Americans love their pets. 68% of American households have at least one pet, and spending on our furry loved ones exceeds $72 billion per year. Employers have taken notice of the buzz and are progressively adding pet care benefits to their roster. Employees can keep their pets happy and healthy with discounts on veterinary services, boarding, dog walking, and prescriptions. And since the comfort of a pet positively impacts mental wellness, employees will also be happier, healthier, and more productive at work.
