12. Pet Food Tester
Pet food testers taste the food we give to our pets and evaluate the nutritional value and deliciousness of the food. Not only do they taste the foods, but they write reports and brainstorm new ideas for making these treats nutritional and healthier for our pets. A pet food taster is paid to sample the new formulas before they hit the public markets, ensuring they are good enough for the rest of the animals. The average salary for a pet food tester is around $40,000.
