Finding Success for Your Star Pet Model

Animals are gorgeous, loving, entertaining and a whole lot of fun to be around. That’s probably why, according to the latest estimated figures from the PFMA (Pet Food Manufacturers' Association), the UK's pet population is a whopping 12 million! 44% of households have pets with around 51 million pets owned. Out of that, 9 million dogs are pets whilst cats total to 8 million. Many pets are also emotional support animals or specially trained service animals so they also help their owners who may suffer health or wellbeing problems.
