Health Care Is Going To The Dogs

I came across this interesting piece of trivia today at DemoMemo.  Don't worry, I am not linking you to a Democratic Party site.   This is a blog that is all about demographic trends and data.

The average household spends more on Veterinary Services than it does on Physician's Services.  Vet services ranks 51st in the average household budget.  Docs rank 54th.

Beyond the fact that households are spending more out of their pockets on their pet's vet services than on their own doctor visits, it is interesting to see the rank in this spending.  53 items are higher on the average household's budget list than physician services.

This clearly shows that President Obama tackled the wrong type of health care reform.  He should have been focused on the dog and cat constituencies.
