When we adopted our kitty Mason we had no idea what medical issues we were going to face. We thought, you adopt a pet, take them to the vet on a regular basis and that’s it, right? Wrong. Over the years, this cat has cost us more than our car. She has had a tumor, surgery to remove it, asthma attacks, medication to take for asthma, dehydration, over-night vet stays, IV’s, and so much more. Medications for pets is expensive. But, we have shelled out dollar after dollar because she is apart of our family.
Mason was our first baby, William and I got her when we first moved in together. I remember going to the shelter, picking her out, and bringing her into a little room to play. She was affectionate, sweet, and so cute. Obviously it was a no-brainer, so we adopted her and took her home. The Humane Society told us that she was found wandering the streets of Detroit, but that they had tested her and she looked very healthy.
Well a few months later she developed a terrible cough and after many vet visits and many sleepless nights we discovered that she had feline asthma. I had never even heard of feline asthma! But it required medication, and that didn’t come cheap – especially through the vet. I was surprised to discover that you can fill pet prescriptions from Walgreens – which actually are less expensive than the vet ( they usually charge a dispensing fee). And it’s very easy to register your pet online.
You just head over, sign-up (it’s free), add your family members/pets, and fill your prescriptions. It makes it easy to order what your family needs and pick it up at one location. So, you’re not running around all over town to the vet and then the pharmacy. You can even set up a refill reminders so your prescription for your pet will always be ready. With all of the things we have to manage – it’s nice to get reminders!
Do you have a pet that takes medication? Make it easier on yourself (and perhaps your wallet) and fill at Walgreens!
Plus, while you’re there you can pick out a nail polish or two 😉
