Re: Average Costs
It is hard for me to say since we have had multiple dogs for over two years now, but if I only had one dog, I would be willing to guess at:
-around $50 per month on food (depending on quality)
-$100 year for regular vet bills (basic annual vaccines)
-$100 year for preventatives (heartworm, flea/tick)
Plus, you will be buying things like treats, toys and equipment (leashes, collars, tags, beds, crates, dog bowls, etc.) on an as needed basis...which also add up quickly.
I would check with your local vet to find out prices on annual shots and preventatives so you can get a little more accurate pricing for budgeting purposes.
Hope that helps a little.
