VIDEO: Vet Smarts
Dr. Marty Becker answers Bark’s questions about health care on a budget.

With the recession, we’re all feeling the pinch, and according to Dr. Marty Becker, one place some guardians are cutting corners is by skipping visits to the vet. Waiting until you know there’s a problem can be penny-wise and pound-foolish. Dr. Becker makes a pretty compelling argument for why wellness visits are so important for your dog and your wallet. He also pitches a few low-cost, at-home strategies for keeping your dog healthy--plus, an opportunity to save $20 on your next visit.

Dr. Becker’s visit with Bark is part of an effort to raise awareness about the importance of vet visits through a campaign called Help Your Pet, Get to the Vet. Visit www.gettothevet.com for a chance to win a $20 voucher toward your next vet visit. Vouchers will be awarded everyday on the hour from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. through February 28, 2009.
