Bring your pet’s prescription to this surprising place

According to the FTC’s Competition In The Pet Medications Industry 2013 report, consumers spent $7.6 billion on prescription and non-prescription medication for cats and dogs. That’s a huge amount of money that has traditionally stayed in the veterinarian’s office, however, there are now far more places to buy your pets medication, and at an increasingly lower cost.

The obvious choice is to find an online pharmacy that specializes in pet medications. You will need a valid prescription from your regular veterinarian for some of the products, but the website 1800petmeds.com claims they can save consumers up to 50% off vet office prices. Other online pharmacies include PetCareRx, and Doctors Foster and Smith.

But online pharmacies take time to validate prescriptions, you need to wait for medications to be shipped, and temperature-sensitive medications require bulky packaging.

The most surprising place that you can get your pet prescription filled is your local grocery store pharmacy!

The following grocery store chains offer pet medications in their pharmacies! Simply take your prescription to the counter (or drive-thru) and they will put together your order while you shop or run errands! They stock a good selection of medications and you get savings and immediate availability.

The following grocery stores offer pet medications in their pharmacies. This is not an exhaustive list. Be sure to ask at your local grocery store what pet medications they can compound or stock.
