Healthy animals require quality food, vaccinations, check-ups, desexing surgery, heartworm prevention, intestinal worming, tick and flea prevention, bathing and grooming, bedding, housing, leads/collars, training, and that’s just the basics. Additionally, it’s also recommended you buy pet insurance.

At some point, it’s likely that your pet will require extra veterinary treatment for that unexpected illness or injury. So, how much do our dogs cost over their entire lives? Approximately $20,000 if they live for 15 years.
