- Comment #24 pet care and saving money Submitted by Guest on March 2, 2010 - 14:48. I believe their is a big nutritional diffference between some of the commercial pet foods and the premium and or organic based foods. These foods over the long run will keep our pets healthier. The big benefit is that optimum nutrition excels at keeping pets out of the vet's office. Add in a few extra vet visits a year and your pet care budget is certainly exceeded. The bottom line is that by spending a bit more up front you can save costly vet bills.
- rbaech to keep pet bills low, I have pet insurance. I've seen families have to pay out thousands for sick pets - if they can :(. #WBAsk
We've been talking about pets quite a bit here on Wise Bread: what to feed them, how to treat them affordably, their health and their well-being. We all love our pets, and sometimes, it's hard to justify spending an insane amount of money on them -- especially in this economy.
What are you doing to treat your pet, despite tight funds? Do you opt for homemade options? Are you buying the most affordable brands? Or has there been no change in what you've been doing for your furry (or feathered) friend?
