Just because thousands and thousands of pets are safely transferred from one destination to another via the airlines, it does not mean that dog owners are without responsible precautionary measures to ensure the safety of their family pet.

Veterinarians care only about the money, right? Sure they have to, but you'd be surprised at how they really feel. Money matters have a lot to do with feelings and ego. In general, vets don't want to talk about money, though if you want to work effectively with your vet, having the dollar discussion may be inevitable.

If you have an cute little puppy running around the house, the last thing you want to see is an accident where the little guy gets cut, poisoned, or stepped on. However, accidents can happen and you should be prepared. Better yet, it is best if you practice safety measures rather than waiting for something bad to happen to your puppy.

There is a lot of advice around for anyone engaged in affiliate marketing, but much of it is un-focused and lacks integration.

Are you looking to buy a used car? Buying the right automobile can be difficult unless you know what to look for. New cars are easier to purchase. However, while going for a used car deal, most of us just see the attractive price and buy it off without even bothering about other important details that we actually need to know.

Nobody talks about it. Everybody keeps their lips very tightly sealed, convinced that theirs is the only child in their class who is still wetting the bed. But bedwetting is far more common than you might think - one in ten six-year olds (10%) and three out of every fourteen-year olds (3%) still haven't quite got the hang of things 100% of the time.

When you are looking for a new car for business use, you have some choices to consider - lease or buy? Both have pros and cons but you need to consider what is going to be most advantageous to your business.

The biggest time problems experienced by business people are interruptions, many of which are self induced.

On the subject of creating a home based small business, it's actually crucial that you learn how to create traffic aimed at your website.

You can find methods for getting people to go to your Internet site, however for our needs I am mainly going to go over successful strategies that deliver results.

Nearly everyone, adults and kids alike, have a natural fondness for cats. They are loving, quiet, and very playful pets that can provide you with years of entertainment. Although most of us have a fondness for cats, that fondness can rapidly diminish when it comes to the litter box. Even the most hardened cat lover may get tired of litter box duty, especially when it comes down to scooping "you know what" from the litter box.

Veterinarians care only about the money, right? Sure they have to, but you'd be surprised at how they really feel. Money matters have a lot to do with feelings and ego. In general, vets don't want to talk about money, though if you want to work effectively with your vet, having the dollar discussion may be inevitable.



The unfortunate truth is that veterinary medicine is expensive. But it is not overpriced. "Expensive" means numerous dollars are required, while "overpriced" is a label that requires placing a value judgement on something that is essentially a value-free, market-determined issue.


If you think that your veterinarian is overpriced, don't punish him or your pet with resentment. Take the market solution and look for a new vet instead.

Because most people, veterinarians included, don't want to talk about money, increasingly doctors discuss only medical matters and let practice managers or others in the office deal with the issue of money and costs. Most veterinarians feel the same way about the issue: They feel bad when clients cannot afford what needs to be done to fix the pet in question.


And although most vets prefer not to talk about money, I am not sure that a blanket policy of avoiding money talk is feasible, or wise, for the doctors. Unless there is no shortage of money, it is impossible to make medical decisions without putting a price tag on them.


What is important, especially now that compensation schemes - particularly in large and corporate practices - are often "production-based," is that veterinarians disclose their financial interest in the case.


It has been well established that doctors are often unable to completely divorce their financial interests from their medical recommendations. This is not because doctors are evil, this is because they are human. Skepticism is always a healthy thing, especially when it is about oneself. Veterinarians should make a practice of questioning their motivations, and welcome the help they can get from their clients.


As the person paying the bill, it's your responsibility to ask for an estimate. Be aware, however, that an estimate is a dual-edged sword. On the one hand, it tells you what to expect. On the other hand, dogs - like any other biological system - have a way of defying the odds on occasion.


Your veterinarian's goal is not to have the treatment come in at exactly the price on the estimate (though that would be pleasant); rather to use the precise treatment necessary to ensure that your dog is fixed up and is out of harm's way with whatever disease, ailment, or problem that is happening at the time.




Werner Vogel is always concerned about his dog's well being. That's why Healthy Dog Food is such a big issue to him. How about you?
