Our kids may have left the nest, but you never have to feel lonely if you have a pet. According to Forbes, Baby Boomers are spending about 60 Billion annually pampering them. They give us comfort, reduce our stress, and are just plain fun to be around. We have a relationship with pet love that started when we were kids. As our parents moved into suburban tract homes it was natural to have a pet living in our homes. And, of course, we’ll always remember pets that were famous on TV when we were kids like Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, and The Shaggy Dog. So, whether you own a Lady or a Tramp, here are a few ways you can pamper your pet.
Have your pet supplies sent to your home
- Chewy – I always order my dog’s dog food on Chewy and have also bought leashes, pet beds, and other products. I love that I can give them my dog’s vet to verify his prescription food. My shipment always arrives within a day or two. You can order pet meds, pet clothing, dental supplies and so much more. They cover all sorts of animals including turtles, gerbils, hamsters, and horses. One of my dogs was diagnosed with diabetes and they send his meds through the mail as well.
Discover your pet’s ancestry
- Wisdom Panel – I DNA-tested my two dogs who are mutts and it was amazing. You can read about it here. It turned out they weren’t the mix of breeds I thought they were. Wisdom Panel is a wonderful test if you want to discover your pet’s heritage for health reasons or just for fun. All it takes is a simple cheek swab. Then you can mail it in and receive results in about 2-3 weeks.
