ABSTRACT
The article offers a look at the pet industry in China. For decades China had been a pet-hostile society however, change has been so dramatic in recent years that it is no longer a no-pet zone. At least 10 million dogs now are kept in homes, and cats are almost equally plentiful. Pets are also becoming a profit center. A variety of animal-oriented occupations have popped up, including trainers, stylists, mental therapists and crematoriums. The overall pet economy, with an estimated value of $2 billion, is projected to be worth $5 billion by 2010.
