Korea's trade in pet care items has reached an all-time high this year ― through September ― according to the Korea Customs Service (KCS), Friday, amid a booming pet industry here backed by a growing number of pet-owning households.

The KCS said the nation's exports of pet care-related items from January to September amounted to $116 million, up 56.1 percent from the same period in 2021.
