According to Derek Thompson, author of "These 4 Charts Explain Exactly How Americans Spend $52 Billion on Our Pets in a Year", published online in 2013 by The Atlantic, "In 2012, Americans spent over $4.1 billion dollars on pet grooming and boarding." And Marie Engen, author of the Boomer & Echo online article "How Much Do We Spend on Our Pets?" tells readers "Canadian households, on average, spend over $1,800 annually on each dog in the family, and $1400 on each cat. This covers food, treats, vet, meds, litter, grooming, toys and other paraphernalia."No matter where you live, that's a lot of money.
