According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA) 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey, 50% (63.44 million) of U.S. households own a dog and 34% (42.7 million) of U.S. households own a cat. More than two-fifths (42%) of cat owners report that the internet is their top place to find information on pet health. While dog owners are most likely to select the vet as their first stop for information (47%), a significant portion (35%) view the internet as their top information destination.
