Our new initiative is already helping our clients with the cost of treatment for their pets with long term illness.
The Save£Sound initiative involved reviewing and reducing the price of many of the drugs that are used for treating long term conditions such as arthritis, heart and kidney disease, diabetes, skin problems and long term eye disease.
One of our clients, Mrs Price has two dogs with “Dry Eye” which is a very painful and lifelong condition. Treatment is imperative for the welfare of Polly and Charlie. The new scheme is reducing the cost of the special eye ointment that they need.
Another client, Mrs McKenzie, has one dog, Kelly, with arthritis, and another dog, Ollie, with heart disease. The bill easily added up with all the medication that these adored dogs required and Mrs McKenzie has, till now, resorted to the rigors of getting medication from the internet pharmacies. “The surgery’s new prices are now competitive with the internet and I no longer have the hassle of arranging for prescriptions or the problems of medication running out when the delivery was delayed”
This is a Companion Care companywide initiative which recognises that the cost of medication is a major factor when pet owners decide whether to treat their pets when they developed chronic health problems.
Our vet Chris commented “We perceived, particularly with the economy as it is, that many pets were not getting the treatment that they needed and that this represented a silent animal welfare issue for pets all over the UK. The scheme means that pets requiring on-going medication will now have improved quality of life and live for longer, which ultimately is the aim of vets and pet owners alike.”
