The Bottom Line on Budgeting for a Pet

  • Budget at least $200 for the pet’s first month. While you might spend less, buying supplies, establishing a vet, getting vaccines, and getting your pet spayed or neutered will quickly eat up most of it.
  • For dog obedience classes, prepare to budget an additional $150 in your second or third month.
  • For cats, budget around $10-$20 for kitty litter each month.
  • Finally, budget an additional $20-$50 per month for food, depending on how much your pet eats.
