there are drops for cleaning out the ears, and i found these really neat q-tip type things you crack it and it has cleaning solution for around the eyes. you can also brush their teeth yourself, and cut their nails. just ask for someone at a pet store to tell you how to use the clippers or the toothbrush if you have never done it yourself. if you do all that yourself than you really only have to take them in for their yearly shots/exam. or you could take them to a petsmart (if there is one near you) or a local pet store and some of those will do the cleanings etc for you much cheaper than a vet.
