If you’ve ever purchased a prescription for your dog at a regular people pharmacy, you might be in for a BIG surprise!
Many pet owners don’t realize that there are ways to save on pet prescriptions. Yes, and I mean WITHOUT insurance! You’ve probably realized that even if you have a good pet insurance policy, it’s unlikely to cover costly pet meds. This means that if you’re buying your dog’s prescription at a regular pharmacy, you’re likely paying a hefty price, since no insurance co-pays are involved. The iHeartDogs Rx Savings Card might just be a HUGE help!
What kind of medications are eligible for discounts?
Now let’s be upfront. The iHeartDogs Rx Savings Card will not help you if you’re buying a pet only medication (like flea or heartworm prevention) through an online only pharmacy or through your vet. However, a large percentage of pet drugs are available at your local pharmacy. If this is in fact the case, you may receive a substantial discount by using this card.
But wait, what’s the catch? Nothing is really free right?
Yes and no. The reality is local pharmacies want your business. (In fact, they make most of their money from other products people buy when they come in to fill prescriptions!) For this reason, pharmacies will pay a small fee in order to drive business into their stores. Because we can bring a large volume of customers to them, discounts are negotiated on your behalf, and you benefit from bulk discount pricing. This allows you to receive a price that in most cases is much lower than the usual and customary price your pharmacy charges when you are buying a pet prescription using no insurance.
Our Card Is Accepted by Nearly Every Pharmacy!
That’s right. Below you’ll see a sampling of the pharmacies that accept the card. You’ve got absolutely nothing to lose, simply present the card to see if the pricing we offer is better than what you’re normally charged.
Will the card ALWAYS save me money?
In most cases, our negotiated pricing will be cheaper than what your pharmacy’s cash price is. In some cases however, certain pharmacy chains will already have the lowest price available. If you present the card, you can be assured that you will ALWAYS pay the lowest price available. In some cases, your pharmacy already has a lower price in which case that is the price you pay. In other words, you lose nothing by at least printing the card and presenting it to your pharmacy.
How Much of a Discount Will The Card Provide?
The largest savings are realized on generic brand drugs and can be up to 70% off. The average savings is around 30%, with brand name drugs in the 5-15% range. Please be aware that savings do vary based on pharmacy to pharmacy.
