How to Reduce the Costs of Pet Care

 As a responsible pet owner, we have an obligation to care for our pet family members. Here are some tips to help you save some money on health care for your pet.

Spay or neuter your pet to prevent serious health problems. Spaying females can greatly reduce the possibilities of mammary tumors later in life (often malignant) and eliminates the possibilities of pyometra (life threatening infection of the uterus) or ovarian cancer. Neutering your male eliminates the possibility of testicular tumors and will greatly reduce the likelihood of prostate problems that are very common in older, non-neutered dogs. You will save the cost of replacing carpeting and furniture as neutered male cats are much less likely to spray and neutered male dogs are much less likely to urine mark in your home. The difference in rabies tag fees in Charlotte County - $30 every year for an intact pet compared to only $12 for a spayed/neutered pet, will often more than offset the cost of the surgical procedure.
