The American Pet Products Association announced that the U.S. has spent over $50 billion in the past year on their pets. $450 million of that was for pet insurance, $3.79 billion was for pet services such as grooming and hotels, and food and veterinary costs added up to 65% of the figure. One couple however, decided to take things to the next level when it came to pampering their dog…
In England, a couple named Denise and David Smart, dropped $13,000 on a tummy tuck, facelift and other surgeries for their dog!! They did it for their 5 year old blood hound because he has a rare disease that causes excess skin to develop on his body which grows skin flaps over his eyes so he can’t see. With the surgeries, their blood hound, Junior, is more mobile and can live life to the fullest!
Slacker’s dog Mojo has two of the most extravagant beds ever and he claims it’s just because he’s old and has hip problems, but he loves his dog! Last year, he paid for surgeries for one of his ears and extracted teeth.
I can’t say I have given my dog a tummy tuck or anything, but I love my dog so much I would do whatever it takes to keep her safe and make sure she is happy. I will buy her so many treats, chew toys, bones… Anything! She has her favorites so we pile up on those and she loves her walks so off course I will take her everyday! At night, she even gets her own little space although most of the time she thinks that means the entire bed including my pillow. I still love my pup though!
Do you pamper your pet?
