Albertsons Companies is now making it possible for pet owners to fill prescriptions for their furry friends at more than 1,700 pharmacies inside Safeway, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, Acme, Tom Thumb, and United Supermarkets.

The offering not only enables pet parents to fill prescriptions easily but also allows them to pay less than what vet offices typically charge.

“Nearly 30 percent 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 executive vice president 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."

Pet parents can expect to access a variety of affordable pet medications, including OTC tick, flea and heartworm preventatives, at Albertsons Cos. pharmacies for as much as 80% less through a Pet Health Savings Card.

To incentivize customers to leverage the service, Albertsons Cos. is offering up to $75 in grocery gift cards to customers after they fill their fifth prescription with Albertsons Cos. pharmacy.

Additionally, the company is piloting two pet health service programs, Penny Paws and Fuzzy, in Texas and California to help make routine veterinary care more accessible to pet owners.

Penny Paws is a mobile vaccine clinic that visits towns throughout Texas and aims to offer communities low-cost, basic healthcare such as vaccinations, heartworm testing, heartworm prevention and microchipping. Meanwhile, Fuzzy is a video or virtual chat service that is available 24/7. Through the service, pet parents can access a team of veterinarians and address common pet concerns such as digestion, dental hygiene, stress management and prescription medication.
