It’s safe to say that the internet has revolutionized nearly every aspect of modern day life, from the way people to work, to the way people buy groceries, and even the way people date. Take for example the fact that the overwhelming majority of Americans — 91% — engage in social media on daily basis in order to connect with family, friends, professional connections, and even to catch up on the news.
The use of the internet has completely changed — or leveled — the playing field in terms of dating, with roughly 57% of the world’s total population having used a dating sight. As such, it should come as no surprise that pet owners are taking advantage of the accessibility and convenience of the internet in terms of cat and dog dating.

Let’s take a look at frequent health conditions and pet owner tips to help you stay on the ball.
