Half claim they say 'hello' to their dog or cat before anyone else when they get

Only 12 percent said they would split up with their partner if their pet didn't take to her. The study, carried out by an animal health organization, found that 40 percent of the 1,094 pet owners surveyed would risk their own life to save their animal if it were in danger.
Half insisted they would spare no expense on treatment if their pet was ill - although a similar number forget to keep their vaccines up to date.
The study found 10 percent say they would save money by stopping smoking, or by cutting down, rather than have to reduce the amount spent on their pet.
