Expenditure on pets in the United Kingdom (UK) 2005-2018 This statistic shows total consumer spending on pets and related products in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2005 to 2018. In 2018, expenditure rose to approximately 4.94 billion British pounds. This is an extreme increase in consumer spending when compared to 2005, when only 2.54 billion British pounds were spent. Spending on veterinary and other pet services also increased in 2018, with figures showing 5.2 billion British pounds were spent. This is an increase of just over 3 billion British pounds when compared to 2005.

In contradiction to this, the total number of pets that live in the United Kingdom has actually reduced since 2009, with a drop of around 15 million.

One of the leading UK pet stores, Pets At Home has been around since 1991. This shop specializes in the sale of day to day pet products, as well as in store veterinary help. There are currently 434 Pets At Home stores in the United Kingdom.
