Financial tips for pet owners

Sometimes providing food, health care and shelter is just not enough. Want to show your deep appreciation for your four-legged friend? Here are four ways to spoil your pet and also protect your finances.

..............................................................................
All in the name of (puppy or kitty) love
1. Get medical insurance
Avoid the vet sticker shock by learning the ins and outs of shopping for a pet health plan.
 
2. Send Rover to obedience school
An undisciplined pooch is a threat to your family, neighbors and homeowners insurance policy.
 
3. Secure proper representation -- hire a pet attorney
The law does not always acknowledge animal rights. Make sure your pet has representation if needed for her day in court.
 
4. Set up Fido for life after (your) death
To bequeath is to have him be well-taken care of even when you're gone.
