Some pet websites are owned by vets who use the sites and the anonymity of the net as a way to drive business their way. More than once I've come across articles that tell pet owners how important it is to have your dog vaccinated REGULARLY, undergo healthcare exams, etc - stuff which earns the vets a considerable amount of money. Much as preventive care could save you a lot of cash in case of an infection, the fees you pay the vet could add up to ridiculous amounts of money if the pet never does get sick. So, how often do you think one should take their pet to the vet. Once a year? Two years? Or never unless the pet gets sick?
