The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) reports that more than 36% of family units in the United States–or approximately 43,346,000–have dogs, while over 30% of families in the country are cat owners, with about 74,059,000 pet cats.
If you yourself have a cat or dog at home, you’ll want to make sure that you and your pet have access high-quality veterinarian hospitals in your area, in case a medical situation should arise. After all, the typical American pet cat needs about $90 worth of medical treatments annually, while the typical American pet dog needs this medical coverage totaling $227 on a yearly basis.
These local clinics should be staffed with experienced veterinarian technicians who have made innumerable diagnoses and have treated all sorts of ailments. Nothing should be a surprise to these local veterinarians.
What if you are planning on taking a short-term or long-term trip on which your pet cannot go? In that case, you’ll want to find dependable boarding kennels where pets stay and are treated well. They should have access to all the necessary medical treatment they need, and of course proper diet and exercise should be implemented daily.
