Bringing a new puppy home for the first time can be as stressful as it is wonderful. It can also be expensive particularly when it comes to our new puppy’s health. Just as with a new baby, you come across all kinds of “issues” that make you wish you could call your mom, and that mom was a vet. Well, no need for mom! There’s a new innovative approach to pet insurance that takes a proactive, preventative approach to pet insurance, making it easier to protect your puppy’s health and your pocket.
Expenses can add up before you know it
You know they’ll need their shots and you may want to get them spayed or neutered. Then there’s the microchip, so they don’t get lost. Perhaps more importantly, you are going to want to make regular visits to the vet, to get ahead of any problems and make sure everything is as it should be. That way, your puppy is protected and you sleep better at night. But it all costs money, potentially a lot of money.
According to the AKC (American Kennel Club) “Excluding the initial cost of purchasing or adopting a dog, most estimates for the first year of dog ownership fall somewhere between $1,600 and $2,000.”
According to Emergency Vets USA, these are the average costs for emergency treatment
|Procedure||Small Dog||Big Dog|
|General Blood Work||$80-200||$80-200|
|1-2 Day Hospitalization (Vomiting/diarrhea, seizures)||$600-1500||$800-1700|
|3-5 day hospitalization (Kidney failure, parvo)||$1500-3000||$2000-3500|
|Wound treatment & repair||$800-$2000||$1000- $2500|
|Emergency surgery – (bloat, foreign body, hit by car)||$1800-3000||$2000-5000|
|Oxygen therapy,- (Heart failure, pneumonia, asthma)||$800-$2500||$1000-3000|
