We’re not just talking about dogs in this article, but the pet industry as a whole. Having pets is certainly one of the greatest joys in life. However, buying food for them can add up to a pretty tidy sum every month. With that said, there are many ways that you can save money when buying pet food and we will now take a look at some of them.
The first tip is to look for pet food coupons. You can easily find these coupons in pet magazines, the newspapers, on various websites etc. You should also look on the social media pages of major pet food manufacturers and you’ll often find printable coupons there as well. By finding and using as many coupons as possible, you can save tens and even hundreds of pounds. Most pet store suppliers will put out offers throughout the course of the year, so it’s really just a case of keeping your eye on these areas.
Next, you should shop at pet stores that have a rewards club. This is particularly helpful if you buy the same pet food every week or month. Once you shop at a pet store with a rewards club, you will start earning points every time you buy pet food and soon you’ll be able to get free pet food with your points or at least a percentage off.
A third option is to buy your pet food in bulk as it will be cheaper to do so. You should compare the costs for regular sized bags of pet food to larger sizes and see how much you’d save by buying in bulk. You can even purchase bulk pet food online and have it delivered straight to your doorstep.
Next, you can make your own pet food instead of buying. You may have discovered that it is cheaper to cook your own food than to buy food all the time. This also applies to pet food and you can easily learn how to make tasty dishes for your pet from pet channels on YouTube or various pet websites. If you’re not sure about making entire meals, you can start by making a few treats.
Lastly, you can consider feeding your pet a raw food diet. Of course, this depends on your pet but if you have a dog, there are many studies that show dogs generally benefit from having a raw diet of meat and vegetables. Raw food diets are much cheaper which will definitely save your wallet while improving the health of your pet.
In summary, we have just looked at a couple of ways that you can save money on pet food. So, be sure to explore some of the options listed above and you’ll be able to feed your beloved pet on a budget.
