Yup. I am one of those people—an unabashed animal lover.
But I’m certainly not alone. According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), Americans spent $58.04 billion (yes, I said billion) on their pets in 2014. While it isn’t too surprising that $22.26 billion was spent on food, more than $28 billion was spent on vet care, supplies and OTC medicine. Clearly it is important to us to keep our pet friends happy and healthy.
