How much do you love your pet?

That’s the question Honest Paws, a pet CBD brand, asked Americans in a survey this summer. 

Honest Paws surveyed 1,014 Americans to find out how they view their pets and the lengths they would go to to protect or keep their companions.

After initially learning that 96 percent of those surveyed consider their pets to be members of their family, the rest of the results are in line with this belief.

Seventy-four percent of Americans would feed their pets before themselves if put in the situation, and 67 percent would rather have their pet than internet access, whereas 70 percent would give up their smartphones.

Moving and where people live is also largely determined by their pets, with 86 percent gladly willing to cover moving costs if they needed to relocate for an area or home that allowed pets.

When it comes to a pet’s health, most Americans would go out of their way to get them the treatment necessary. Of those surveyed, 83 percent said they would take a second job in order to afford their pet’s health care needs.

“​​We know that American pet owners are willing to go to the ends of the earth for their pets,” Honest Paws said.
