Old School Service
One of the many things I love about Budapest is its option of old school service. Here in Budapest services are offered that keep life simplier and more convenient. For example companies still offer at home delivery for milk and other products. I hear them before I see them, with their whimsical music playing as their van pulls up.
I seriously love that my vet comes to my home. A simple phone call is all it takes to schedule Tanner’s at home appointment. My vet has now visited the house twice and given Tanner his heart worm prevention medication, his tick prevention medication and trimmed his nails. She is gentle, friendly and efficient. Tanner and I both like her and best of all her services are convenient and affordable.

Total Cost 9,800 Hungarian Forint which converts to a total of $45.37 US dollars for the services listed above.
Dog Food Delivery
Through a friend I learned that a local pet store provides home delivery for purchases of large quantity dog food. (I ordered three huge bags, 15 kilo each. Which comes out to 99.2 lbs of dog food.) The total cost 21,600 Hungarian Forint, which converts to $104 US dollars. By US standards that is expensive, but pet food products are expensive here. For example, I regularly buy Pedigree can dog food to suppliment Tanner’s dry food. It costs me the equivelent of $1.72 for a single can I would pay 75 cents for in the US.
The fact that Hungarian businesses offers these old school services is a blessing. At home delivery and pet care help keep my life simplier. They also offer a window of insight in to life long ago.
