How to Save Money on Pet Care

By NewsUSA  

Owning a pet has a lot of perks, but caring for one can take its toll on your wallet. According to the ASPCA, owning a dog or cat can cost up to $1,000 in the first year, and many people end up spending much more. The good news is you can cut your pet care expenses without compromising your pet´s health and well-being. Here are a few ways you can save money and keep your pet healthy.

 

1. Don´t skip the vet. If you´re trying to save money, it can be tempting to cut back on veterinary visits. But according to Julie Ciarmella of the American Veterinary Medicine Association, "an investment in preventive healthcare can reduce your longterm pet healthcare costs." Why? Because regular check-ups can prevent expensive complications down the road.

2. Get by with a little help from your friends. Dog-walking, pet-sitting and kennel services can be some of the most expensive aspects of owning a pet. You can save money by taking the "you scratch my dog´s back, I´ll scratch your cat´s chin" approach and tapping into a network of other pet owners in your area. Neighborhood dog parks are great places to meet like-minded pet lovers; or, you could try good old-fashioned advertising.

3. Choose high-quality pet products that give you more value for your money.

Reaching for the cheapest product can feel like a thrifty move, but you may be surprised by the impact "cheap" products can have on your budget. For example, cheaper clay cat litter needs to be changed more often, so cat owners go through bag after bag. World´s Best Cat Litter is an alternative that harnesses the concentrated power of corn for long-lasting performance. You´ll use less litter, replace it less often and save money in the long run.

In the end, remember that what your pet needs most is love. Keep things simple and invest in high-value products where it matters, and you´ll be on your way to a pet care budget that works for you.
