Pet owners feel the top benefit of owning a pet is companionship, love and affection. They feel their pets provide them with relaxation and relieve stress in their lives. Dog owners say that their pets provide them with more exercise than they would be getting on their own and get them outside more often. All pets are enjoyable to watch and provide much needed companionship no matter what kind of pet they are. Even fish are fun to watch and take care of.
Pets are living longer and healthier lives thanks to pet owner’s willingness to provide veterinary care, specialty foods, supplements, and alternative treatment options. More and more people are starting to treat their pets like family members. They buy insurance plans for them. Take them on vacation, bring them to social gatherings and even buy gifts for them. The number of U.S. households that own a pet is at an all time high of 72.9 million. That doesn’t even account for the number of households that have multiple pets. Currently there are 78 million dogs in the U.S. and 86.4 million cats! That doesn’t even take into account the number of birds, fish, reptiles, small animals and horses whose numbers are also in the millions. Approximately four-out-of-ten pet owning households in the U.S. are multiple pet owners. We do love our pets!
