Things to Consider When Getting a Pet in 2022

Pets are wonderful things. They can raise our spirits, add purpose and meaning to our daily routines, and become a fully fledged member of the family in no time.

But no matter how big or small it’s no secret that pets can be extremely costly, so before you take the plunge, it’s important to consider whether you can afford one when it comes to organising your finances. If you’ve done the calculations and you’re confident you’re in a stable enough position to bring a pet into your life, there are a few basics you’ll need to be aware of.

In this article, we look at what different elements you need to consider when it comes to getting a pet.


When coming to the decision as to whether you can afford to invest in a furry friend, you should be aware of all the costs involved. Only then can you ascertain whether or not you can realistically keep on top of the financial demands. There are three main costs to consider: insurance, food, and equipment. Pet insurance can be pricey – as well as your monthly fee, it requires you to pay an excess on top of the cover if your pet requires medical attention. Remember, our pets can’t tell us exactly what’s wrong with them, which often results in more trips to the vets to get to the bottom of any unusual behaviour. Alongside this, there are monthly food costs as well as any accessories they might need – such as beds, leads, and toys.


This one often goes overlooked, but you must consider whether you truly have the sort of lifestyle that cater to having a pet. Dogs and puppies require constant attention and training, therefore aren’t suitable for someone who’s constantly away on business. Different pets have different levels of demand, so be sure to keep this in mind when deciding what pet to choose. The most important thing to think about is what quality of life you can offer your new pet.


This one is an important mention purely because so many couples and families can take on a new pet without fully considering the enormity of this decision. A pet is for life, not just for a little while. You’ve got to be prepared to make lifestyle sacrifices to properly care for your pet. If you’re someone with a hectic social calendar, think very carefully about whether or not you’d be happy to give that up. Dogs and cats can’t be left on their own and at the very least need feeding and access to daily exercise. But more than that, our pets need consistency and routine. To have you as their owner who they can trust and rely upon to care for them. Pets become a priority and impact all plans, from weekend trips to holidays abroad, social functions, and more. Be sure to consider all of this before taking the plunge.
