Lazy Rainy Days and a PSA

We've had a few gray & rainy days so we have not had any adventures in the past few days. Momma got tired of rescuing the sofa pillows from me so she put them away. That made me so sad because I love to shake them! Meany Momma told me to settle down and take a nap. Thankfully, I'm big enough to use the arm of the sofa as a pillow! But the sun is shining today so I'm nipping at Momma's heels to take us to the park to run off some pent up energy.

In the current economy, we wanted to share with you several ways to save money on some of your medical needs. We do like to shop local and support our vet, but there are times that getting medications at our vet cuts into our treat and toy budget. Were you aware that many of your dog and cat prescriptions can be filled at a regular pharmacy for less? There are online options too but they would include a shipping cost. Plus the convenience of having the prescription filled while your parents do their other shopping.

Publix will fill your prescription for some antibiotics for free!

Walgreens includes pet prescriptions in their Prescription Savings Club. There is a fee for this program but this includes 400 generics priced at $12 for a 90 day supply. Plus many Walgreens are open 24/7

Walmart also has a list of generics priced at $10 for a 90 day supply. This may be a good option for those of you on Prednisone.

These are just some of the options. So have your parents check with pharmacies in your area...... and suggest that they spend some of their savings on a new toy for you!

Woof ya later!

Oh I don't take any medication but that is a nice thoughtful post for pups that do.

Moco said...

What good advice.

So that could be why Mom takes all the pillows off the sofas here too - and we thought it was because of the little bipeds - hmmmmm, have to fix that.

Hope you got a walk in, gorgeous day here. Thanks for the money tips.

woos, the OP Pack

Sigh. We aren't ALLOWED on the sofa. Zim would be willing to fluff those pillows like he does the bed ones ... but can he? No. Stupid, stupid rules!
PS: KV Vet supply on line has some things (like our Cosequin DS) for free! : )

We are having a pretty day, north of you, sunshine and blue skies, and 74 degrees.

Thanks for the tips on the pills, we will look for that kind of thing in the future.

Hope you get your walk, Bricey!

I am very lucky here in that our vets dispense at the surgery, although they do charge enough for that.. Hope you got a walk.. Hugs GJ xx

I am allowed on the couch any time I want. I have my mum and dad well trained. I don't take any medications but that is good advice for anypup or cat who does.

Wooos I like the comfy couch too, but right now it is too hot and I prefer the cool tile. Mom only wishes that my meds could be got at wally world, but mine have to come from a compounding pharmacy and it costs a fortune.
I hope this helps others though!
