Owning a dog in the Philippines roughly costs P12,000 to PP50,000 in a year. This means providing the right essentials like food, regular check-ups with vet, grooming, and preparing for contingencies.Truly, taking care of another living being can take a big chunk out of anyone’s finances. To be responsible pet owner, one needs to plan ahead for what his or her fur baby might need because the commitment to look after them is long term.Thankfully, in a time where one can avail of services with just a tap or a click, fur parents can also keep pets (and their finances) ready for whatever emergencies.
