Did this study take into account that cats are masters at hiding illness? Could people spend less on vet care because they don't realize that their cat is sick? Did they control for owner personality and income?

I would also point out that vets tend to know more about dogs than cats, and cats are studied less often. We generally know more about dogs than cats.

I guess this worries me a bit. I currently have a foster dog who I'm training, and I don't want him to be less loved just because I gave him basic training and not his forever family.
