Birmingham, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2015 -- According to Euromonitor data, the total of UK spending on pet care is set to reach a level of $7.16bn this year - a record high. This figure is a 3% increase compared to last year and shows a growth of 25% since 2010. This suggests that more money is being spent on pets than ever before, with people increasingly perceiving them as a worthwhile investment.
A key reason for the increase in pet spending is the desire of owners for their animals to have a high quality of life, and to have heightened levels of interaction with the world around them. Many people are taking to treating their pets as they would treat themselves – especially with toys, as this can aid interaction between people and their animals. Another important area of spending is on pampering. This includes popular purchases such as brushes and combs, often used – both to improve the pets appearance and to enhance the relationship between owner and animal.
