Dogs, Cats, Fish and Birds -- How Much Do They Cost Every Year?

petexpenses.jpg

As you know cats can live 15 to 20 years and dogs 10 to 15 years. We love them dearly, but the cost does add up. According to How Much Does Owning A Pet Cost In A Year? | Bankrate.com here are the annual stats:

  • Average yearly cost for a dog: $580 to $875.
  • Average yearly cost for a cat: $670.
  • Average yearly cost for a bird: up to $200.
  • Average yearly cost for fish: $35.

So if you want a pet but are all about costs, fish are the best bet. But possibly not the most rewarding. And even though those vet visits are not cheap, preventive medicine is the way to go. Check-ups can catch problems early when they are likely less expensive and good care can ward off many illnesses.


Jeff Blyskal, senior editor of Consumer Reports magazine, says pet owners should think twice before buying health insurance for their pets. "They scare you with the worst-case scenario, and the worst-case scenario is very unlikely," he says.

He says it's better to "self-insure" by socking away money on your own for any medical costs and unexpected emergencies.

And no matter how much pet food companies market fancy ingredients and additives, Blyskal also recommends no-frills pet foods, which still have to meet industry standards. "Those extra things have not been proven to have any benefit," he says.

Also, avoid overfeeding pets or slipping them table scraps. "They'll get diseases like humans," such as diabetes and heart disease, he says.

Oh sure, just look at those big brown eyes. Maybe just a smidgin.

Lixit Quick Lock Bird Bath Installs Easily on the Cage

cagebirdbath.jpg

Our cockatiels live in a sub-tropical climate. When it rains, they lift their wings and fluff up their feathers for a bath, even though they are dry inside on the porch. We generally spritz them when they do this.

We are now looking seriously at installing this Quick Lock Bird Bath on their cage, a durable plastic twist on/off bathing dish. It is easy to clean and can be perched inside or outside of the cage. Ideal for lovebirds, canaries, finches, parakeets, cockatiels and other small and medium sized birds.

Handcarved Coffea Tree Bird Perch

coffeatreeperch.jpg

Anyone who lives with a bird knows that they they will perch just about anywhere as long as it is above your head. Or then again, they may be happy under your desk perched on computer cords. This Handcarved Coffea Tree Bird Perch provides birds with a natural habitat to play on.

The perch is created from a single coffee tree that's 25 to 35 years old, whose twisting branches grow horizontally and have varied diameters, providing a comfortable perch for birds of any size to rest or walk on. The 4 foot tall tree also has seven to 10 branches that are spaced far enough apart to provide birds room to play and flap their wings.

The trunk has two 3D birds carved into its surface. Two bird seed bowls attached to the perch hold bird seed, along with two hanging toys for pecking fun. It comes with a quality Kamper wood base to collect the falling seeds with four locking casters for ease of mobility.

Jungle Talk Plane Swing for Small and Medium Birds

jungletalkplaneswing.jpg

Don't forget your sweet pet birds this Christmas! Our cocktatiel is in the "birdhouse" after chewing on some forbidden wicker porch furniture, so he might find coal in his stocking. But, after all, he is just being a bird.

Maybe he will be better behaved with some new cage activities, but we seriously doubt it. This cute ride-on Jungle Talk Plane Swing has a swing perch designed for small and medium birds. It attaches to the cage with a stainless steel, tamper-resistant lock.
