Pets provide us with so much affection and unconditional love that it would be gratifying to find ways to improve our relationship with them in the coming new year. At the top of almost everyone’s resolution list is to find ways to save money. Pet owners can help keep veterinary costs low by following a few simple guidelines in the new year.
First, keep your pets up to date on important vaccinations and parasite prevention. It is much less expensive to prevent a disease than it is to treat it. Second, try not to procrastinate and miss veterinary exams and visits. If your pet is injured or ill, delaying veterinary attention could actually lead to higher expenses!
