Now that I have dogs again, I’m realizing just how much money it costs to be a pet owner.
Everyone tells you to think about veterinarian bills, but this is just part of the battle.
There’s also the concern of food and general supplies like bedding and carriers/cages. I wouldn’t want to have pets either if I couldn’t even afford additional things like toys and gasoline for trips to the park in the car. I guess if you live really close to the nearest park and don’t have to pay too much for pet food, you could make it work. Thankfully I’m not so strapped for cash that I’m forced to go without when it comes to my pets. Both of my dogs are over 40 pounds so they eat a lot of food. I get the massive bags for bulk prices at the warehouse store I subscribe to, but that doesn’t cover flea and tick medication and heartworm drugs. My dogs also tend to get a lot of anxiety whenever we’re not at home, as evidenced on our home surveillance cameras. A friend of ours recommended that we try pet CBD products from this locally owned pet store as they were having a sale that week. At regular prices, pet CBD products can get a little pricey. I was happy that they worked so well for our dogs, but I was also a little worried about sourcing them regularly at those prices. Luckily, I found an online source for pet CBD products to use whenever the local pet store isn’t running a sale of their own. Right now they have their pet CBD products on sale for 30% off the normal price.
