Whether you’re getting a new pet or just looking for ways to cut down on your current pet expenses…these tips will help you save money!
Pet food: This is a recurring expense, and one of the easiest things to budget for! Pet stores have various sales and discounts throughout the year, so you should always check for those whenever you go shopping for toys and other pet items. Sometimes, if pet food is set to expire, pet stores will offer a discount!
Hygiene: Taking your furry friend to the groomer is an expense that can drain your wallet…if you’re not careful. If you’re on a tight budget, you should consider doing some of the basic care yourself. This includes brushing your pet’s fur and teeth regularly, giving your dog a bath when necessary, and clipping your pet’s nails as needed.
Vacationing: If you have to leave your pet behind when you go out of town, kennels are usually the go-to option. However, the cost of leaving your pet in a kennel can be expensive if you’re planning to be gone for an extended period of time. Before you reserve a space at the kennel, you should check with family and friends who may be happy to watch your pets while you’re away!
Veterinary services: This is an important part of responsible pet care – but it can be costly. A great way to promote your pet’s health (and save money) is to take your pet in for regular wellness checks. This will allow you to catch an issue early, before it develops into a more dangerous and expensive problem.
