What Is The Cost of Veterinary Care for Dogs and Cats?

If you have been to the vet lately, you may have experienced sticker shock. You aren’t alone. Pet parents are expected to spend more than $15 billion on veterinary care this year, which has been increasing nearly 6% year over year for the past decade.

At the same time, veterinary medicine is making more extensive testing and treatment options readily available to pet owners – allowing pets to live longer, happier lives. Previously reserved for their human counterparts, pets are now able to be treated for almost anything from arthritis and anxiety to cancer and seizures.
