about this item

Succinct, highly readable and thought provoking, this important new text is designed to raise awareness of the potential economic impact of companion animals in the UK. It discusses the potential benefits and costs of companion animals to the economy and highlights the need for this matter to be thoroughly researched, given the potential scale of impact that companion animals have, and the potential costs of ignoring this matter. The book includes:

- case studies to illustrate the savings to the NHS that might be associated with companion animal ownership;
- links to up-to-date tables and content that might form templates for use in other countries; and
- highly readable information written by expert authors and key opinion leaders in the field.

Inspired by the seminal Council for Science and Society (CSS) Report, Companion Animals in Society (1988), this work updates and extends its evaluation of the economic impact of companion animals on society and lays a benchmark for future development. This pivotal new book is important for policy makers at national and international levels and all those involved in animal welfare.
