Shopping for your animal companion has never been easier because of online shopping apps, such as Lazada and Shopee. You can shop in the comfort of your own home; no need to go to the mall to buy your supplies!
If you need ideas on what to buy, here are ten things you can find on your preferred shopping app.
DOG SHAMPOO WITH MADRE DE CACAO
Shampoos are always in demand whether you have a Chihuahua or a Golden Retriever. But buying one regular shampoo bottle may be too much of a hassle. It may be time to buy something bigger. In Lazada, you can buy one liter of shampoo made with madre de cacao and guava by Home Care for only Php 65. The shampoo has anti-tick, mange, and anti-fungal properties, making your pooches less prone to itch.
DOG LEASH OR HARNESS
Need to walk your Dog? It would help if you had a leash.
There is a variety of leashes and harnesses available online, including body harnesses, adjustable leashes, and reflectable collars. (With a body harness, the Dog’s neck doesn’t bear the brunt of any tugging action during outdoor walks.)
The price ranges from Php 99 to 300 in Lazada.
SNOUT AND PAW BALM
Summer in the Philippines is getting hotter lately, and just like humans, Dogs can be prone to dry skin because of the harsh sunlight.
Enter the paw balm. It is usually made of natural ingredients like shea oil and beeswax to keep the paws soft and healthy.
You can snag one of these for your Pups at around Php 129 to 299.
Whether you use tofu or the traditional bentonite litter, Lazada’s got you. There are lots of Cat litter you can choose from, and they come in different sizes as well.
Cat litter can weigh 2 to 10 kilos, with prices ranging from Php 100 to 200.
CAT LITTER DEODORIZER
If your litter box stinks despite regular cleaning, you might benefit from buying a Cat litter deodorizer from Lazada.
There are quite a few deodorizers available online that you can choose from, but the one from the brand Arm & Hammer (the same brand as the baking soda) is very effective in masking the foul odor. They have two kinds: liquid and powder form. The powder version is more commonly used and costs Php 225.
If you search for Cat food on Lazada or Shopee, you see more variety in wet food brands as compared to what’s available in supermarkets.
Buying wet food online may be more beneficial if you have a picky eater. Typically, one can of wet food would cost Php 75 to 200 pesos.
FOR DOGS AND CATS
Sometimes you don’t have time to go to your local vet clinic to buy some multivitamins for your animal
companions, so buying them from Lazada is more convenient.
According to reviews, purchasing the vitamins online can be cheaper than buying them at a clinic — the one you can find online costs Php 468.
FLEA AND TICK REMOVER
Just like the previous item, it’s much more convenient to buy these from Lazada. There is also a wide variety of brands available on the app. The average price is Php 150.
If you type “Cat treats” or “Dog treats” into the search bar, you will be bombarded with lots of brands.
You will always have choices when it comes to treats for your animal companions.
Sometimes, buying the treats online is cheaper, too. Plan well and you might buy your Cat’s next snack for less than Php 100.
You would think that you could only get wipes for your Cats from a pet store, but you’d be mistaken. You can also buy them online.
What’s better is that you can purchase the wipes in bulk. There are a ton of brands you can choose from, and it would cost you around Php 100 to 200.
