9 Savings Tricks to Care for Your Canine

 

Dog 2

Proud pet parents across the country will agree that owning a dog is priceless. However, there are lots of expenses that come with caring for your favorite canine: The American Kennel Club (AKC) estimates dog owners dish out an average of $2,500 per year on food, veterinary expenses, grooming, pet sitting and more. Additionally, more than one-quarter of dog owners surveyed by the AKC said annual costs “exceeded their expectations.”

To keep your four-legged friend from licking your budget dry, follow these 9 savings tricks!

Sign up for loyalty programs.
Take advantage of rewards programs offered through your favorite pet stores for freebies, special promos and dollars-off future purchases. Petco’s Pals Rewards program gives members $5 for every $100 in purchases, for example, plus special pricing on products throughout the store. Your local pet store might offer a loyalty program or points as well, so inquire about your options.

Double the discount with gift cards.
Sites like GiftCardGranny.com sell pet store gift cards at a big discount – you’re looking at saving up to 25% off Petco gift cards and over 19% off gift cards to PetSmart. Use these discount gift cards as currency and try to pair them with sale items, coupon codes and/or reward bucks to keep your dog care items really cheap!

Look for low-cost clinics.
Routine check ups, vaccinations and emergency care for your four-legged friend can get expensive. However, you may qualify for discount care available at low-cost clinics. Search for a nearby accredited veterinary school through the American Veterinary Medical Association to find out about free care to pet owners in need, or sliding-scale services. You can also find free or low-cost neuter or spay programs using the ASPCA website locator tool. Finally, vaccination clinics are held by select veterinary practices and Petco stores regularly, saving you money on office fees.

Ask for generic meds and buy online.
Don’t assume you have to fill your dog’s prescription at the vet, as prices on pet meds can have markups of over 100 percent in some cases. If your dog doesn’t need treatment immediately, compare med prices online. Sites like 1800PetMeds and PetCareRX offer both generic and brand-name meds for less, plus you can find coupons for extra savings. Search for coupon codes using Coupon Sherpa for such savings as 15% off your qualifying purchase from PetCareRX, or 10% off plus free shipping on $49 orders from 1800PetMeds.

Buy treats and chews in bulk.
Treats and chews represent healthy ways to reward your dog, but they can be pricey! Shop for both these items in bulk to cut costs. You can buy rawhides and dental chews from Costco and Sam’s Club for over 40% less compared to pet stores. Same goes with treats: a 25oz container of Milk-Bone Soft & Chewy Treats is priced at $12.99 on PetSmart’s website, while Sam’s Club offers a 37oz container of the same treats for just $8.38.

Order food online.
Buying dog food in bulk will get you the best bang for your buck, but there’s nothing fun about hauling those oversize bags to and from your car. Not only is ordering food online easier, but it can be cheaper, too! Many pet-specific sites offer a discount to those who set up repeat delivery plus free delivery. For example, Petco offers 15% off when you use their repeat auto delivery program. Alternatively, do the research and choose cheap dog food that also contains the best ingredients, click here to learn more.

Set up a dog-emergency fund.
With average annual medical expenses for dogs costing $786, it’s important to set aside money for their care. Be sure to include extra funds for emergencies, as unplanned visits to emergency clinics and overnight stays can add up fast. A pet-specific emergency fund will alleviate any financial pressure should your pet be facing an expensive surgery or medication to treat a serious illness.

Use daily deals for grooming.
In addition to using coupons, daily deal sites like Groupon and LivingSocial are great places to snag discount vouchers for grooming services. For instance, you can save up to 54% at Furry Tails in New York City or pay just $8 for a doggie bath ($15 value) at Bark Williams near Los Angeles via Groupon.

Think outside the kennel.
Kenneling isn’t the only option when you leave for vacation. Check out Rover.com to find a local pet sitter who will care for your dog in their home. You can easily find reviews for each person and rest easy knowing your dog is getting one-on-one attention. If you want your dog to accompany you on your travels, check Motel 6 availability at your destination (the “original pet-friendly motel,” according to their website), or filter VRBO results by “pet-friendly” properties.

Running Dog

Find a new “friend” at Douglas Cuddle Toys (Giveaway ends 9/9/15)

 

Pal and Bridgette

When you were growing up did you have a special stuffed animal or doll that you considered your “friend.”

When I was a young girl I had A LOT of plush friends. I had two that were with me all the time. I never left home without them (visiting relatives, going on vacation). I didn’t actually take them to stores or places like that with me – I just liked knowing I had them to cuddle with at night.

