As the economic struggles continue in the UK, the effects of the 2008 recession can still be felt seven years later. Everyone has been affected, including pet owners, some of whom simply cannot afford their beloved pets basic needs.

PDSA, the UK’s leading veterinary charity, saw a 7{e6dc0ce1f5f2d55dfae0d52ad2d0517dcccd33a50aebb63591eb191fe8579ab6} rise in pet patients during the year following the recession with owneMoney Saving Dogrs struggling to pay vets’ bills because of redundancies and job cuts. On top of that, there was a massive 57{e6dc0ce1f5f2d55dfae0d52ad2d0517dcccd33a50aebb63591eb191fe8579ab6} rise in abandoned pets with over 11,000 pets being left homeless. As financial strains continue through many households around the country, cutting costs without comncluding essentials such as not missing vaccinations as prevention is usually cheaper than the cure.
