Prescriptions for your Pets

by Melanie Wilcox January 9, 2017 Drug Savings

More Americans are buying more medicine for their pets. If you're reading this blog, you likely are too. Retail sales of pet medications in the United States reached $8 billion in 2013 alone – an increase of $160 million from 2012. And there are no signs of slowing down. By 2018, the market will top $10 billion.

Why the boom?

  • There are several new products on the market.

  • Veterinarians are selling more non-flea and tick drugs.

  • Pet ownership has increased.

The last point is the most significant. According to the American Pet Products Association, pet ownership among all U.S. households increased to 68 percent, which is an increase of 82.5 million pet-owning households in 2012. More households own a dog (47 percent) than own a cat (37 percent).

As pet ownership increases, prescription purchases do too.

If you own a pet, you care for your pet. If you are lucky enough to have pet insurance, your premiums may have increased. With more pet medication and supplements ensuring longer, healthier lives for pets, you can save on care for your dog or cat today.

Your pet deserves the best care, and that’s where we help you.

  1. With RefillWise, you can save up to 80% – or an average of $15 – per prescription.

  2. As a pet owner, it makes the most sense to use RefillWise since your pet's prescription can be aggregated into total prescription savings. For example, if you are picking up a prescription for yourself or a friend or family member – paired with your pet – you can get savings and rewards faster than you normally would.

Think about it:

  • You receive a $5 gift card (as good as cash) the first time you pick up a prescription — for yourself or your pet — using your RefillWise card.

  • For every tenth prescription you purchase – you earn an additional $5 gift card – usable for anything in store, not just prescriptions.

By using your account to purchase additional prescriptions for your pets and for your family members, you will likely get faster turnaround on savings.

RefillWise is accepted at all chain pharmacies and most independent pharmacies nationwide. By using RefillWise for your pet, you can save more and get rewards faster – easily and conveniently.
