Welcome to the Job Price’s guide to keeping a pet in the United Kingdom.
If you’ve never owned a pet before and would like an idea of how much they cost to maintain, then you’ve come to the right place.
We have six in-depth help guides for you to digest and hopefully, we’ll produce more soon, depending on how popular these pages become:
Man’s Best Friend – The Dog
This is an excellent guide for anyone who has never owned a dog before.
We explain all the costs you can expect to incur, including but not limited to; food, insurance, vet bills, toys and kenneling.

Not Quite Man’s Best Friend But a Close Second
A feline companion is cheaper than a dog but how much does it really cost to own a cat for an entire lifetime?
Read our insightful and in-depth guide to cat ownership costs here.
Rabbits – A Cheaper Alternative Or Are They?
Here we dig into the costs you can expect to pay to own a rabbit.
Puppy Vaccinations and Boosters
Puppies and dogs require vaccines and immunisations to protect them from illnesses and diseases.
How much do they cost and often do they need to be administered?
Explore our guide to canine vaccines here.
Kitten and Cat Vaccines
Just like dogs, cats require vaccines and boosters to keep them healthy and to prevent the spread of harmful diseases.
Check out our guide here for more information about your options and prices.
Going Away on Holiday?
Before you buy a pet, you’ll need to think about who will look after it when you go on holiday.
Will you ask a friend or relative? Would they be happy to look after your pet everytime you go away?
Kennels and catteries offer services to pet owners and if your animal is accustomed to a life of luxury at home, you can even choose a cat or dog “hotel”.
We contacted 10 kenneling firms in the UK and asked them to provide us with a price to look after a cat and dog for two weeks.
This page reveals the results of our research into cat and dog kenneling costs.
More Coming Soon
We’ll be updating this page with more price and information guides soon.
