Cheaper pet prescriptions

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - There is some good news for pet owners.

Pet drug companies are marketing cheaper generic priscriptions. Just like when patents expire for human drugs, the same happens for those made for pets.

One company has two generic drugs with 20 in the process of coming on the market.

Industry spokespeople say about 10 percent of animal drugs are generic.

That could increase to 50 percent in the next 10 years.
