Pets on a Pedestal – Spending Big Bucks on Bowzer –Dave’s Diary

Cat and dog owners are putting their pets up on pedestals like never before. In fact, a recent survey says the average owner would gladly pay a vet more than $1,500 to save his or her pet’s life.In a breakdown by pet, dog owners would spring for a little more cash paying  $1,824 and cat owners would pay $1,309. And that vet bill would have probably been even higher if the owners’ answers had not been limited to speaking on behalf the health needs of their oldest pet.

In the survey by Consumer Reports, 14 percent of the subscribers polled proclaimed that “price was no object” when it came to buying the best commercially prepared pet vittles. And 1 percent of the 1,3000 owners polled said they made most of the pet’s food themselves.
