Dogs have 100 different facial expressions, most involving the ears.

Cats have over 100 vocal sounds.

If you’re a pet lover, chances are you might already know the above fun facts about dogs and cats. You’ve likely experienced them. Here are a few other facts about pets:

  • There are approximately 77.5 million pet dogs in the U.S.*
  • Dog owners spend an average of $225 annually on veterinary visits*
  • There are approximately 93.6 million pet cats in the U.S.*
  • Cat owners spend an average of $203 annually on veterinary visits*

If you consider the entire U.S. pet market, pet lovers spent $53 billion on pet care in 2009 (including veterinary services, pet food, non-food pet supplies, grooming, boarding, etc.). It is projected that amount will climb to $70 billion by 2014.** Yes, we do love our pets!

Have you ever thought about a health plan for your beloved pet(s)? The cost of veterinary care is rising. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, from 1991 to 2006, such costs nearly tripled. Ouch. It’s no wonder more and more pet owners are turning to pet insurance.

Having pet insurance provides peace of mind by helping reduce the budget hit of unexpected veterinary bills. It also provides the freedom for you to opt for the best treatment available for your pet’s condition. Big time retailers like Home Depot and eBay even offer employees pet insurance as a benefit!

And now, Vantage is proud to announce that we offer pet insurance at discounted rates to our members!

This plan is available through PurinaCare®. The name Purina should tell you all you need to know about the quality of this care. Is there any more respected company that knows more about our pets?
