Folks: This sounds a little too good to be true but am sharing info anyway. As many of you know already, many medications that your vet prescribes can be purchased for less money at a human pharmacy, especially since some stores are now offering $4.00/month fills for many drugs.

<span style="text-decoration: underline">New Free Pet Medication Card Helps Pet Owners Save on Prescription Pet Medications</span>

A new free pet medication card, from the founders of YourRxCard.com, is now available through www.PetMedicationCard.com. The prescription drug card will help pet owners save on their cash payments for prescribed pet medications.

Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) January 14, 2009 -- The recession isn't only hard on Americans, but also their pets. Many pets are being given up daily due to tough economic times--people who lost their job or other income can no longer afford to take care of them. Pets at even greater risk are those with medical conditions requiring regular, and sometimes costly, prescription medications. Founders of www.YourRxCard.com, a free prescription drug card program helping Americans cut their own prescription drug costs, have launched a free pet medication card designed to help those who can't afford to pay the full cost of their pet's medications.


Pets are often like members of the family, says PetMedicationCard.com President Rex Bowden Jr. A slow economy is tough enough on a family already without having to give up a member over something like pet medication costs.


The free pet medication card can be generated and printed online by filling out a simple form, and will help Americans save on veterinary prescriptions at over 52,000 pharmacies nationwide. Savings vary on each medication, and may be as high as 75% off retail prices.


Our card is completely free to use, and it's designed to ease the burden for owners of pets whether they require one-time or regular prescription medications, says Bowden. Our mission involves helping people keep all members of their family healthy and happy--even the four-legged ones.


There are no deductibles, no waiting periods, and no exclusions for a pet's pre-existing conditions. All Americans with pets are eligible for a free pet medication card from PetMedicationCard.com.


Understanding that Americans may also be unable to afford other aspects of keeping their pets (such as buying pet food) given the current economic situation, PetMedicationCard.com recommends pet owners also browse additional pet financial aid options available through various communities and organizations, compiled by The Humane Society of the United States.

I have no idea but description refers to 57,000 pharmacies so I am thinking there are certain ones that will but don't see a list anywhere on the site.

We just had an article in the local paper about a pharmacy and vet (ours as a matter of fact) who will fill or make up pet medications. The article said that many of the meds that dogs and cats use came from people meds and the other way around....this pharmacist will also add a meaty or vanilla flavor to the medication so that the pet will take it easier. It was very interesting, I'll see if I can locate it, and post it.

I actually get three of Maggie's meds at Target in their $4.00 program. They even count towards their prescription rewards program. Way less expensive than getting them through the vet and my vet is great about calling in scripts anywhere I want.

(Cathy -- your link isn't working ... I got an expired message.)
