Thrifty Thursday: Ways Save on Pets (Guest Post)

Since we have a new puppy, I thought a guest post on ways to save money on pets was in order. 

We all know that our furry friends are not cheap!  But they are part of the family and we love them so we want to do what’s best to take care of them!

Here are some ways to save on your pet’s needs:

  • Take advantage of free rabies shot clinics.
  • Keep pets indoors – this prevents injuries and disease which equals no vet bills.
  • Check to see if your veterinarian participates in any low cost spay/neuter programs.
  • Sign up for the Publix Pet Club!
  • Make your own homemade dog food.
  • Get a FREE Pet Examfrom Banfield (Petsmart) clinics! (New patients only)
  • I try to post EVERY free sample / coupon / rebate on pet products/food I find.  I have a cat, so I’m constantly on the lookout for ways to save on pet stuff!  (Which means, you need to follow this blog!)

Here are coupons, free samples and rebates on pet products!

  1. Saving on pets is definitely a hot topic! My FB followers were just discussing this the other day.

  2. I get my animals shots at the Humane Society. You can get a 3 year rabies shot for $10!

  3. Love pet-related posts!

    I could write a ton about this, but I won’t clutter up your blog. She had a lot of great tips!

    Don’t forget that if you print the coupons for Purina she linked, save the weight circles from the bags. They can be redeemed for gift cards, rebate checks, or stuff. Or several shelters take them as donation.

    • I didn’t know about the Purina circles! All these years with a kitty…

      I’m always looking for great guest posts. I don’t know too many tricks for pets either. Just let me know.

      • Thanks, I can definitely write a lot…not sure any of it would qualify as great. :) If I come up with anything worth sharing, I’ll definitely let you know.

        Here’s the link to the weight circle thing BTW. http://purinaproclub.com/
        You join the ProClub (free) and then they’ll send everything you need to mail in the circles you’ve collected.

        • Great topics, good writing :-)

          Thanks for the Purina link! I’m going to look more into that this weekend
