The Business Of Pets: Niche Business In Living Wills For Your Dog Or Cat

Living Wills are recommended for all individuals over the age of 65, or those who are younger who are living with a serious medical condition. The principle behind these Living Wills is that the person's wishes with regards to medical care are outlined and documented so that others know what they want from their medical care at a time when they may be unable to speak for themselves and make their own decisions. Since our beloved pets can never speak for themselves, a company called Pet Living Wills has decided to capture this niche with a unique business.