My friends are pictured above. The gray one is Pal and the brown dog is Bridgette. I believe Pal was actually a dog at one time (not bear). Poor Pal. He is in sad shape but I love him just the same. Both plush are 47 years old. They have been with me since I was a baby.

I had amassed a huge collection of stuffed animals when I was younger. Whenever I was at the store I would pay a visit to the stuffed animal section. Whenever I found a plush animal that was less than perfect (mashed face, missing an eye, marked up…) I would buy it. I know it sounds silly but I used to think that they had feelings and that the ones that were flawed were never going to get purchased and therefore never going to experience love. So I would buy them and bring them home with me where I showed them love.

I don’t know if that makes me a big hearted person or just nuts. LOL!

Even as an adult I have a soft spot in my heart for plush animals. I have several in my home that I adore. They make me smile every time I look at them.

One of my furry friends is Mr. Bear. I sleep with him at night sometimes (no kidding!).

Here is my hubby with Mr. Bear. I got him for free from at the toy store for making a big purchase. I was going to donate him but he was just too cute and cuddly. I had to keep him for myself.

Mr. Bear

Have you heard of the brand Douglas Cuddle Toys? Douglas Cuddle Toys sells the most adorable, and realistic looking, plush toys.

Douglas Cuddle Toys has plush dogs, cats, zoo animals, wild animals – you name it.

Douglass Cuddle Toys

Aren’t they just darling?

I was thrilled when Douglas Cuddle Toys reached out to me and asked if I’d like to do a review.

I received to review Ingrid, a Pembroke stuffed Corgi dog.

My great-great-Aunt lived in Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Wales where the Pembroke Welsh Corgi originates from. I’ve even been to Pembroke. I was there in 82′ and again in 86′. One of my favorite castles is also in Pembroke (Pembroke Castle, birthplace of Henry VII). I find it fitting that I received the Corgi as one of my review choices. I also happen to love the breed (they are so cute!).

Ingrid is about 14″ long – about the size of a Corgi puppy. She’s also incredibly cute and very realistic looking.

You many have seen some photos of Ingrid on my Instagram page.

Versatile Pet Bed for Cats and Dogs from Pet P.L.A.Y

 

Sleep 2

I love my pets. They happiness and health is a top priority for me.

With five cats and a dog it goes without saying that we have several pet beds. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen some funny pictures I posted the other day about our cat Bella and how out of all the cozy places to sleep (pet beds, cat tree, love seat…) she opted to sleep on my daughter’s dresser. Crazy kitty! One photo is seen above and the other below.

Sleep 1

We even have one bed that is so big I think all five cats and our dog can sleep on it. LOL!

Big Bed

A while back I was sent information on a really classy looking pet bed – one that I think would add to a home’s decor. It’s by a company called Pet P.L.A.Y (Pet Lifestyle And You). The pet bed is made out of a reclaimed wine barrel.

Check out the beautiful Wine Barrel Dog & Pet Bed on the Pet P.L.A.Y site.

db01-l

How beautiful is that bed? I would so love to have a bed like that for my pets.

Pet P.L.A.Y was kind enough to send me one of their other pet beds to review with my pets – their convertible Snuggle Bed.

Sewn with dirt-resistant canvas on one side and luxurious faux fur on the other, this convertible dog bed can be molded into a variety of shapes and uses, conforming to you and your pet’s lifestyle, and offering your pup or kitty a heavenly retreat.

What makes this pet bed different than other pet beds is that it can be used in different ways.

momo_demo_snuggle

Snuggle Bed

I love the idea of making the bed into different styles.

The bed is reversible too. One side is super soft and plush (I would sleep on it!). The other side is a bit cooler for hotter days. You an reverse the bed and make it into any of the above mentioned shapes.

Our cats LOVE to hide in things. I love how the Snuggle Bed can be turned into a tunnel for our cats to sleep in. We just have to make sure we know a cat is in there so we don’t accidentally step on them. Our dog actually lied down on the Snuggle Bed when it was a tunnel and ended up sleeping on top of our cat Bella.

When we first received the Snuggle Bed to review Bella wouldn’t even get off of it. She was lying in the dining room and I placed the bed next to her to see what she would do. Right away she lied down on top of it and spent HOURS on it. She loves it.

Bed 1

Bed 2

Bed 3

Bed 4

Bed 5

I have made the bed into different shapes. The cats prefer the tunnel / flat version. Our dog prefers it more so as a bed but he enjoys it flat too. Since the cats out number the dog, for now, I keep the Snuggle Bed in the tunnel / flat style.

You can see in the photos below the opened end where that cats like to crawl in and hide/sleep. You an also see why we have to watch that our dog Espn doesn’t sleep on top of one. LOL!

