For the happy owners of dogs or cats, happiness is sometimes expensive in health costs for these four-legged companions. Costs that are often their responsibility, as evidenced by the mistress of several dogs, who confides spending up to 500 euros per year for one of them. And when health problems arise, expenses skyrocket. One of his bitches was operated on three times, which cost him more than 10,000 euros in two years. His mistress had to take out a loan.
So why are our pets so expensive? On average, owners spend 280 euros per year for a cat, and 400 euros for a dog. Are these amounts justified? To examine a dog, a Parisian veterinarian charges 54 euros, the same for a cat, which is twice the price of a consultation with a doctor for a human. Unlike general practitioners, veterinarians’ prices are free.
