Pet parents are going to the dogs.
Nearly half of dog owners spend $50 a month on their animals, compared to fewer than 40% of cat owners.
That's according to a survey from CouponCabin.com.
Nearly a quarter of pet owners fess up to holding or attending a birthday celebration for an animal.
That number is also higher for dog owners than cat owners.
