Default Do dogs really get more love than cats

Do dogs really get more love than cats? Is that true?

According to an article in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA) from the Feb 15. issue, a report titled "Perceptions and Attitudes of Pet owners Executive Summary", dogs get more love and better care than cats.

According to the study - dog owners took their dogs to the veterinarian more often than cat owners and were more apt to seek vaccinations, check-ups, and dental care. It was estimated in the report that only 13% of dogs didn't see a veterinarian annually as compared to 33% of cats. Also, dogs owner spend about 45 hours per week with them while cat owners only spend about 32 hours with their kitties.

Why you may ask? Possible reasons include that some dog owners believe that dogs need more care because they go outside. Some pet owners have the false belief that cats don't get sick or can take care of themselves.

Whether you have a dog or a cat... make sure you give them a little extra love today.

Until next time, Dr.Jon
