If you have locally-sourced ground beef and pork, this could be healthy AND inexpensive for your dog. Check out this post on homemade dog food. There's even a link to making dog food in your slow cooker. Intriguing concept. Maybe after we get our ground venison beef back from the processor, I'll try this.

Hello pet owners!

Perhaps you've been fruitlessly visiting the Frugal Beagle, wondering why the site rarely updates anymore. Fear not...a second author has been added to the site to sniff out the deals and broadcast them to fellow pet owners/lovers. I am the owner of two elderly cats and one high-strung German Shorthaired Pointer, so I'm aware of the costs associated with having pets, and how we all need to save money.


Great Deal this week at Target

Click on the link for the full details. Thanks for the comment left on this.

Also, if any of you use baby wipes to clean up your pets(it's a handy way to remove mud from paws). CVS has a great deal going on Huggies wipes this week. The big refill bag, normally priced at 7.99 is ringing up a 2.50! Plus, some card holders are getting 2.00/1 coupons when they scan them at the machines. I did not get this awesome coupon, but I did get two packs plus a tomato soup for just 2.89!

Pet Deals at Publix

Publix is offering a few pet friendly coupons and deals in their ad this week.

Target Deals

I normally do not post non dog items but I wanted to post this because if you need pet items this week there are a few ways to do it and get other items. Target has the individual cups of Quaker Oatmeal on sale for 1.02. If you buy five of them, in the same transaction, you get a 5.00 gift card.

Buy 5 Quaker Oatmeals at 1.02=5.10
Use the 1.00/1 printable (2)=2.00
Total Out of Pocket=3.10+tax
Plus, you get a 5.00 Target giftcard!

Now you cannot use this giftcard in the same transaction as the one you earn it. The system just does not allow it, no matter how much you want it to, it will not. Trust me.

With this lovely 5.00 giftcard you can buy whatever pet items you need or you could use it to do this deal.
Buy 1 Gillette Fushion Razor @ 6.99
Buy 1 Gilette Embrace Razor @ 6.99
Buy 1 Olay Body Wash@ 5.49
use the 4.00 off any Fushion Razor from the 2/7 P&G insert
Use the 2.00 off any Gillette Razor from the 2/7 P&G insert
Use the Buy any Gillett Embraze razor and get a free Olay body wash coupon=5.49 off from the 2/7 insert
=5.98 due
-5.00 gift card
=.98+tax due and you'll get another 5.00 gift card

It's like ECBs only your only limit is your time and how many coupons you have to use.
