Olive (below) and Bella (above). Two dogs that have captured my heart… and my wallet. Bella is the 3 pound Chihuahua above who thinks she owns the place. Olive is the other dog, who is the craziest mix of dogs, that I won’t even get started on what she “is”.
I love both of my dogs dearly, but providing for them can get pricy especially with prices going higher and higher every trip it seems. Barkonomics: Tips for Frugal Fidos was written by Paris Permenter and John Bigley of DogTipper.com to help dog parents provide for their dog without breaking your family budget.
The authors Paris Permenter and John Bigley have complied an insightful and helpful nuggets of over 300 money saving tips for dog owners who wish to be financial secure in caring for Fido.
Barkonomics covers topics including the cots of living with a dog, food and treats, training and exercise, dog suppose and accessories, and much more. My favorite section has been over veterinary care. Many people believe that by going to low cost dog clinics like LuvMyPet does not provide proper care for your pet. However, if your pet only needs vaccines, low cost clinics are a perfect solution for your pet. The same applies for spay/neutering services. The low animal services like ASPCA also provide superior services at a lower cost than your regular vet.
The ASPCA charges $60 to spay a dog whereas my local veterinary charges nearly $400 for the same service.
