Owning A Dog Could Cost You GBP 30,000

Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 03, 2011 -- The costs of owning a dog have been revealed by a new study which puts the average cost at £30,000 over its lifetime.

The survey has worked out the average cost based on a 12 year lifespan, and includes all essentials like vets bills and food, to dog training supplies, to treats like toys and dog beds. The costs can easily mount up, and these figures don't include the initial cost of buying a dog which can be £700 or more for a pedigree puppy.

Costs can vary depending on the breed or size of the dog, with Labradors, Boxers and Golden Retrievers being the most expensive. Labradors are the most costly dog to own as they carry long-term heredity conditions which make them more prone to illnesses and conditions as they get older.

Owning a cat can also be pricey, with the estimated cost of owning a cat costing £14,000 over a 16 year life span. Owners who want to spoil their pets with premium cat food, top of the range toys and cat beds, and grooming can expect to pay much more.
