Albertsons Companies’ shoppers will now be able to have their pet’s prescriptions filled at their local banner store pharmacy while paying less than they would at the vet.
Available at more than 1,700 pharmacies nationwide, the grocery retailer will now carry a variety of affordable pet medications including OTC tick, flea and heartworm preventatives. Pet medications are available for shipping and delivery and will soon be available via mail order.
Customers can also purchase the Pet Health Savings Card, which can help save nearly 80 percent off the monthly cost of pet medications. As an added perk, when customers transfer a pet prescription to an Albertsons Cos. pharmacy, they will receive up to $75 in grocery gift cards after filling their fifth prescription.
“Nearly 30% of pet owners are grappling with the rising costs of pet ownership amid inflation* and most consumers don’t realize that our pharmacies offer prescriptions and over-the-counter medications for people and pets,” said Omer Gajial, chief digital officer and EVP of health at Albertsons Cos. “Whether it’s delivering medication to their home, offering additional discounts through our Pet Health Savings Card, or partnering with innovative companies to provide convenient veterinary care, our commitment to our customers’ health and well-being applies to every family member, including the four-legged kind."
