Save up to 88% on your medications

Managing your pet’s healthcare can present significant financial hardship, especially if they get sick. Even if you have pet insurance, the costs can be exorbitant because the insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions or expensive medications. If you have these challenges, insurance or not, don't worry. Read on to find out how you can use the RxLess discount card to make your pet medications much more affordable.

Do pets suffer similar diseases and conditions as humans?

Like their owners, pets can suffer from diseases and conditions such as diabetes, anxiety, and allergies. Your veterinarian may prescribe human medications to treat those conditions.

Can pets take the same medications as humans?

Pets are often prescribed medications similar to those taken by their owners to treat specific disease conditions. The difference is only in the dosage. Examples of such medicines are amitriptyline, atenolol, cisplatin, diazepam, meloxicam, tramadol, fluoxetine, etc.

How can I get a prescription for my pets?

Ask your veterinarian or animal-licensed care provider for a physical prescription before leaving the appointment.

How do I fill a pet medication prescription?

You can conveniently fill your pet's medications in your local pharmacy if the prescription medication is approved for use in both pets and humans. Examples of such medications include antibiotics, antifungals, and antidepressants.

When you fill your pet's prescription at your local pharmacy, such as CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens, you can save up to 88% on your medications using an RxLess coupon. For example, gabapentin, approved for both humans and pets, has a retail price of $63.39, but you can get it for just $16.40 using an RxLess coupon.

How can I fill prescriptions for pet-specific medications?

The discounts listed on RxLess will not work for pet-specific medications. You should check with your veterinarian about the best resources available.

How do I use RxLess to save on my pet-specific medications?

If your pet is prescribed a medication that can also be prescribed to a human, RxLess can help! Just follow these four simple steps:

  • Ask your veterinarian or animal-licensed care provider for a physical prescription before leaving the appointment.
  • Type the name of your medication in the search bar on the RxLess website to find a pharmacy that offers the best price in your area.
  • Show your RxLess coupon at the pharmacy counter when you want to fill your prescription or call ahead with the details on your coupon.
  • Save up to 88% on your pet's prescription!
