Understanding Pet Prescription Drug Cards

The pet medication card is a card that allows you to access medication for your pet at lower prices. According to various studies, the card allows you to save an average of 55% on generics and 15% on brand-name medicines in more than 80% of pharmacies around the world.

The upside is that the card is usually free. To get it, just visit your favorite issuing company and register. Once registered, you will receive the card and you can use it at any of your favorite pharmacies.

Once you have obtained the card, you don’t have to worry about expiration. It is because it does not expire.

The other advantage is that there is no deductible. When you use the card, the only price deducted is the price of drugs; no transaction fees are charged. Other advantages of the card include: no claim form, no limitation of use and no limitation of pre-existing conditions.

You can use the card in two ways: as a stand-alone program or in conjunction with a pet insurance program.

When you use the card as a standalone device, you will only get discounts when purchasing drugs; however, if you decide to use the card in conjunction with the insurance program, the insurance company will take care of your veterinary bills while the card will help you offset the cost of medication.

Who should have this card?

This card is ideal for anyone with pets who need medication. Pets can be dogs, birds, snakes, horses, cats and any other animals you may have.

To get the drugs at reduced prices, simply use a pharmacy locator to find the participating pharmacies closest to your area. Once you have found a participating pharmacy, you will need to present the card at the pharmacy and you will receive low cost pet medication.

The good side of the card is that it covers a wide range of medications. Medications covered include: antibiotics, blood pressure, anxiety, diabetes and any other prescribed and compounded medication for farm animals.

You have to be very careful when obtaining the card. Indeed, some issuing companies may scam you after paying the premium. To make sure the issuing company is reputable, you need to research it before you part with your money.
