What does a pet owner do when their precious fur baby needs veterinary care that is way beyond their budget?
The cost for an annual trip to the vet is already staggering for some and becomes a real hardship if the pet needs any type of care beyond a routine yearly exam.
Good news . . . help is out there!! I've come up with the following list after doing some research.
