Vets Tell Us Which Dog Breeds Will Cost You The Most

Our dogs are like another member of the family, but some breeds have more health problems than others and Australian vets have told us which ones are likely to cost the most.

Larger dog breeds and short-nosed dog breeds have incurred the highest medical costs, according to Pawssum vets Dr Tim White and Dr Kris Fennell.

Larger dog breeds include:

  • Bernese Mountain Dogs
  • Tibetan Mastiffs
  • Newfoundlands

Their frequent vet visits are often because their size makes them prone to elbow dysplasia, musculoskeletal issues and higher medicinal costs for the larger weight.
