Adopt From Your Local Shelter
Buying a purebred pooch from a pet store or breeder can be very costly, ranging anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars. But adopting from an animal shelter or pet rescue, your adoption fee may only be just $75 to $150. Not only will you be helping a pet in need, but most shelters spay or neuter and de-worm and vaccinate the animals prior to adoption, which saves you money on those costs.
Make a Trade for Pet Services
Do you have a friend that would willingly watch your beloved pooch while you've got to be out of town in exchange for a batch of your famous ooey gooey butter cookies? Take advantage of that easy trade for saving money on pet services! You can exchange just about anything for pet services (accounting, house cleaning, dental care), so play to your strengths. What you get in return can range from walking your dog a few times a week, to cleaning your pet's teeth (if your friend's a veterinarian).
Shop Around and Compare Pricing
If you're the least bit frugal, you probably already compare prices before going shopping for yourself. Why not do the same when buying for your pet? When purchasing pet food or litter, buying in bulk can save you big money, especially if you have more than one animal at home. Clip coupons from your local newspaper and look for store specials to maximize your savings. Look into an online or mail order store like for your pet's medications, they are typically are much cheaper since they don't have a retail markup.
Don't Pay To Have It Done, Do It Yourself
Vets and groomers can be expensive. Although you have to take your pet in for check-ups and procedures once in a while, you can learn how to handle some of the everyday care yourself. Daily brushing not only leaves your pet with a shiny, lustrous coat, but it also helps clear away dirt and matted fur. Bathe your dog yourself. It may take some getting used to, but it can save you quite a bit in the long run depending on how often your dog needs bathed. You can also ask your vet or groomer to show you how to clip your dog's nails so you can do that at home too.
Practice Preventative Care
Most pets need to get a check-up about once every six months. If you take good care of your cat or dog, those twice-yearly visits will be enough, and you won't have to spend any extra time and money at the vet's office. Waiting until your pet is already sick can turn a $100 veterinarian visit into a $3,000 trip. Follow your vet's recommendations for check-ups so you can nip any potential health problems in the bud.
Invest in a Durable Pet Bed
Sure, you could go to your local supermarket and pick up one of those super expensive pillow dog beds that only last a few months before you have to toss it and buy a new one...
