Just came back from the vet for both the dog and the cat's annual visit, vaccines, bloodwork, fecal tests, and another year's worth of heartworm meds. It was over $500 for both critters. Ouch! I know it's important, but it's soooo much money! That took a chunk out of our tax refund.
Before we got our pets, we did research on the internet to get an idea of how much we'd need to budget for them. The estimates were all much lower than reality. We easily spend at LEAST double what the estimates said, and we don't even really even pamper our animals (we take care of them, but we don't spend excess money on unnecessary stuff). We love our critters, but they are definitely a budget flop!
