Saving a Little Money on Pet Care

Who wouldn’t like to save a little cash now and again? When it comes to pet care, you can do just that without sacrificing your pet’s health or wellness in the least. Use these tips from a veterinarian Derby to accomplish it: 

Practice Prevention, Not Treatment

Preventative medicine is cheaper than treatment, every time. Have your pet wear year-round pest-control products to ward away fleas, ticks, worms, and other dangerous critters. Keep them updated with vaccinations against distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, Lyme disease, and others. 

Use the Proper Portion Size

Overfeeding a pet wastes food. It also contributes to obesity, which can be troublesome and expensive to reverse later in life. Ask your vet what kind of portion size will work best for your animal friend–it’s good for their waistline and your wallet! 

Adopt, Don’t Shop! 

Before you even get a pet, there is a good way to save money: adopt them from a shelter or rescue organization, rather than purchasing them from a pet store or breeder where the price tag will surely be higher. You’ll save a life and a bit of money.
