"The Greatest Gift You Can Bestow On Another
Would you like to pay LESS for Pet Medicine?
According to Good Housekeeping Magazine (Oct. 2006 issue), you can save a
great deal of money by buying your pet's medicine (including shipping costs) by
obtaining it from one of the listed companies below, rather than from your
veterinarian. (P.S. According to Veterinary Economics magazine, drugs sold by veterinarians have a markup of 150% to 175%!)
Doctors Foster and Smith
The bill for a six-month supply of flea-and-tick meds was 30 percent LESS
than the prices quoted by the Veterinarians across the country that Good
Housekeeping surveyed. They also have supplies for the widest range of animals,
from ferrets to finches!
Pricesquoted were 28 percent less.
A six-month supply of heartworm medicine cost 11 percent less. The website also has a easy-to-find special sales section.
The six-month supply of flea-and-tick medicine cost 10 percent less here. The website also has LIVE support from a vet and pharmacist.
You'll need to send a written prescription from your vet for some medicines.
If your pet is taking a brand-name drug, ask your vet if there's a
generic equivalent--it will have a smaller price tag. Also inquire about
SAMPLES; its likely your vet has some on hand to give out for FREE (just like at your doctor!)
www.stopfleasnow.com Great place to order pet supplies i.e. Frontline Plus. Prices are reasonable and shipping is FREE! 3-4 day delivery.
OTHER MEDICAL PROGRAMS
If you're in financial hardship and your pet goes to one of the nearly 3,000 American Animal Hospital
Association-accredited clinics, you may qualify for a grant of up to $500 per year to pay for a specific Procedure.

MORE WAYS TO SAVE AT THE VET!
Your local Humane Society or SPCA may provide discounted vaccinations,
spaying and neutering services as well as some pet supply chains that may offer discounted vaccinations. www.aspca.org
Also, think about volunteering at your local clinic. You might just get a discount on animal care! For a list of clinics in your area, visit www.pets911.com
Get Only REQUIRED vaccines.
For a full list, go to aspca.org and click on "pet care", then "dog care" OR
"cat care". Some vaccines, like giardia for dogs and ringworm for cats, don't
prevent infection and can mask the problem.
Check with your local pet store such as PETCO........many have low-cost
Buy Meds Elseware
You can save a great deal by buying online at discount websites (see top of page!),
BUT drugstores often will fill pet prescriptions and may charge as much as 2/3's
less than a vet!

Negotiate Your Payments!
Don't be afraid to be frank with your vet about your finances...some will work out reduced rates or payment plans with their clients. Another option is CareCredit, a national program that allows pet owners to pay for treatments on a monthly basis. http://www.carecredit.com/practices/veterinary.
