    I just found this out! Kiefer was born with arthritis, and it's starting to get bad. I heard that COSTCO did this, so I went in yesterday and registered Kiefer. They consider your dog a dependent (sure wish the IRS did!) and eligible to get medicine from them. You don't have to be a member to get medicine from Costco, but if you are, your dogs get a further discount!

    His vet called in the prescription today for his pain killers. I'll be picking up tomorrow. :clap:

    I'm sorry Kiefer has bad arthritis. But I'm glad you found a cheaper source of drugs for him.

    Thanks Charles. It's hard to see him limping at only 5 yrs old. But this will sure help the pocket book, since it's maintenance for the rest of his life.

    Absolutely he's worth it. He's worth the higher prices. But still, the pocket book is thankful.

    Yes, I learnded about that when Buck developed heart disease....his Rx was 1/4 of the price through Costco and I was surprised that it was my vet that told me!

    Even though we don't have any pets -- that is good information.

    We don't have a Costco anywhere near us or I would tell a couple of our neighbors about this as they have dogs.

    Sorry to hear that Kiefer has arthritis.

    Wait...get his meds on the streets of Oakland? LOL, boy, he'd either feel no pain, or wouldn't care!

    When our akita was fighting a lung tumor, he was on a controled narcotic to battle the cough and the pain. We used to get his script filled at the local supermarket.

    Will have to keep Costco in mind just in case.

    I know that Walgreens will fill prescriptions that animals take if they are also human meds. Don't think they carry vet meds, but they might by now.
