The table below shows some ways we've heard and/or found that can save a lot of money for common and somewhat common dog ailments.

Situation

Average Veterinary Charges Money-Saver
Note that veterinary charges vary according to location. For example, a vet in Pasadena, CA will charge many, many times more for a procedure than a veterinarian in Podunk, Iowa.

$18 $Pennies 
Instead of Strongid/Nemex, purchase Pyrantel Pamoate online. Calculate dose according to strength: I've seen 2.5 to 5 mg per pound