Snuggle Bed 1

Snuggle Bed 2

Snuggle Bed 3

In the above photo Espn is a bit fuzzy. That is because he was rolling around on the Snuggle Bed. He likes to lie on it, roll around on it and push it around.

I like that this bed converts to different styles. It not only offers your pet/pets more but it helps to keep them bored from sleeping in the same old bed too.

The Snuggle Bed is available in three colors – Charcoal Gray, Husky Gray or Truffle Brown. The one we have is Husky Gray. The bed is also available in three different sizes.

Snuggle Bed Sizes

We have the large one so you can tell how big it is against our dog and cat. Espn is a medium size dog (about 20 pounds) and Bella is an average size cat (around 10 pounds).

The bed is available on the Pet P.L.A.Y website and retails for $55 – $109 depending on the size you get. That might seem a bit pricey but considering the quality of the bed, the fact that it’s reversible and that it converts into different types of beds to please any dog or cat, it’s not that bad of a price.

If you are interested in the Snuggle Bed or any other product on the Pet P.L.A.Y site you can get 20% off your purchase using the discount code SHESCRIBES. This discount code expires the end of this year (December 31, 2015).

Pet P.L.A.Y has other pet beds as well as toys, pillows, tunnels, covers and more.

If you would like more information or to check out the other wonderful products available, visit www.PetPLAY.com.

Pet P.L.A.Y has been featured on the Today Show, CBS, Women’s Day, People, Hallmark Channel and Coastal Living. You can also find the brand on social media. All the links are found at the bottom of their website.

What do you think about the Snuggle Bed? Do you think your dog or cat would enjoy something like this?

Celebrate Mother’s Day with PetSmart (giveaway ends 5/17/15)

 

Pets

Mother’s Day is this coming weekend.

You don’t have to give birth to someone to be a mom or a mother-like figure in someone’s life. Take my situation for example. I was raised by my paternal grandparents. They have always been – and always will be – my mom and dad.

Some pet owners look at their pets as their “children.” I have to admit that I do that. After all, my pets are a part of my family, even though I clearly did not give birth to them (wouldn’t that be weird).

Our fish - Fishy (orange) and Wishy (white/orange)

Our fish – Fishy (orange) and Wishy (white/orange)

Some pet parents see their pets as children and take it to the extreme. They dress their pets up, take them on exotic vacations (lucky pets!), feed them gourmet meals and even adorn them with diamonds.

I think most pet parents are more like me. I talk to my pets, I try and spend time with each one individually and I like to get them Christmas and birthday gifts.

Each holiday season I get a “family ornament” where I put all my family members on it. I always make sure to include my pets too – all five cats, our dog and even our fish!

Here is one example.

Ornament

I fuzzed out my human-kids names for their protection. The remaining names are our five cats, dog and two Goldfish.

I sometimes think our pets ARE related to my kids. They often exhibit similar personality traits as my kids.

As it is with your own children, having pets is a year round job that is filled with challenges and a lot of love and joy.

PetSmart wants to recognize all those pet moms who make a difference in the lives of their pets. They were kind enough to send me a box of goodies for both me and my fuzzy family members. We received the following items;

Balls

My cat’s love the bells inside and enjoy swatting them around the floor.

Cat Dental Treats

My cats are crazy for these.

Frisbee

What dog doesn’t enjoy a Frisbee?

Frog & Ball

The little plush frog toy is so cute. My dog loves the ball too but he keeps rolling it off our balcony and “I” am the one who has to “fetch” it. LOL!

Fuzzy

Cats LOVE the fuzzy tails on these balls.

Kong

My dog goes bonkers when I put a treat inside. Even the cats try and get the treat out.

Mice

These mice are beautifully made. My cats love these, most especially our cat Anakin. He’s a “mouse-o-holic.” Ha Ha

Bowls

These bowls are SO CUTE! They are almost too cute to let them get slobbered all over. LOL!

Greenies

Greenies dental treats for both cats and dogs. Oral health is very important to me. If my kids brush twice a day so should my furry children.

NOT PICTURED: Several adorable cat collars from Whisker City (the photo turned out horribly) and a cute Pound Puppy dog toy (my dog had the toy and wouldn’t give it back to me to snap a photo).

My furry family members were not the only ones who received wonderful gifts – I also received a gift card to Spa Envy so that I could get a little pampering for Mother’s Day. I’ll consider that a gift from my pets since they can’t make me a card. 🙂

If you would like to learn more about any of these products, or to find a PetSmart location near you, please visit www.PetSmart.com. PetSmart is also found on social media.

