More Americans than ever are adopting pets, with ownership rates rising fastest among never-married, widowed, separated and divorced people, according to data from the AVMA's newest Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook. "Unfortunately, despite these positive trends, people aren't bringing their pets into the veterinarian as often as they should," said AVMA President Dr. Douglas Aspros. One-quarter of pet owners didn't take their animals in for medical care in 2011, up 14.3% from 2006.
