In a recent National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), it reveals that at least 68 percent of the households in the United States own a pet. This means that around 85 million families have adopted and nurtured at least one pet in their homes. Most households are providing shelter for dogs and cats.
The same national survey also shows the basic yearly expenditures for pets: surgical and routinary veterinary, food, kennel boarding, vitamins, grooming, and toys. Pet-industry expenditures accounted to at least $69.4 billion in 2017.
There are traditional events that every family observes in their households: Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year, and Halloween. While the lovely pets can join the fun, there are certain hazards that these traditional events may pose to animals. With a growing number of households that are keen to raise pets, animal lovers tend to forget one important matter—keeping their pets safe and sound.
