Animals: How much does it cost to raise a dog?

Pet

Nowadays, the threat of coronavirus in the world forces most people to work remotely or live in isolation. Under such circumstances, a pet boom is occurring all over the world. There are many popular pets such as dogs, cats, hamsters, ferrets and weasels. However, many people may not know how much money they need to keep a pet. This time, I will write about how much it costs to raise a dog for a lifetime.

Lifetime breeding costs for dogs

First of all, I will draw the conclusion first. The lifetime breeding cost for dogs is said to be around 3.5 million to 4.5 million yen, assuming that they lived to be 15 years old. There are two reasons why the vertical width is wide.

1: Pet food varies from cheap to expensive. On average, 4000-5000 yen is enough, but you can spend as much money as you want for luxury. Therefore, pet food can only be said to be up to the owner.
2: Dogs get sick and have to pay for treatment. However, the cost of this treatment and the illnesses that are likely to develop vary depending on the individual. Therefore, it cannot be said unconditionally. Dogs that are susceptible to illness inevitably have high medical costs.

The breakdown of average expenses is as follows. The cost is converted in Japanese yen.

itemAverage cost
Dog breed registration3000yen
vaccination3500yen
Medical examination5000-8000yen
toilet2000-5000yen
Toilet wipes1000yen per a month
Pet food4000yen per a month
Care brush1500yen
Pet carry3000yen
trimming7000yen per a month

Toilets, pet food and trimmings are always incurred every month. In addition, an annual health check will be as essential as a human being. Others are expensive to cut once, but please be aware that each time you get sick, you will be charged.

Pet insurance

Dogs get sick like humans. Many people take out pet insurance to reduce medical expenses at that time. If you do, you need to consider it as an additional cost. Pet insurance has the following merits, depending on the contract details.

Medical bills

Since dogs are living things like humans, they can get sick. It is no exaggeration to say that the cost of a lifetime can be determined by how much it will cost for this disease. I have summarized what kind of illnesses dogs have and how much the treatment cost will be. The cost is converted in Japanese yen.

In the case of dogs, there are various types from large to small, so the type of disease that causes the disease also changes. If you need hospitalization or surgery, please estimate about 100,000 yen plus. Short-legged dogs such as dachshunds and toy poodles are more likely to suffer from hernias.

Initial cost

There is always an initial cost when you keep a dog. There are play equipment such as carry and toys, but the most important thing is the body. Vaccines and castration surgery will occur. I tried to summarize how much it will cost in Japanese yen.
