There are ways to save on on your pet's need for medication. This guide is about saving money on pet medications.
I order all my Flea and Heartworm protection from www.petshed.com. They are half the price of what I used to pay at my Vet. I just placed an order for the 6 month package for dogs 45-88 pounds, and with shipping it came to $70.90. It takes about a week to arrive, but I always reorder it once I use my last application.

This is a great website for pet meds. I have been buying my heartworm medicine form them for 5 or 6 years and cannot believe the difference in price. Not to mention no need for a blood test every year, with 5 dogs that would break the bank.

Keep the pill box/dispenser in the refrigerator. You are already opening and closing its door many times a day. Come cool autumn weather you can keep capsules on a counter, or wherever, again.
Tips for Saving Money on Pet Prescriptions. Post your ideas here.
If your pet is on medication sometimes it's cheaper to get the medication through your people pharmacy. I had a dog on phenobarbital and it was loads cheaper getting it at my local pharmacy.
Always ask the vet if the medication being prescribed is available at a regular drugstore. If so, have her write the Rx for you. Vets charge a lot more for medications than cut-rate pharmacies like Walmart or Costco.
