If you had a chance to pamper your pet, would you opt for a private chef, deep-muscle massage, custom wardrobe, or psychic readings? According to Forbes, a significant percentage of wealthy pet owners splurge on special accommodations that most of us can’t imagine. The Pet Experts at Naperville Animal Hospital are equally fascinated when it comes to rich and famous pets, and we hope that our favorites inspire some extra indulgences we’re sure your pet deserves.
Of the affluent, over half make advanced arrangements for their pets in case of death. Over 25% create a trust for their pet (or pets), with the average being $526,000. Of these trusts, 90% stipulate that only after their pet passes away will any surviving family members receive the inheritance.

From butt sniffing to leg humping, it’s safe to say they’re pretty comfortable with their animal selves, but there are some behaviors that have most pet owners stumped – like ear licking. So, why do dogs lick ears, and is it normal?
