How to Save at the Vet: Cat Paws on Money

Tips for Budget-Conscious Pet Owners on How to Save

High-quality pet care should never be beyond your reach. We believe that every pet deserves the best of veterinary medicine, and we want to help you give that to them. That's why we’ve gathered some tips for saving some money without compromising care.


Pinching Pennies with Preventative Care

We can’t stress enough how important preventative care and wellness exams are for your pet. It’s important to remember that the cost of preventive services is much less than the cost of treatment after your pet develops a serious condition. Catching illness early means treatment is more effective and faster, which saves you time and cost. Not to mention it your pet’s quality of life and overall wellbeing don't suffer either!

Protecting Against the Unexpected with Pet Insurance

If your pet becomes severely ill or suffers an accident, the last thing you want to worry about is the cost of their medical needs. With pet insurance, you can rest easy knowing that much of their costs will be covered, so they can get the care they need without compromise. There are several pet insurance plans out there, so you’re bound to find one that suits your needs. Well-known pet insurance companions include Trupanion, Healthy Paws Pet Insurance, and Embrace Pet Insurance among many others.

CareCredit for A Convenient, Easy Way to Pay

Much like how you use a Health Savings Account card for your health care needs, you can use a CareCredit credit card specifically for your pet’s procedures, medications, and more. However, unlike an HSA, the CareCredit’s card functions as a credit card that requires monthly payments. CareCredit is helpful in budgeting out your vet bills, as well as great for unexpected emergency costs.

We hope our page is useful in helping you save on cost without compromising care. If you have any questions, please let us know!
