Christmas is now less than 2 months away and as many people still buy pets for Christmas for their partner or children, you might want to pause and consider the costs first.
Research by British insurer Petplan claims that a dog will cost $33 900 over a 12 year typical lifespan and a cat $32 600 over 16 years.
So while puppies and kittens are cute they’re for life and the expenses are very real. You need to cover not only food but unexpected vet bills from accidents and sickness, worming and flea tablets, desexing costs, toys, collars, leads, boarding expenses when you go away and grooming.
