Though we all love our pets, we have to admit that pet care is quite expensive. Here are 6 ways to trim down costs.
The first step is to adopt, don’t shop. Buying a pet can be extremely expensive but by adopting you’re not only cutting down on costs right out of the gate, but you’ll also save an animal’s life.
Either build an emergency fund or get pet insurance starting today. You never know when you’ll need it, and trust us, you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars out of nowhere where you could have been prepared. Plus, if you have an emergency saving account for this, if you end up not using the money, it’s still yours to do whatever you please with it.
Ask your vet for discount plans, too. They may save you a lot of money in the long run, especially if you have a lot of pets with different needs. By buying these, as long as you’re using an in-network doctor, you could save on a whole host of services such as emergency visits and vaccinations.
Looking for a pet sitter? Ask friends and family first before looking for one. But if you have to, check out Rover, where you’ll be able to cost compare services.
It’s also time to learn how to groom your own pets. Grooming costs could add up over time, so check online for free resources such as video tutorials. Take it one day at a time and, eventually, you’ll get the hang of it. The same goes for toys. Don’t pay extra for store-bought toys and make your own at home- your little DIY project!
