With our current financial situation people are cutting back everywhere and putting off that major purchase like a home or a new car. But when it comes to our pets, folks are spending more than ever. In a recent survey from the American Pet Products Association Americans are putting thier animals welfare before thier own. 73 Million American households, have more than one pet. Americans are expected to spend about 12.2 billion at the vet this year alone up from 8.2 billion five years ago. Would you take your pet to the vet before you go to the docotor?
