The Lifetime Cost of a Pet

There are two main cost areas when owning a pet: the initial cost (adoption costs, vaccinations, training, etc.) and then general costs over your pet’s lifetime (food, toys, routine vet visits, etc.) Combining both of these costs together will give you a rough estimate of the lifetime cost of your pet. Even without some of the larger expenses like a fenced in backyard, initial costs like vaccines, heartworm prevention, toys, training, and food can add up to $680 or more. Throw in routine expenses such as dental care ($40 to $80 per year), food ($240 per year), and grooming ($30 per visit) and you’re looking at $300-$400 per year before major medical expenses.


Pet ownership represents a large emotional – and financial – commitment. Whether you buy from a pet store or a breeder, adopt an animal from a shelter, or take in a stray, initial costs are just the beginning of the story.

This guide examines the different costs associated with pet ownership and helps you know what to expect, how to plan for these expenses, and potential ways to reduce the financial burden of pet ownership.
The Cost of Owning a Dog
Dogs and cats are the two most popular pets on the planet, but the differences between these two animals are stark. Dogs tend to require far more attention than cats do. From a financial standpoint, this translates into more expenses. Dogs need to be brushed every day or every few days—more if you own a particularly energetic breed that frequently gets dirty. More energy results in more injuries, and dogs often benefit from training.
As a rule, owning a dog will be more expensive than owning a cat. It’s important to decide before you adopt which of the two animals is a better fit for your lifestyle.
Medical Care for Dogs
Certain breeds of dogs are more prone to medical problems than others. Some are almost infamous for them; for example, pugs and bulldogs. Most flat-faced dog breeds have chronic respiratory issues and are known for loud snoring. While that may be an endearing quality to many people, the snoring is a result of the animal struggling to breathe. German Shepherds are also prone to a number of problems like eczema and hip dysplasia.
A good rule to remember is that any animal bred to look a specific way likely has a health issue as a result. King Charles Cavalier Spaniels are prone to brain injury because their skulls have been bred almost too small for their brains, while English Bulldogs face a number of joint issues as well as skin issues.
The Cost of Owning a Cat
Cats are more self-sufficient than dogs. They require less personal attention and can be expected to take care of themselves for days at a time. Cats are also less expensive overall than dogs, especially if kept indoors. Because they aren’t exposed to other animals and the elements, indoor cats have a much lower risk of injury and sickness. If you’re the type of person who wants animal companionship without as much commitment, a cat is a great choice.
Medical Care for Cats
Cats have many of the same medical expenses as dogs, but are also susceptible to certain problems that dogs are not. Many purebred cats can be prone to specific problems, but that is largely due to how the breeder chose what traits to pass on. Hairless cats are vulnerable to skin conditions, while white, blue-eyed cats are much more likely to be deaf than other color combinations. Before choosing a breed, look into the potential health risks associated with it and then check the credentials of the breeder. Ensure they place the long-term health of the cats before any specific traits.
