If you’re considering adopting a pet, make sure to take into consideration how adding another family member will affect your budget. The costs don’t just stop at their adoption fee – there are a LOT of both one-time and recurring expenses that come with pet ownership!
That’s not to mention the expected and potential veterinary costs! Your pet needs a yearly checkup as well as yearly vaccinations, in addition to their monthly flea/tick preventative. They may develop allergies or other conditions that require daily medication. All of that can add up, and that’s not even considering unexpected illnesses, injuries or other emergencies that may call for veterinary attention – any of which can cost thousands of dollars. Of course, most pet owners don’t have thousands of dollars lying around in case their pet needs emergency surgery. Thankfully, pet insurance can help ease your burden if the worst happens.
There are always ways to save money as a pet owner with awesome subscription services and rewards programs. Just make sure you’re aware of all the things you’ll need to purchase up front and for years to come when you find your forever friend!
