Ever wonder how people determine the population of dogs and cats in your city?
In the past, it required some math, using a formula provided by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). See the formulas section here to see how these formulas are calculated.
But if you know your city’s overall population, you can now plug in that number to get an idea of the dog, cat, bird, and horse population of your city and the number of households with these animals.
