Did you know that there are more dog owners than
cat owners in America, but more cats than dogs in
those homes?

According to the Pet Ownership and Demographic
Sourcebook there are 43 million dog owning households
compared with 37.5 million cat owning households, but
81.7 million cats compared to 72 million dogs. Not
surprisingly, women were the primary caregivers to most of
them. About 64% of all pet-owning households owned
more than one pet, and those pet owners spent a total of
$24.5 billion on veterinary care in 2006.

According to a new survey report just released, the
number of cat-owning households in United States has
increased while the number of veterinary visits for cats has
decreased. U.S. Pet Ownership & Demographics show an
increase in the cat population coupled with a continued
decline in veterinary visits for cats. The percentage of
cat-owning households that received no veterinary care in
2006 was 36.3 percent, compared to 17.3 percent of
dog-owning households. There are an estimated 82 million
cats in the United States, yet cats are twice as likely as
dogs not to see a veterinarian. As a result, many feline
diseases or illnesses go undiagnosed and untreated.
