Saving Money Highlights from #BarkWorld, Part Two


In Part One of our highlights from BarkWorld post, I told you about some of my favorite parts of the conference, from the dog treat cookoff to the Victoria Stilwell keynote.

Today I wanted to bring you conference-related news about saving money!

$2 Off Nutrish Coupon

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Nutrish sent me to BarkWorld. We’ve been super excited to partner with them because this is a brand we really love not only for its food (Irie and Tiki are crazy about the Naturally Delish™ tubs and we’re eager to learn more about the new Zero Grain food that’s been rated four stars by Dog Food Advisor) but also for the amazing work that Rachael Ray and Nutrish do for homeless animals. All her profits from this food line go to Rachael’s Rescue and are used to support animal rescue. Nutrish had a big presence at BarkWorld and hosted a fun dog bowl painting party one night!

If you’d like to try Nutrish with your dog, just download a $2 off coupon on your choice of foods!

New Pet Pharmacy Benefit Plan

As you know, here on DogTipper we’re always covering ways to save money on pet care here (we are the authors of Barkonomics: Tips for Frugal Fidos, after all!) While we all want to save money, at the same time we need to provide our pets with a healthy lifestyle including meeting their veterinary needs.

PetCareRx introduced their new Protection Plus by PetCareRx plan at the show. It’s a prescription card for PETS. For $9.99 a month, you sign up and can then receive discounted prescription medications and preventatives for your pets. Orders are placed online then shipped for free or yuo can pick them up in-store at a participating drugstore in your area.

The plan includes pets that are already on medications and there are no claims to file. We’re going to be looking into this card more (including for use with our own cat Felix who is on twice-daily medication for hypothyroidism). We’ll bring you more details as we learn more but wanted to introduce you to the new plan.
