Tip Forty-Five

March 06, 2012

Make it a regular thing.
Regular visits to the vet are the first line of financial defense of your pet care bills. The failure to diagnose early can equate to more treatment bills in the future, so make sure your pet visits the vet on a regular basis. If that doesn't fit your budget, don't make money a reason why you aren't taking your pet to the vet. Search for veterinary colleges in your area and see if they are accepting new patients and offer lower rates. However, make sure that the school is accredited and that the students will be supervised during your pet's check up.

One way to reduce the cost of your pet and vet visits is to take care of some of your pet's needs yourself, such as brushing teeth, trimming claws, grooming on a regular basis and learning how to clean his or her ears.
