"Taking care of your pet responsibly impacts more than just our budgets. Pets are a great investment for saving money on our own health and wellness,” writes Pampered Pets on a Budget co-author, Kristen Levine.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 22, 2011
TAMPA, FL – In today’s tough economy, the costs for pet health care, food and other supplies have risen just as human health care and food costs. Fortunately for pets, when times are tough, Americans tend to focus more on family—and since pets are family, they are often the last item a family is willing to cut from the budget. In the new book, Pampered Pets on a Budget: Caring for your pet without losing your tail (Lulu.com, November 2011), co-authors Jeffrey L. Barnes and Kristen M. Levine uncover new ways to save on the products and services pet owners need to take great care of their pets, without compromising their pet’s health or the pet owner’s pocketbook.
“If your pet budget is limited, saving on pet supplies and services is imperative,” points out Levine, who brings over 20 years of “paws on” expertise as a popular columnist and pet lifestyle expert for national and local media including The Tampa Tribune, Petside.com, the nationally syndicated Daytime morning program, as well as contributor for USA Today and FoxNews.com. “But taking care of your pet responsibly impacts more than just our budgets. Pets are a great investment for saving money on our own health and wellness.”
In Pampered Pets on a Budget, pet owners will:
- Learn the benefits of the human-animal bond to your life and your pocketbook
