Winn-Dixie Pharmacies Now Filling Pet Prescriptions

We don’t have Winn-Dixie stores in our area but we know that many of you do so we wanted to pass along this news. Winn-Dixie is now offering a full-service pet prescription program in all of its pharmacies, a great way to save time (and often money).

In partnership with Center Pet Pharmacies, all Winn-Dixie pharmacies say that they can now accept and fill ALL pet medications currently available in the market. Prescriptions are available for Winn-Dixie pharmacy fulfillment by dropping them off or having them called in by a veterinarian.

Most crossover prescriptions — human generics also used for pets — are filled in the same day, and special compounds typically only within 24 to 48 hours. Pet prescriptions fulfilled by Winn-Dixie will also include personalized instructions similar to when human prescriptions are filled and delivered.

Adding Special Flavoring

We all know how difficult it is to administer medications that taste bad; some dogs will allow you to hide pills in food but some won’t. Giving your cat a pill can be very challenging. Winn-Dixie is offering compounding with special flavors such as bacon flavoring to make the pill taking more pleasant for your pets.

“Anyone with a pet has attempted to mask medication by smearing peanut butter, hiding a pill in a doggie treat, or sneaking it in their food, but our furry friends are usually smarter than that,” said John Fegan, pharmacy vice president for Winn-Dixie. “The flavoring program makes administering easier, and more important, ensures pets are adhering to their medication and getting the treatment they need.”
