VetCentric, the leader in vet-sponsored home delivery of FDA and EPA-approved medications for pets, has entered into an agreement with Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) to provide their graduates (guide dog users) with special discount pricing for their pet medications.
To take advantage of VetCentric’s special prescription discount plan, GDB graduates simply need to register online at guidedogs.com, print the custom form and bring it to their local veterinary clinic.
“We’ve streamlined the process for both the veterinary clinic and the dog owners,” said Joe Gatto, Senior Director of Business Development at VetCentric. “We’re incredibly excited and proud to work with Guide Dogs for the Blind. The work they do has had such an incredible impact on so many lives,” added Gatto.
Established in 1942, Guide Dogs for the Blind provides enhanced mobility and quality of life to people who are blind through lifetime partnerships with Guide Dogs. This non-profit organization, headquartered in San Rafael, CA, is the largest school of its kind and has produced more than 11,000 partnerships across the United States and Canada.
“We look forward to our new partnership with VetCentric and the positive impact it will have on our graduates,” said Terry Barrett, Director of Training Operations for GDB.
GDB’s services are provided free-of-charge to those it serves, and the organization relies entirely on private donations. Please visit guidedogs.com or toll free at 800.295.4050 for additional information.
