How much did you spend on your dog last year?

March 4, 2012 · Print This Article

The American Pet Products Association reports that Americans spent $50.96 billion (yes, that’s a “b”) on their pets in 2011, the first time that number has broken $50 billion.  What did we spend it on?  About 65% goes to the essentials:  food and veterinary care.  The biggest growth category?  Services, including boarding, grooming, day care, and pet sitting, rose from $3.5 billion in 2010 to nearly $3.8 billion last year.  I guess that might be one indicator that the economy is improving!

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
