National Pet Day – Approaching
As the title says, National Pet Day is approaching just after Easter on April 11th. And, the entire month of April is aimed at Awareness of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. So, what might you do special for an animal this month?
Pets in America
Forbes Advisor gives us statistics on pets in American households as of 2022. In their study dated 2023, 70% of US households own a pet, that is 90.5 million homes. That number is up from 56 percent in 1988. Dogs are shown as most popular with 69 million in US homes. Cats follow in 45.3 million homes. Next are freshwater fish in 11.8 million households. Pet birds, bunnies, and ferrets follow along with reptiles and amphibians. The study by Forbes states that pet ownership here in the United States has “increased significantly over the past three decades” with a great number acquiring a pet during the pandemic.
Of course with the increase in household pets we also have pet insurance increasing to safeguard our pets as well as the pet industry as a whole which has grown to a whopping 123.6 billion up over 19 percent (106.3 billion) from 2020.
Since Easter is coming up fast maybe rescuing a bunny would be a great idea for your family or even just you alone. But in any case, if you already do have a pet or pets, think of some great ways to safeguard them during this Awareness oF Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month and see some special treats made in the USA for your pets for our National Pet Day following.
Love and Safety for your Doggo
Be sure to check on the safety of the food you are giving your dogs. There are several natural treats great to perk them up for USA pet day and then there are many that are harmful. Check out the list here in ‘Pet Poison Prevention Awareness”. And during winter, of course, many road salt type products are bad. Remember to check labels on products you use before applying them where your dog may get to them. And do always check your food labels in case of any allergy your fur friend may have.
Do try some good safe USA-made collapsible travel water bowls for outings by AmericanDog.Co in Commerce City, Colorado and perhaps USA-made pet stairs for an easier climb to your bed or sofa by Best Pet Supplies of Jamaica, New York – great for senior dogs, smaller dogs, and dogs with joint problems.
How about yummy natural USA-made chews of one ingredient from ChasingOurTails.com in Minnota, Minnesota.
Extra Love and Safe Keeping for your Cat
As with dogs there are several unsafe foods for your kitty and also some good natural treats you can use. Check out my post for cats in “Pet Poison Preventon Awareness“. Also do remember to check food labels for your kitty. And keep any chemical products you use out of your cat’s reach.
Also use a safety release collar and a harness if you walk your cat.
To celebrate USA pet day use some USA-made 100% biodegradable skin care, shampoo, odor, stain, and itch & ear products to make them feel so special and comfy from BestShotPets.com of Frankfort, Kentucky.
How about a treat maze or a puzzle feeder to get their attention and keep their interest from USA-made products of CatAmazing.com in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Be sure to include some delish USA-made treats.
You might think about a special meal from DrMartypets.com of USA-made frieze-dried raw organ meat, vegs, and fruit or pure catnip toys from USA-made products by DrPussums.com of Maine.
Special Love and Safety for your Bird
Do remember to keep your birdie out of drafts and to cover them with a good breathable cover at night for good sleep. You can find great USA-made covers through PrevuePet.com of Chicago, Illinois which are lightweight, breathable, and non-toxic for your feathered friend. Prevue also offers natural wood perches.
Your birdy would be in heaven with a USA natural handmade toy and a snack table offered by HootnHollerbirdtoys.com of Alabama.
