DIY puppy care is the way to cut costs without eliminating quality care. Do you realize how much you already do for your pooch? We do, so here are some ways you can cut back on overspending for your family pet saving a little along as you go.
Perform All The DIY Puppy Care You Can
Brushing your dog’s teeth regularly is a very inexpensive way to save money. In fact, the cost of dental cleaning alone is crazy. According to, pets.costhelper.com, “A dog teeth cleaning typically costs $70 to $350, depending on whether pre-anesthetic blood work is done as well as the difficulty of the job. Which might include the amount of build-up on the teeth and under the gum line and whether periodontal disease is present.”
DIY grooming is a piece of cake as long as you set up a schedule and stick to it. For instance, an infestation of fleas, and ticks, along with matted fur can be costly when you show up at the groomer. Instead, detangle her coat each day and check for flea dirt before it becomes a scratching financial mess.
Price Matching At Your Local Pet Stores
Price matching at your local pet stores is a great way to lower costs when other companies have your regular products on sale. To take advantage of this, be sure you sign up as members of your local pet stores. Not all of them offer a discounted membership but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
Pet insurance can help offset the cost of caring for your puppy as well. The cost of everyday puppy care is bad enough, in comparison though, emergency situations run you straight to the poor house. Check out this video for great tips one family now follows to save money taking care of their dog.
