Americans spend $41 billion a year on their pets. This is double the amount spent on pets a decade ago.”Pet economy” is expected to grow to $52 billion in the next two years.
Money spent on pets go into categories such as food, medicines, and services.Food accounts for 40 percent of all money spent on pets, followed by veterinary care and over-the-counter medicines.As people spend more time, attention, and money on their pets, a number of niches have emerged within this economy.An example of an entrepreneur who has exploited a niche is Gregg A. Miller, whose product Neuticles is a patented testicular implant (for neutered dogs) that sells for $919 a pair. The pet economy shows no signs of slowing down.
