Medications that I normally get from my vet can be gotten from the local drug store at less than half the price. My cat takes an "ACE inhibitor" for his kidney/blood pressure problems. The vet charges 30 dollars and the local pharmacy charges 11.00. The vet's office was happy to "call it in". It saves me plenty.
I get dog bones from the meat department at my grocery store. They are called "previously frozen soup bones". I give the dogs the raw bone straight out of the freezer and it keeps them busy for almost 2 hours. One dog gets loose poops that resolves in one day, but the other gal has no problems. Then they work that bone for a week or more. The neighbor dogs come by to get the old bones in the yard and it's a nice quiet neighborhood.
Do you have a dog or cat bed that's flattened out. Here's what I did to put a little life back in it. I bought some polyfill from the store and restuffed the bed. Most of the newer beds have zippers so you can do this. The polyfill costs about 5-8 bucks for a box and my dog was very happy when her bed was restuffed and more comfortable for her to sleep on. And it's a cheap way to do it instead of the expense of buying a new bed. Better yet, hit the garage sales and find some pillows on sale and do it that way!
