Many in the Grand Junction area have been cutting back on the health of their little ones, and it's not their children. Many area clinics are seeing big drops in daily visits and warns that trying to save now can end up costing much more later.

There are things you can do yourself to keep the tails wagging but first let your vet help you decide what can wait and what needs to take priority. Vets also say that exercise is extremely important, a tired pet is a happy and healthy pet because they are less likely to be obese which can lead to more serious problems like arthritis, heart and lung disease or even diabetes.

Finally just petting on a regular basis will make them happy and give you the chance to find little lumps and bumps early which can save you big money in the long run.