PetSmart Logo

PetSmart would like to pamper a lucky reader and their pet with a great giveaway. The winner will receive a gift card to Spa Envy ($59 value) AND an assortment of pet products for a dog, cat or both. Thank you so much PetSmart!

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end on May 17, 2015 at 11:59 PM (EST). The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator. The winner will be notified via email. The winner has three days to respond or a new winner will be chosen in their place.

Product Review: PetArmor® Plus IGR for Dogs Flea and Tick Topical

 

Tick

I’ve been blogging since 2008. One of my first posts was about an incident where my family was coming home for spending time at a local park with our dog, Espn (pronounced Es-pin). He was just a puppy at the time.

On our way home he was sitting on my lap in the front seat. I noticed a tick crawling over him. Then another and another. He was covered in ticks! He was also on my lap which means the ticks were on me too and both of my kids were in the car with us. I was worried about the ticks getting on them too.

Needless to say I freaked out.

I grew up with dogs and they would get a tick (single tick) and usually by the time it was discovered it had already embedded it’s self into the skin and was engorged with blood. My mom and sister were pros at removing ticks. Not me. I would run away when I saw one. They gross me out. Now our puppy was covered with them and it was up to me and my husband to get rid of them before they could embed themselves. THANKFULLY we were able to remove all the ticks.

Since that day I have been very weary of ticks. We have five cats and the thought of our dog bringing them into our home and having them find their way to our cats freak me out.

We have seen ticks on our dog a few times over the years. Once my husband woke up with a tick on his chest – under his nightshirt which was under the blankets. Ewwww!!!!! Thankfully it didn’t bite him and it tested negative for Lyme’s Disease (we had to taken to the local college for testing which our town recommends).

My stepmother suffers from Lyme’s Disease. In fact she has a more aggressive form of it that mimics Parkinson’s Disease. Shes on about 60+ pills and supplements daily to deal with it. It’s been a nightmare of an experience for her and my father.

For more information about ticks visit TickEncounter.org.

Thankfully Espn has never had a flea, but that is a constant worry of mine. Having a house full of cats and a dog would be a flea’s paradise. I’ve experienced flea infestations growing up and its a nightmare. I hope to never experience it again.

ESPN

Fleas and Ticks, and the diseases they carry, are the reasons why I make sure our dog is protected.

Did you know that what you find on your dog is only a small percentage of what could be lurking in your home? Fleas especially can live in the grass and soil. They like small crevices and can live in tiny floor cracks as well as carpets, rugs and bedding. They multiply like crazy too.

Fleas can also transmit tapeworm. Gross!!!

I was sent to review with our dog a free sample of PetArmor® Plus IGR for Dogs Flea and Tick Topical. It helps to kills adult fleas, flea eggs, ticks and even chewing lice. Although I am also being compensated for my participation the opinions expressed are my own and not influenced in any way.

PetArmor Plus IGR contains Fipronil which is the #1 veterinarian-recommended active ingredient used in FRONTLINE® brand products*.  It also contains something called Novaluron which is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that kills flea eggs and stops the reinfestation cycle.

Application is simple.

  1. Remove the product from the package.
  2. Hold the tube with notched end pointing up and away from the face and body. Use scissors to cut off the narrow end at the notches along the line.
  3. Invert tube over dog and use open end to part dog’s hair.
  4. Squeeze tube firmly to apply all of the solution from the back of the neck to a point midway between the neck and tail.

You should apply this product monthly to ensure that your pet is always protected.

This product is not recommended for cats. PetArmor has a cat version of this product.

PetArmor Plus IGR should only be used on dogs 8 weeks and older.

PetArmor Packaging 2

There are different packages available for different size dogs. Make sure to pick up the correct one based on your dog’s weight. Each package has three tubes, enough to protect your dog for 3 months (one tube every 30 days).

  • 6.5 to 22 lbs.
  • 23 to 44 lbs.
  • 45 to 88 lbs.
  • 89 to 132 lbs.

You cannot alter the dosing or split it up between two dogs. One package per dog and you must use the entire tube.

We used PetArmor Plus IGR on our dog Espn. Application was quick and easy (even for our wiggly dog who didn’t want to stand still). I can’t tell you if it’s working as far as ticks and fleas are concerned since we haven’t seen any ticks yet this year and Espn has never had fleas (thankfully). It does give me peace of mind knowing that he’s protected for the next 30 days.

You can find PetArmor at Walmart and online at Walmart.com.

For more information about PetArmor you can visit the official website. You can also find the brand on Facebook and Twitter.

