(Stamford, CT) – In observance of Healthy Aging Month, the American Pet Products Association (APPA) expresses the importance of healthy aging for our pets too, not just ourselves. According to APPA’s 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey, over 50 percent of dog and cat owners feel their pet is like a family member and close to 9 million dogs and 4.7 million cats even have health insurance. There is no question that today’s pet owners want the best for their pets and September is a good reminder to make health a priority at any stage of life.  Below is a list of products manufactured by APPA members that will help pets live their best life at any age.
