Affordable Pet Care

Affordable pet care is available in many different forms. The first thing that comes into many minds when they think about pet care is insurance, but there are so many more options for you to choose from to provide care for your pets.

Pet Insurance

Insurance is one way to get affordable pet care, but is not always the best. Insurance is good for some people but you often end up having to pay a monthly premium month after month even if your pet is not sick.

Remember most financial experts still don't think that pet insurance is a good buy. Insurance has been shown to add thousands of dollars to the cost of owning a pet over a lifetime.

Care Credit

Care Credit is a credit card that you can use for all sorts of medical expenses, including veterinary care. The nice thing about Care Credit is that you often get a 0% interest rate for up to three years on most veterinary bills.

Also, most veterinary clinics do accept Care Credit, which makes it much easier to obtain than pet insurance.

Emergency Fund

An emergency fund may be the best option for most people because it makes the most financial sense if you have the discipline to save. Basically you set aside a little bit of money each month in order to care for your pet in case they get sick.

Veterinary Discounts

Remember you should always ask if you qualify for a discount when you checkout at the veterinary clinic. Many will give you discounts if you are a senior citizen, have multiple pets, are a loyal client, or a new client.

Another way to get discounts is to ask if you can volunteer to work at the veterinary clinic in exchange for a discount on your bill.

If you put your mind to it, there are many different ways for you to obtain affordable pet care . Whether you choose pet insurance, care credit, an emergency fund, or use veterinary discounts, you should be able to save at least some money off of your bill.
