There are some things that are more important than money. It could be love, your family, friends, or even your favorite best friend aka your pets.
PetMeds is known for taking care of your pets and making sure they’re feeling good and healthy. In particular, though, this survey takes things a bit further and delves into what pet parents are willing to do.
Regardless if you’ve had your pets for over a decade or are new to the game, these results might echo with you more than you imagine.
Petmeds shares a fun new survey about pets and their parents.
Let’s start by sharing that this survey was given to 2,000 pet owners and you might be shocked at some of the findings. Beginning with going to work, ⅔ of the people interviewed shared that their pets have a strong reaction when they leave for work. I can attest to that, as my dogs and cats always run to their cage since they know they’re getting a treat.
As for those dealing with anxious pets, their main way to soothe them is by petting and cuddling them. Given the effects of COVID, it makes sense that 42% of pet owners have seen changes in their pet’s mental health along with 52% reporting an increase in separation anxiety.
The thing that stood out most to me was that “4 out of 10 pet parents would take a lower salary to work from home and be with their pets.” Given how it seems like a lot of people are headed back to the office, this makes a lot of sense. In addition, pet parents usually report missing their pets after being away from them for less than an hour.
This survey was honestly pretty eye-opening and gave some insights that my fellow pet parents can relate to. If you’re a pet parent, I’d love to know your thoughts and if you agree or disagree with what was shared.
