Our Pharmacies Now Carry Pet Medications!

Our pharmacies now carry pet medications! Pets are important members of the family and now our pharmacies can help with your pet medication needs.

We have everything your pet needs from flea and tick medications, both prescription and over the counter, as well as heart worm prevention, pain/inflammation medication, and thyroid medications. Did you know that many pet medications are the same as those used for humans? We carry a lot of these items every day and have access to order many more.

Wondering what Flea and tick options are available for your pet? Looking for prescription or over the counter products? Here is a guide to few of the ones we carry.

Seresto collar: The Seresto collar works for 8 months and no prescription is needed. It repels and kills fleas and ticks on contact. The flea or tick doesn’t need to bite your pet for the medication to work. It comes in three sizes, cat, small dog (0-18 lbs), and large dog (18+ lbs). Seresto collars are water proof if your pet takes 1 bath or swim each month.1

Bravecto: Bravecto is a prescription chew that only need to be given every 3 months. It kills 99% of fleas and ticks within 24 hours.2

  When shopping for your pets in the over the counter area, beware of common over the counter products that are used in humans. Some of these products are toxic to your pet.  NSAIDs (Ibuprofen and naproxen) or Tylenol (acetaminophen) are highly toxic in both cats and dogs. Some allergy medications such as Benadryl, Claritin and Zyrtec are considered safe in dogs but can cause drowsiness. Always consult your veterinarian before starting any over the counter therapy for your pets.3

Another ingredient to watch out for if you are selecting an over the counter medication for your dog is Xylitol. Xylitol is a natural substance that is used as a common sugar substitute because of its low glycemic index. This substance is also found in many OTC products including but not limiting to cough syrups, digestive aids, vitamins, supplements and allergy medicines. It is also commonly found in sugar free gum. Most pieces of gum contain 1 gram, so only 9 pieces are toxic to most dogs. Very low doses of this substance can harm your dog and can cause hypoglycemia, liver failure and seizures. If you believe your pet has ingested this substance, it’s always best to call the Pet Poison Helpline (1-800-213-6680).

    So whether you are looking for a prescription item or an over the counter product, visit your local Market 32 or Price Chopper Pharmacy and let our Pharmacist take care of it for you.

We love all things local, and one of our favorite sectors of local food is local beer. There are so many different brews, flavors, and styles, and so many stories to tell! That’s why we’re embarking on a new home.grown. adventure: to bring you fresh craft beer stories each month from our Northeast region; the best region in the United States if you ask us!

Up next: Saranac Brewery!

In 1985, Saranac 1888, named after the iconic Saranac Railroad, was the first concoction to don the brewery name. The Saranac Railroad line connected Utica to the Adirondacks. Similarly, Saranac’s Utica location connects with the Adirondacks through the tastes and experiences provided by their brews.

In fact, back in 1991, Saranac’s Adirondack Lager was awarded the top premium lager at the Great American Beer Festival, chalking the Lager up as Saranac’s first brewing home run.  Naturally, the brewery focused in on making this beer their main priority for the time being.

Today, Saranac Brewery has a plethora of beverages showcasing their name. Tropical Storm, an unfiltered, hazy IPA with wheat, oats, and fruity notes is a fan favorite. Their new IPA 100 is an easy-drinking brew with half the calories, yet full-flavor and smooth taste of a standard American IPA. Finally, Strawberry Tart is a wheat ale with the perfect balance of sweet and sour. The drinks hazy-gold flow comes from the use of real strawberries, creating an inviting, fruity aroma.
