Family Plan

I went to Walgreens to pick up one of my prescriptions. While there I remembered my mom telling me about Rite Aid offering animal prescriptions, so I asked about it. Sure enough, if the medication has a human equivalent they can get it. I asked about the 2 drugs Seneca and Barrett are on long term and the pharmacist said they could do those. So, I enrolled in the Walgreens Family Plan. I have my own insurance from work, but sometimes, they say, this plan will have a better price. I'll automatically get whichever is lower. Now Seneca, Barrett, and Paulie are on the plan, each with their own prescription card; they share my phone number and e-mail address, however. I doubt I'll get any rat meds here, I don't think Walgreens compounds to a banana flavor, but they asked for 3 names so I added a different species. OK, I just looked and they can make liquid medication banana flavored. Hmmm. I wonder if Baytril has a human equivilant?

Baytril does not seem to have a human equivalent, but it is related to Ciprofloxacin (Cipro). Dunno if the pharmacy would do that kind of switch though.

Yea, I'll probably just stick with the vet for the rat meds.

I need to check out that progam. Every month and a half (the vet was nice enough to write me a script for 6 weeks instead of 4), I have to go pick up the phenobarbital for Abbie. Thankfully it is relatively inexpensive, but if I can save a few bucks, it will be worth it.
