You cannot put a price on love. Pet parents don’t just tolerate spending money on their pets, they love it. US pet parents spend $140+ per month on their pets. That $140 is just general pet necessities like food, pet products, toys, etc. However, when a pet’s health is at stake, pet parents will go above and beyond to save their pets. US pet parents are willing to spend up to $10,725 on medical treatments for a pet in need. There has also been an exponential increase in the purchases of pet insurance, which further proves the lengths pet parents will go to ensure their pet is healthy.
Not to mention the increased popularity in pet birthday parties, birthday gifts, holiday gifts, and other new ways to spoil our nation’s pets. In today’s age, it has become clear that pets are more than just pets, they are part of the family. These family members are getting pampered and spoiled while their parents are more than okay with the spending that accompanies this star treatment. Pet parents love to keep their fur-children happy, no matter the cost.
