Owning a pet can be an exhilarating experience and an expensive one at the same time. Here are a few ways to save money on pet supplies.
1. Do-it-yourself Toys
Pets love toys like anything but more than that they love playing with you. DIY toys is the way to go about it. Whether you spend $50 on an expensive fancy ball or put a knot on your sweater to play tug with your pet, your pet is going to be just as happy. You can also fill an old colorful sock with beans or marbles and tie it to the ceiling to keep them occupied for a good chunk of time. Your pet’s favorite toy is the one that involves you playing with them. So there is no point in spending extra money on pet toys and save on that front.
2. Food puzzles
You can also make your own food puzzles. Nothing like a mind boggling puzzle to stimulate you pets brain. Your pet is not only going to enjoy their meals while playing through these puzzles but will also learn to eat at a slower pace.
3. Home-made treats
You don’t have to be a professional chef to bake some fresh, healthy, home-made cookies for your daughter. This will not only help you save money but you will also know what exactly is used to make those treats. There are also plenty of fruits and vegetables to choose from and they can actually be pretty great for your dog. Let it be bananas, blueberries or apples, just make sure, your pet doesn’t consume them in excess, as they might turn out to be toxic.
4. DIY Dog Beds
You can totally save up by making a dog bed on your own instead of spending a decent chunk to get it from the market. You can use old T-shirts and clothes to lay the foundation and if your pet is bigger in size, you don’t even have to worry about sewing it.
5. Home – Grooming
You don’t have to spend extra by taking your pet to a groomer. Just invest in grooming tools once and you can make use of them for months. You can start with bathing your pet every day to keep them clean and tidy. Buy a pair of clippers to trim their nails on weekly basis and a nice comb to help them stay flea free.
