When it comes to our pets, we would do almost anything for them. Our furry friends deserve the very best because they give us a present all year round, their unconditional love. There is one thing in common when it comes to be pet owners, the high vet bills. Never the less, our furry friends are worth every penny but at times it’s hard to fabricate the cost of some visits. I have put together a list of cost effective care for your pet. If you have any other suggestions, I would love to hear them as well.

Alternative options

I love that local animal shelters and organizations have joined in on offering low cost vaccinations.

Most organizations also offer neutering, spaying and other options as well. Check with your local shelter to see what they offer.

Payment options 

I have always heard about Care Credit and Pet insurance when it comes to our furry friends.

I would do research and also speak with your local vet about both of these options.



Ask around

I am a firm believer of word of mouth for almost everything.

For the most part, the most helpful advice can come from someone you know and their experience. The power of technology has allowed us to connect and network with folks from around the world.

Holiday specials 

My local vet always offers discounted prices on upcoming visits or procedures during the holiday season.

Find out what your vet is doing and then you can plan ahead to see if it is something your furry friend needs.


How do you manage paying for your pets vet bills? Let me know if any of these options work for you and your furry family.
