Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) January 14, 2009
The recession isn't only hard on Americans, but also their pets. Many pets are being given up daily due to tough economic times--people who lost their job or other income can no longer afford to take care of them. Pets at even greater risk are those with medical conditions requiring regular, and sometimes costly, prescription medications. Founders of http://www.YourRxCard.com, a free prescription drug card program helping Americans cut their own prescription drug costs, have launched a free pet medication card designed to help those who can't afford to pay the full cost of their pet's medications.
"Pets are often like members of the family," says PetMedicationCard.com President Rex Bowden Jr. "A slow economy is tough enough on a family already without having to give up a member over something like pet medication costs."
The free pet medication card can be generated and printed online by filling out a simple form, and will help Americans save on veterinary prescriptions at over 52,000 pharmacies nationwide. Savings vary on each medication, and may be as high as 75% off retail prices.
"Our card is completely free to use, and it's designed to ease the burden for owners of pets whether they require one-time or regular prescription medications," says Bowden. "Our mission involves helping people keep all members of their family healthy and happy--even the four-legged ones."
There are no deductibles, no waiting periods, and no exclusions for a pet's pre-existing conditions. All Americans with pets are eligible for a free pet medication card from PetMedicationCard.com.
Understanding that Americans may also be unable to afford other aspects of keeping their pets (such as buying pet food) given the current economic situation, PetMedicationCard.com recommends pet owners also browse additional pet financial aid options available through various communities and organizations, compiled by The Humane Society of the United States.
PetMedicationCard.com is a free pet medication card program offered to all American pet owners who want to cut their pet medication costs. The free cards can be activated and printed directly from the website, and brought to any of over 52,000 pharmacies for savings of up to 75% off retail prices. There are no deductibles, no waiting periods, and no pre-existing exclusions with the use of the card.
