It’s National Dog Month and a new report reveals some stats about our beloved pups. JustAnswer.com, an online service that connects people with experts, including veterinarians, for real-time help and answers to questions, analyzed more than 200-thousand online vet and pet expert conversations with dog owners over the last year.
These are some of the top doggy data findings:
- Pitbulls are the most popular dog breed in the U.S., followed by Chihuahuas and Labrador retrievers.
- Bella is the most popular dog name, with Luna and Max coming in second and third.
- JustAnswer vet consultations are often from pet owners worried about something their dog ingested, with chocolate being the most common concern. Poison, medication, grapes, raisins, bottles, chicken, cups, cookies and gum are also commonly eaten by dogs, leading their owners to call for help.
- It turns out, a lot of dogs accidentally eat THC edibles. Texas is the number one state for questions about this, followed by California, New York, Florida and Michigan.
