How to display a field from a related module in a detail view in CE?

I'm working with SugarCRM 6.5 CE, and I want to display a field from a related module in a detail view.  Here's an example of what I mean:

Say I have Pets and Owners.  Each Pet has one Owner, but an Owner can be related to many Pets.  Right now, via either a field of type "Relate" or via a "Relationship", I can get the name of the Owner to show up on the detail view of the Pet.  What I want is to be able to show e.g. the address and occupation of the Owner on the Pet's detail view, along with the Owner's name.

This post gives a great example of how to do it in the 7.2 Pro edition with SugarLogic, but sadly that does not appear to be available in SugarCRM 6.5 CE: How can I display a field from one module in a different module?

Is there a way to do this in my version, hopefully without (or with minimal) PHP code editing?  An appropriate answer could also be "yes, here's a plugin that costs less than $50" :).

Big thanks in advance,
