economic times it
is so tempting to try and get by with cheaper products. I know
everyone's situation is different but in the long term, this tactic
ends up costing more money.
we talked about a customer who would not buy premium pet food or
supplements for her 100 pound, 10+ year old Golden Retriever because of
the cost. Then she ended up spending over $600 on a vet exam, steroid
injection and prescription food because her arthritic dog literally
could not get up to go outside to the bathroom. What
product could she have purchased for less than $50/month?
Recently, a customer who had been feeding a
raw food diet and BioPreparation to their 2 year old
switched to dry kibble and
cheaper supplements. Now their dog had a bout of loose, bloody stools.
After two rounds of antibiotics, the condition seems to be under
control. But she now has to feed a home-made diet of
pumpkin, rice or oatmeal and
digestive enzymes. Would $50/month and a good premium food diet
Let me give an example most people can
relate to. Say one tries to use the cheapest, no-name brand gasoline to
save money. For the first six months everything seems
fine and you are saving money. Then your car becomes hard to start,
sputters and hesitates when going uphill. You take your car to your
mechanic and he tells you the sparks plugs are all gummed up, the
engine's timing is off and needs a tune-up and the fuel filter is
clogged. He asks you, what have you changed in the last year to cause
this, since your car didn't used to be this bad. The only thing you
changed was buying that cheap, no-name brand gasoline. The difference
is, the brand-name gasoline has cleaning detergents in it to prevent
deposits from forming, the higher octane brand-name gasoline burns
hotter and is more efficient in your engine for accelerating up hills
and the brand-name gasoline station has standards requiring them to
change their pumps' filters at regular intervals for cleaner gasoline.
Brand-name stations also do not let their gasoline storage tank drop
below a certain level to avoid dredging up the sludge that inevitably
settles at the bottom of their storage tank (resulting in a clogged fuel
filter). All these conditions make
brand-name gas cost more but in the end it is safer, more efficient and
better for the health of your car. Whether it's worth it to save money
in the short term by buying the cheapest gas available, is up to each
individual. I'll bet the savings in gas is less than what the mechanic
charges for a major
tune-up and replacement parts.
I am not judging any of our customers for trying to save money. Everyone
must do, what they have to do, in their individual situation. In these
times, it is worth evaluating what you are investing your money in.
Why not invest in something that you have total
control over, that will continue to pay dividends (no matter how low the
financial market goes) and that no one can take away from you:
yours and your pet's health. The government can't tax it, the banks
can't lock it up and the returns will continue to accumulate as long as
you continue to invest.
your holistic health and economic wellness.
