People in the United States love their pets. The vast majority (94%) report that they smile more than once a day because of their pet. Americans spent $60.28 on their pets and $5.41 to board and groom their pets in 2015. Like people, our pets suffer from a variety of health problems that are similar to ours.

It is not unusual for dry skin on cats to be a real problem, for instance. There are things you can do at home to help your cat feel better when they are not feeling great.
