Small Cutbacks = Big Savings
So we have covered insurance, now its time to look at fun and often creative ways to entertain, feed and house your pet on the cheap - resulting in big savings for you.
Medicine: Treatment: Where do you go to get the essentials, the worming treatment, the flee application, grooming products? The list is seemingly endless, yet the answer seems pretty generic. The majority of people still purchase such things from the vet's practice, or their local pet-shop, both of which cast an absolute packet. With the average pack of flee application now costing £12.00, it time we looked elsewhere. Look no further than online, in-fact why not have a browse after you have read this! Also offered by such sites is prescription medication, as long as you can provide the actual prescription signed by vet, you're on to an absolute winner, leaving your purse a lot heavier!
Food: Owners generally moan about the cost of their pet food bill. Yet many of us continue to buy as they go, a very, very expensive way of doing it. By changing the way you shop for your furry friends food to buying in bulk, really will save you a lot of money. Many retailers will also deliver free of charge, or for a very small fee. Also dong just assume that because you but the 'expensive' pet food that is has some magical ingredients that the others don't. the reality is that they the major difference is often the packaging, NOT the contents. Look at the ingredients of the back of packs and see for yourself!
Housing: if you are not already registered, go, register now on your local free cycle network. An excellent network of free stuff. Yep..100% free, it offers a variety of products, you may be cautious and worried that it will only be tat, when the reality is that the items are bulky, unwanted and ready for collection! Check out the pet section, for beds, hutches, runs and whatever else is unwanted; remember someone's rubbish may well be pooches treasure!
