Health & Happiness

As we struggle to find balance in our own lives with hectic schedules, money troubles, and other problems, it’s easy to push our pet’s health aside.

However, by jeopardizing their well-being, either accidentally or on purpose, we’re really only creating other issues that will cause more stress (and financial worries) later on. This month, we’ve compiled some great cost-effective articles and tips to help!

Pets often feel the strains of our own stress. Aromatherapy, an ancient practice dating back thousands of years, is becoming a modern-day technique practiced by pet groomers and owners alike.

Are Your Routine Changes Distressing Your Pet?

In today’s chaotic world, combined with the unsteady state of the economy, more and more people are being forced to alter their lifestyles – whether that means taking on a second job to make ends meet or cutting back on little luxuries.

Regardless of the personal sacrifices, the effects of our stressors are trickling down to our pets. Whether our pets are being left alone for longer periods of time, not getting an extra 20 minutes of exercise, eating lesser quality food, or being the recipients of our vented frustrations, it’s important not to compromise the health of our pets, as the long-term effects can be very harmful.

Wallet-Friendly Ways to
Keep Your Pet Healthy

Are you a pet owner struggling in today’s economy? You’re not alone; as our country’s economy slips further into recession and unemployment rates are at the highest in more than a decade, many pet owners are being forced to give their dog or cat the best care they can afford on a limited budget.

Though some may manage this by buying fewer treats and doing more grooming at home, some veterinarians say they’re seeing some pet owners skipping checkups and even cutting back on medications in order to make ends meet. What some pet owners aren’t aware of is the fact that they could be putting their pet’s health at risk.

When to pay or when to save on pet health care

A Pet Owner’s Guide to Savings

  • Consider alternatives to veterinary care. If you can’t afford vet fees, check out humane society or university veterinary clinics which may offer thriftier medical services than private practitioners.
  • Look out for specials such as reduced veterinary-service events sponsored by government agencies or pet stores. Also, some vets will give you a discount if you bring in several pets at once, so bringing in the whole brood for routine check-ups and inoculations will save you time and money
  • Tell your vet if your pet is a stray. Many vets offer a discount if a pet was an abandoned or homeless creature that you rescued. The discount is usually at least 10 percent off.
