The National Pet Owners Survey from the American Pet Products Association (APPA) updates pet ownership throughout the country, highlighting the growth or reduction in different categories. Most of us think of pets as cats and dogs, but while these pets dominate the market (approx. 83M dogs and 95M cats are in the US), the report also includes information on fresh water fish, birds, horses, small animals, reptiles and salt water fish.
I always enjoy this information because of the huge interest and importance of pets in our culture. It’s interesting to see that nutrition supplements and medications are growing, along with veterinarian visits for emergencies, sickness and surgeries. Vets are the top expenses for dog, cat and bird owners. This report is a fantastic insight into a major change in our culture regarding pets. A pet was once outside the family, but not anymore. Pets are family!
