Owning a pet can be extremely rewarding, but it can also be expensive. Pets should be a blessing, not a financial burden. Check out these tips to cut pet care expenses without compromising your pet’s health and well-being.

• Avoid high cost of kennels or dog walkers by tapping into your network of pet-loving friends and family to help with pet sitting or dog walking.

• Spay or neuter your pet to avoid your pet having a litter you can’t afford. Pet Community Center offers low-cost spay and neuter services.

• Take to the Internet for instructions on making your own pet toys from materials you already own.

• Consider buying pet food in bulk from a pet supply store, a wholesale club or even online supplier. And avoid over feeding your pet, which can lead to obesity.

Don’t skip the vet. Skipping vaccinations or flea and tick medications can lead to costlier investments down the road if your pet develops an infection.
