With the high cost of gas, and it doesn’t look like it’s going down real soon, we all are thinking of ways to save.
Is your pet’s health safe from recession and family cutbacks?
You can triple play your TV, phone and computer. Trade your SUV for a more fuel-efficient vehicle. But what about your pet(s)? Don’t put off needed exams, vaccinations etc.
Wellness clinics are a more cost-saving way to have your dog or cat examined and have the necessary shots given at a reduced cost. Most clinics are set up in pet stores, thus lowering the overhead of the veterinarians running the clinic. As a rule, these clinics do not do any type of surgery, but recommend you see your own vet or an office of your choice.
Wellness clinics provide a needed service for pet owners that cannot afford regular veterinary care for their animals. It allows them to keep their pets up to date with needed shots, heartworm medication, etc.
- Puppy packages – Includes physical exam, deworming (roundworms/hookworms), distemper/parvo and coronvirus vaccines.
- Dog basic package – Includes physical exam, distemper/parvo, rabies and kennel cough vaccines.
- Dog complete packages – Includes physical exam, distemper/parvo, kennel cough and rabies vaccines and HW antigen test.
Of course, not to be left out are the cat owners. The same programs are available for our feline friends.
Also, be on the lookout for fleas and ticks. It’s going to be a very early season. I found a tick on Karma in December. I think there will be a heavy infestation of fleas this year because we never had a good freeze.
One more small pet peeve of mine: I know everyone wants to save butttttt, that being said, please clean up after your dog. I walk the Monon every morning with Karma and I am seeing more and more signs folks are not picking up after their pets. I even found some in my front yard. Bags are cheap; they even provide them in several places on the trail. I use the bags my paper comes in – great way to recycle.
