According to the research, 86 percent of current pet parents surveyed said owning pets helps them stick to a routine, better manage their time, and more efficiently multitask. But even if you don't think your pet has directly helped you, your coworkers' knowledge that you have a pet may actually be beneficial for your career. In fact, 80 percent of people surveyed said they "feel more connected to colleagues who are pet owners," and 79 percent of those surveyed believe that fellow co-workers who have pets are "hard workers."

Owning a lovable, cuddly pet can unquestionably make one's home life better — and apparently, it can affect pet owners' professional lives as well.

"We cannot make a conclusion currently whether some in the age group,
especially those born between 1985 and 1989, are just postponing
marriage or have given up on marriage. We'll try to find the answer
through the follow-ups," said Shen Ke, associate professor from the
School of Social Development and Public Policy of Fudan University and
one of the research leaders.
“特定年龄段、越发是 1九八五 至 1九捌六年间出生的人，他们是希图延迟结婚，仍旧曾经抛弃了成婚的激情，对此大家还不能敲定。我们将在持续调查中间试验着去追寻答案。”本次侦察首领之一、浙大大学社会提高与公共政策高校的副教师沈可商讨。
“At Banfield Pet Hospital, we’ve long recognized the special bond between people and their pets, as well as the positive impact pets have on our society,” Brian Garish, president of Banfield Pet Hospital, said in a statement on Banfield's website. “From the pet ownership lessons we learned as children, to the ways our four-legged friends currently help us evolve, connect with others, and stay grounded, our latest research supports the notion we’ve had all along – that there may be a link between pets and their ability to help shape us as people.”

families for the past eight years.

More students in China are choosing veterinary medicine as a career thanks to rising salaries and the growing demand for animal care, according to industry sources.
Xiong said some veterinary medicine graduates don't end up providing direct medical services, instead opting for jobs as civil servants or veterinary medicine researchers, aggravating the country's shortage of veterinarians.
Cohabitation contributes to the fact that people are getting married
late, according to the survey report.
Animals share more than 90 percent of the same diseases with people. They also have diabetes, heart disease and liver failure, he said. But Zhao said medical expenses for pets－which are subject to less regulation－can be double those for people.

So, how exactly does pet ownership cause career success? Well, according to Banfield's research, executives reported that their pet helped teach them lessons like responsibility, creativity, empathy, discipline, and organization, which have all been invaluable in the business world.
A small pet hospital, which has fewer than 10 employees, can make more than 10 million yuan a year, he said. A pet hospital affiliated with our university receives at least 40 pets a day.
The survey also found 40 percent of those responding cohabitated before
marriage, which used to be taboo in China, a country where people hold
traditionally conservative attitudes toward sex.
Among the C-suite executives (CEOs, etc.) surveyed, 93 percent grew with a pet in their home, with 78 percent claiming that growing up with a pet helped cause their career success as an adult. Interestingly, 83 percent of C-suite executives who participated said they grew up with a dog, 59 percent of them said they grew up with a cat, and 37 percent of them said they grew up with another kind of pet. (You're correct — these numbers do not add up. It would seem that many of the people interviewed grew up with multiple kinds of pets.)
Xiong said Nanjing, with 8 million people, had almost no pet hospitals before 2006, but now it has more than 100. He estimated the pet care market in China will keep increasing by 30 to 35 percent yearly.
More people born between 1980 and 1989 are remaining single.
Few students, especially female students, wanted to become vets in the past due to a heavy workload, low salary and bad working environment. But we have had good applicants in the past two years, and more than 60 percent of them are female.
But what about people who grew up pet-less, but have adopted pets as adults? Luckily for those, the survey showed that current pet ownership can also help with professional success.
The number of pets in China has increased by 12 percent every year for 10 years, Beijing Youth Daily reported in March. China has become the world's third-largest pet market, just behind the United States and Japan, with the sales of supplies for dogs and cats reaching 172 billion yuan in 2016.

Xin Wen contributed to this story.
Compared with doctors for people, veterinarians need to treat different kinds of animals and a wide variety of diseases, Xiong said. To some extent, they must have more professional knowledge and need more practice.
The demand for practitioners shows no signs of slowing.
He said that the average starting salary for veterinary graduates is 4,000 yuan a month, and in three years their earnings can surpass 10,000 yuan, higher than the salaries of many other majors.