Holiday Pet Safety

 

Pet Holiday Safety

The holidays are suppose to be a happy and joyful time for everyone – including your pets. However this time of year can also be a dangerous time for your pets if you are not careful and diligent about keeping them out of harm’s way.

As a pet mom I make extra certain that the holidays don’t mean a trip (or two) to the emergency vet (we already have enough vet bills). Not only that, I wouldn’t want our holiday ruined if one of our beloved pets gets seriously ill or becomes a fatality.

Here are some helpful safety tips to ensure that your furry friend is safe this holiday season.

Keep holiday plants out of reach. Some plants – especially Poinsettias, Mistletoe, Holly and Lilies) are toxic for pets if they ingest them. Even pine cones and tree needles can cause intestinal damage if swallowed. Make sure to vacuum under your tree often.

Cats love shiny, dangling things. As pretty as it is consider leaving it off your tree is better for our feline friend. Not only can they swallow the tinsel but they can also pull down the tree if it’s not secured properly, or knock down decorations which could also be a potential health hazard.

If your cat likes to climb inside your Christmas tree hanging a lemon scented car air freshener, or placing orange peels at the base of the tree could stop them. Most cats don’t like the smell of citrus.

Avoid putting lights and decorations on low branches. The last thing you want is you pup chewing through the lights and getting electrocuted or chewing up your favorite ornaments.

Cat Christmas

NEVER EVER leave your pet alone in a room with lit candles. That is a major fire hazard. Use flameless candles. They give of the same appeal but are much safer to use around pets (and small children).

If possible secure your tree. Sometimes pets might accidently bump into a tree which could cause it to fall down and injure your pet plus break many of your valuable and precious ornaments.

Use a pet friendly tree preservative if you use a real Christmas tree. Dogs and cats often will drink the water you use to keep your tree hydrated. When in doubt just use fresh, clean water to water your tree and try and keep your pet from drinking out of it. Stagnant tree water contains A LOT of bacteria which could make your pet very ill.

If you like to put edible goodies in stockings be sure to hand them up high enough so your pet cannot reach them. Edible goodies smell good to dogs and they might tear into the stocking before you do. Some foods, like chocolate, are toxic to animals and it can make the very sick.

As you are toasting to the end of the current year and welcoming in the New Year be sure to keep the cocktails out of reach. Unlike humans, pets don’t get drunk – they can get severely sick if they drink alcohol, possibly even going into respiratory failure, a coma or even dying from ingesting alcohol.

Pet's can't "party" like their human family members - Alcohol is a big no-no for pets (FYI... My cat was sleeping at the time)

Pet’s can’t “party” like their human family members – Alcohol is a big no-no for pets (FYI… My cat was sleeping at the time)

Don’t serve your pet “people food” and make sure all food is out of reach. Bones for example (turkey, ham or lamb) can splinter and get stuck in your pet’s throat or intestines. Not only that, too much people food can make our pet obese and it can upset their stomachs. I’m sure you don’t want to spend Christmas morning cleaning up dog diarrhea from you carpet.

Make sure your pet cannot get into the garbage. Grandma’s fruitcake that you toss into the garbage could contain things like raisins which are toxic for dogs. Other ingredients, like garlic, is also bad for your pet.

Make sure there are not little things lying around that could be swallowed by your pet, like button cell batteries and small toys.

The holidays might seem merry and bright to you, but a house full of strangers can be very stressful on your pet. Consider putting your pet/pets into a backroom, away from all the festivities. Not only will it make it less stressful for your pet but also safer for your guests. Frightened pets might lash out and scratch or bite a guest.

If you are having house guests this holiday season be sure to talk to them about pet safety. Make sure they don’t leave valuable lying around or things like prescription medication or dentures. You wouldn’t want Fido taking a chomp out of grandpa’s chompers.

Dog Dentures

If you live in an area that gets cold make sure that your pet keeps warm too. Even though your pet has fur doesn’t mean it can’t get affected by the elements. Be sure to keep your pet warm and cozy on Winter walks and limit their time outdoors, especially in bitter temperatures. Also, be sure to check the pads of your pets feed for rock salt. Rock salt left in their paws can burn and cause them pain.

If you use streamers and confetti to celebrate the New Year be sure to clean up immediately so that your dog or cat doesn’t eat the confetti or streamers. If the New York City Sanitation Department can clean up Times Square lightening fast after the ball drops, you can certainly get your living room vacuumed in a matter of minutes.

In case of emergencies make sure you have first aid supplies specifically made for pets. Not all vets are open during the holidays (especially on Christmas and New Year’s day). It’s important that you keep a first aid kit for your furry friend to help with minor injuries.

pet-first-aid-product-group
