The aim is to make his move as stress free as possible. I rather him not travel and find someone to look after him. Budget is 30k. I agree you rather it be empty than trashy.
Need to know your budget that you are willing to spend on rent. Without any work lined up, you are going to burn through cash.
Yep. That sounds pretty much HK. You burn more cash than calories in a minute.
Just wanted to check the situation with medical insurance for dogs in HK. Did you arrange one beforehand or when you got there? How expensive are vets in HK and do you still have to pay excess under medical insurance. Which one would you recommend?
Typically we spend HKD $3000 a year for vaccinations and a blood test (required by kennels because of his age). This wouldn't be covered by insurance anyway.
He had an operation last year for a cyst under general anaesthetic, total cost was $5k including medication and after care.
From memory they wanted to charge us more for insurance because of his breed and being a large dog, plus cover only until 8 years old.
Thank you for your reply. The costs seem reasonably similar to what we pay here so that's good to know. Our dog turns 8 in a few weeks and he is a large breed, so we may have the same issue with insurance. What about your personal medical insurance, is that something necessary or you pay as and when necessary.
Public medical facilities are good and free if you are resident ( minor charges for access at public hospitals $50 - 180), you pay for GPs unless you go to a govt clinic.
