It can be hard, in these tough economic times, to figure out a way to pay for quality health care for your four-legged family member. Did you know that the National Association of Counties sponsors a discount prescription drug program that helps you save money, not only for your human family members, but for your pets, as well?
Almost 1/2 of all counties nationwide participate in this program, which is free to residents of those counties who do not already have prescription drug insurance or whose medication is not covered by health insurance. There are no age nor income requirements, and there are no medical condition restrictions. On average, an individual can save 23% on prescription drugs a the nearly 60,000 retail pharmacies also participate, including CVS, Rite Aid, and Wal-Mart. Simply present the drug card, along with the prescription from your veterinarian.
