La Mesa’s Costco making pet drugs cheaper

by Rick Griffin

The pharmacy at La Mesa’s Costco Wholesale store, 8125 Fletcher Parkway, is now offering pet medications, reports Deborah McElravy, pharmacy manager. Costco may offer a cheaper price for your pet’s medications compared to purchasing directly from a veterinarian because some vets mark-up the cost of prescriptions, McElravy said.

The Costco pharmacy in La Mesa offers a variety of pet medications. Among the most popular pet meds are chewable tablets that can help pets with arthritis with their hip and joint flexibility. To reach the pharmacy at the Costco Wholesale store in La Mesa, call (619) 667-8520. McElravy, a pharmacist since 1974, and an East County resident for more than 30 years, serves on the Grossmont Healthcare District board of directors.
