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.

|7000yen 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.
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.
|This is a compensation system in case a pet harms other animals or humans or destroys an object.
|It is a system that you can receive when you have surgery for cancer.
|Medical certificate cost compensation
|A medical certificate may be required when making an insurance claim, but we will cover the cost of the medical certificate.
|Compensation for actual costs such as cremation costs.
|Auxiliary equipment compensation
|It covers the cost of equipment when your pet becomes crippled due to illness or injury.
|Embedding microchips is required by law in some countries, but it offers a discount on this cost.
|If you have multiple pets and get insurance, you may get a discount on the cost.
|Insurance premium discount
|Insurance premiums may be discounted depending on the number of times the insurance is used.
The coverage varies depending on the pet insurance company. Please contact your insurance company for details.
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.
|Average treatment cost
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.
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.
