What Americans spend on pets
I ran across the following mind-blowing numbers – and came to the conclusion that there are vast sums of money out there if one is creative enough to capitalize on what people are willing to buy!
$38 Billion – Amount Americans spent on pet food and care in 2006, nearly double that spent 10 years ago
$2,000 – cost of a doggie nose job in Los Angeles
$395 – cost of a Burberry dog bed
$50 – price of an oatmeal body wrap for big dogs at LA Dogworks, a doggie spa
47% of dog owners say they buy holiday or birthday gifts for their pets.
