At this time of year we celebrate faith, spirituality, health, happiness and prosperity.
We also reaffirm our desire for peace and the wellbeing of humanity and all creatures on Earth.
My special thoughts go out to those who care for companion animals around the world.
May you keep your precious pets healthy, happy and safe!
Based on industry studies conducted in the United States, a dog owner will typically spend around $1,641 per year per pet. For someone who owns a cat, that amount will be roughly $1,125.
The biggest expense is generally food and food treats, followed by veterinary care and then pet supplies together with OTC medicines.
