How can I save money on pet supplies?
Anyone who has a pet knows very well that this can easily incur quite a few costs. After the one-off costs of purchase and neutering or sterilisation, it is far from over.
Ongoing costs arise, for example, from worming, veterinary costs and, if necessary, pet care – because not everyone has enough time to give pets the attention they undoubtedly deserve.
While most of these things are essential for the health and well-being of your pet, other aspects can save you a lot of money with a few little tricks.
- • Good thing there are plenty of savings to be made on pet food and equipment like collars, toys and grooming. Read our savings tips for pet owners and browse through the deals of most popular pet shops to get the most out of your budget.
- • When buying pet food, go for the shop’s own brand instead of expensive branded products. The ingredients are usually the same, but the price makes all the difference.
- • Don’t overwhelm your four-legged friend with toys. Most of the time, he or she has two or three favourite things anyway that he likes to play with all day long – often it’s not a toy at all, but an old teddy bear, shipping boxes or a tennis ball. So there is no need to buy even more toys. After all, they should not just lie in the corner.
- • Instead of spending money on regular small animal care, why not ask your neighbours? Who knows, maybe the old lady next door will be happy to take care of your pet!
