Our kids may have left the nest, but pet lovers still have their pets. According to Forbes, people over 50 are spending about 60 Billion annually on them. They relieve our stress and are fun to be around. When you are pampering your pets and making them part of your family, you can never be alone.
We have a relationship with pets that started when we were kids
As our parents moved into suburban tract homes it was natural to have our pets living in our homes. And, of course, we’ll always remember the dogs and cats who 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 pets.
Have your pet supplies sent to your home
- Chewy – I always order my pet food on Chewy and have also bought leashes, pet beds, and other pet pampering products. 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. When one of my dogs was diagnosed with diabetes, they verified his prescription with my vet and shipped it to me in a box with dry ice.
- Pet clothes – You can also find adorable and unique pet supplies and clothes at reasonable prices on Etsy and Target.

Discover your pet’s ancestry
- Wisdom Panel – I DNA-tested my 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.
