Veterinary Secrets How to Drastically Slash Your Pet Care Costs

Introduction Hi! I’m Christy Carnes and I was FORCED to discover how to get pet food, heartworm, flea and tick prevention, and medications FREE or as inexpensively as possible. I also had to learn how to cure all common pet ailments, as cheaply as possible. The good news is that now you can do all this too. Heartbreaking circumstances that I couldn't take anymore drove me to it. Let me explain... For many years I worked in the Veterinary Profession, PLUS I’ve been very involved with Pet Rescue for over 25 years. Some time ago, I "semi-retired" and left the

How to Save a Fortune on Pet Care Costs country to help with pet rescue and recovery programs in Third World Countries. When I started working in these poor foreign countries, I found it more urgent to continue discovering the least expensive ways to provide routine medical care, plus remedies for all common diseases, conditions and minor injuries. I see poverty stricken owners and children bring their dogs and cats to our spay and neuter clinics, grinning from ear to ear, proud that they are doing the right thing for their pet, but...

Many of these pets have severe mange, parasites, tick fever, hot spots, heartworms and countless other problems that the owners don't have money to treat. The owners are willing to treat them, but they don't know how, and they have very little money. They need help. Fortunately, now it's easy and inexpensive to give them the

How to Save a Fortune on Pet Care Costs help and knowledge they need. We also have volunteers picking up the strays and injured pets in the streets and dirt roads at an alarming rate. These pets aren’t even fortunate enough to have owners. We have people willing to care for them, but very little financial resources. We can't afford to take them all to the veterinary clinic, so we have to improvise and do the best we can with what we have so we can help more of them. This is where I really put my veterinary experience to work. I know how to treat almost anything very inexpensively. As things come up that I don't know how to easily treat, I will make phone calls to veterinarians and do massive medical research until I come up with easily affordable solutions to help these people and their pets. Don’t worry, I also tell you when you should go to the vet.

How to Save a Fortune on Pet Care Costs After many years of this, I started making up simple instruction sheets with various inexpensive and easy treatments to hand out to the pet owners, caretakers and our volunteers as they need them. Soon I had tons of these instruction sheets with inexpensive cures that the owners or foster families could do themselves with little or no cost. The other volunteers started suggesting that I combine them all into a book so that I could help even more people with their own pets and help more rescue organizations be able to help more animals, so that’s how this program came into being. This program, which includes many online “how to” videos, is intended to teach you how to save any way you can on all aspects of pet care costs without compromising the quality of care or feeding of your pets. These are the methods I have used for many

How to Save a Fortune on Pet Care Costs years with both my own pets and in the pet rescue organizations I work with. These methods come from years of working in the veterinary industry and also from learning tricks breeders and pet rescuers use to save money whenever possible. With the way the World economy is right now, the average pet owner needs all the help they can get.

Many people,

especially Veterinarians, are upset with me for exposing this information. You will quickly find out that I will not withhold any secrets from you and I don’t care if I step on toes. Pet owners need help to save money anywhere they can. Pet rescuers who can save money, can rescue more pets.

This is a win/win for everyone involved,

including the animals. It WILL cut into your Veterinarian’s profits though. Oh well, you can’t please everyone.
