Call Your Veterinarian for Special Financing Options

Your local veterinary clinic may be able to arrange special financing options for you. Even if you pay the regular fee for a spay or neuter, remember that it is a one-time cost that brings a lifetime of benefits.  Sterilizing your pet not only helps the pet overpopulation problem, but also reduces the risk of your pet succumbing to future health issues. Most often, pets need less calories when they are spayed and neutered, this translates into lower feeding costs. Spaying and neutering is a real bargain considering all of the benefits.
