Pet Medications And How To Better Afford Them | RetailMeNot Rx Saver

It happened – you took Fido in for his annual checkup and he was diagnosed with diabetes. The vet wrote a diabetes prescription for your best friend and now you have to worry about affording it. We get it – pet medications can be expensive. You don’t have to worry about high costs when it comes to your pet’s wellbeing though. Did you know Rx Saver can help you save money on your pet’s medications, just like it can on your medications?

There is a way to save money on your pet’s medication

Since we know your pet could be suffering from things like pain, anxiety, or even diabetes, we want you to be aware that there is a way you can save money on these costs. As long as your pet’s medication is also a human medication, we can help you save.

Why do pet medications cost me so much?

People don’t generally have health insurance for their pet, since coverage costs can be around $300 a year. Without pet health insurance, your annual trip to the vet can be costly. Especially if your pet was prescribed a new prescription you weren’t expecting to pay for.

Unfortunately, Rx Saver isn’t currently able to help you save on medications to treat heartworm, or petmeds for fleas and ticks.

5 common human medications that are often prescribed to pets

  1. Lantus
  2. Amitriptyline
  3. Fluoxetine
  4. Diazepam
  5. Gabapentin
