It's no wonder we need pet coupons, discounts and great deals because we own lots and lots of pets! Today, with something like 377 million pets, the U.S. (the third most populous country in the world with 312,816,000 people) has more pets than people!!
Sometimes others may wonder if we own the pet or if it's the other way around. But either way we are drawn to our pets for their companionship, loyalty, playfulness, usefulness (home protection [dog] and pest control [cat]), appearance, and even for their songs.
Pets have been shown to help relieve stress to those who like having animals around. There is now a medically-approved class of "therapy animals," mostly dogs, that are brought to visit confined human friends.
Did you know, something like 71 million American households own pets with cats (94M) being more popular than dogs (78M) but remarkably the pets called fish outnumber them both at 172 million?!
So what are our pets worth to us?? The average cost of dog over its lifetime is about - are you ready for this? - $33,000! But any pet owner will argue that 1) It can't be that much! and 2) my best friend's well worth that!
Many health benefits have been associated with the companionship, exercise and responsibility of pet ownership include:
lowered blood pressure
reduced triglycerides and lower heart disease risk
So with all of these benefits, it's no wonder that we want to take the best care possible of our pet friends. Of course, the primary ways we do that is to provide them with a safe and clean home, a way to get regular exercise, good nutrition and - when they need them - quality medicines.
Certainly, there are great vets and pet stores - and even grocery stores - that offer these products but we've chosen to feature the best online pet product stores for your pet coupons, discounts and great deals.
