BlogPaws Celebrates Senior Pets

senior_Pets_month_BPAccording to AVMA’s U.S. Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook, pet ownership was up in 2012, especially among people who were divorced, widowed or separated. This group saw a 17.7 percent increase from 51.3 percent pet ownership in 2006 to 60.4 percent in 2011. Even more impressive, pet ownership among single men increased by 27.7 percent. Many pets are from shelters and many are not puppies or kittens, so the population of older pets is definitely on the increase.
