Our nests may be empty but Baby Boomers love to fill that space with at least a pet or two. In fact, according to Forbes, Baby Boomers are spending about 60 Billion annually pampering them. And why not? They give us comfort, reduce our stress, and are just plain fun to be around. Baby Boomers and pets have a relationship 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 will always remember pets that were famous on TV when we were children 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.
We love our Pets!
- Wisdom Panel – Find out your dog’s DNA – I did this test on my two dogs who are mutts and it was amazing. I found out they weren’t exactly the breeds I thought they were. It’s a great test if you want to discover their 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.
- 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.
- Pet clothes – You can find all sorts of fun pet clothes at reasonable prices on Chewy, Etsy and also at Target.
- Pup Science – We want our pets to stay as healthy as possible for as long as we have them. Pup Science offers complete health bundle that includes a hip and joint formula for dogs, a probiotic with multi-vitamins and hemp oil to manage pain, anxiety, and allergies.
- Unusual pet concerns – One of my pets is an indiscriminate pisser and we live in an apartment so he has to wear a male wrap. The problem is, most wraps fall off. I found a wrap that has straps that attach to his harness at Etsy. It stays on and I can insert a disposable doggie diaper if necessary or just wash it out when he has an accident.
