Yes they're adorable, but boy can the costs add up for our pets. You can save if you know where to go.
The PetMD clinic at the Arizona Animal Welfare League has some great deals on pet care.
They offer low cost non-emergency vet services that can save you up to half off what you'd pay elsewhere.
For example they charge $30 for an office visit.
Other vets we checked range from $40 to $60 and that's just for the office visit.
It will cost you $200 for a routine dental visit for your dog at PetMD.
Other places we called will charge you anywhere from $250 to more than $400.
We can't forget vaccines.
I called around and most vets charge for the vaccine, plus you still have to pay the office visit so you're looking at paying at least $60 for a simple rabies vaccine.
You'll pay $15 at PetMD’s vaccine clinic.
The clinic is only open Wednesday through Saturday and their vaccine and microchip clinics are once every three weeks.
So this is a great way to keep your pets healthy and your wallet full.
