Default Anyone ever fill dog prescriptions at target?

It says they carry interceptor, among other things. I'm curious what the prices are like before I ask my vet for a prescription.

Generally, it's a lot cheaper for pet meds at pharmacies than at the vet. It's what I do. I'm not sure about Target in particular, though.

Seems like it'd be a $4 drug/month.. that's really interesting.

They have Meloxicam on the $4 prescription list... if that's the case, I could be saving so much freaking money! I need to ask my vet about that!

The three vets I've used have charged a premium to write the Rx if you won't fill it with them, so for me to was going to cost about the same.

Only the drugs with a * are the $4 generics.

I've never had anything I could fill anywhere else besides the Clavamox that I got when I was in Indy and just wanted my stupid drugs and to go back to the hotel already... I didn't know they had Interceptor. Probably worth calling them to ask how much it is but I bet it's not much different than the vet's office.

It's a shame that it's illegal to do that for people, but perfectly fine in the pet world.

Yeah, next time I'm in there I'm going to drop by the pharmacy and ask.

My vet is the one who told me that going to a pharmacy would be cheaper

I don't think my vet would have a problem with it either. If it ends up being significantly cheaper at target, I'm definitely going to ask them to write a prescription.

That's ridiculous! I never actually heard of that - we certainly have never charged for writing a script. In fact writing scripts for $4 generics saves a LOT of parvo puppies when owners otherwise can't afford treatment/meds.

I get meds at cost where I work, so until I find a new job I don't bother with scripts. I may do so when I no longer work in a vet clinic, depending on the drug. Name brand Soloxine is working so well with Gavroche (when the generic Thyro-tabs didn't work well) that I would really hesitate to change brands. But for antibiotics and stuff like that, sure.
