthermore, you can be confident that you are purchasing the correct medication that your vet has prescribed for your pet.

    Staying Current on Pet Meds

    Schertz Animal Hospital has been and always will be dedicated to your pet’s wellbeing and safety. Our vigilance extends to your pet’s prescriptions and we will continue to recommend, encourage, and provide financially reasonable options for the required medication.

    As an example, Bravecto is a chewable tablet for fleas and ticks given once every three months. Depending on your pet’s weight, one tablet can range between $38 to $52. Going through our pharmacy, pet owners will receive a $50 rebate when two tablets are purchased (a six-month supply). We find that to be a worthwhile incentive and hope you are satisfied with the savings.

    The Bottom Line

    We simply want the best for your pet and do not take prescription medications for your pet lightly. By offering rebates, we continue our commitment to provide the best and most cost effective care and medications for your pet.
