When it comes to the expense of owning a pet, the possibility of large vet’s bills can often outweigh every other financial consideration. In the UK, we are lucky to have the NHS to fall back on if we become ill or suffer an injury, but when our pets need medical attention the costs of veterinary treatment can be considerable.
One way to reduce the likelihood of having to pay large vet bills is ensure your pet stays in the best of health and avoids accidents. Both cats and dogs can suffer horrendous injuries in collisions with cars, so it is best practice to always keep your dog on a lead when in close proximity to traffic. If possible, only let your cat out into a garden or space behind houses as opposed to letting it out of the front door that leads onto the road.
