ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sales of pet products are benefiting from more people giving Christmas gifts to their dogs and cats.
Suburban St. Louis resident Justine Ulrich says she has a new toy for her dog Beau and treats for her cats. And she's not stopping there: Beau also will receive a day at a doggie day camp.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/RDPu0s) reports that consumers are expected to spend $52.9 billion on their pets this year, including on holiday gifts. That's up 4% from last year.
A survey done by the American Pet Products Association found 53% of dogs and 38% of cats will receive holiday gifts.
