You can save a ton of money in vet Bill's by going to your local feed store or Tractor Supply store. You can purchase deworming, flee control, and they usually have low cost vaccinations a couple of times a months.
Yes! I also purchase 40lbs of pine pellets ( usually for horse bedding) for $7. This is what we use for cat litter. I often add a bit of baking soda too. With or without that, the pine smells so much better, is way more economical + my cat digs it. 😁
Take an empty water bottle with cap on tightly placed into a tube sock. Tie a knot in sock so bottle doesn’t come out. Instant free dog toy!
