Pet food is useful in ensuring good oral care in dogs with minimal tartar buildup on the animal’s teeth and by reducing plaque. In addition, this product type offers the crunch and chewing required for maintaining the overall health of animals. Dry food eliminates the need for freezing like that in case of canned food.
High moisture content in this product type helps ensure that the pets are hydrated and are also beneficial to the urinary tract. However, the high cost of the product, particularly meat-based protein canned food, may restrict its preference among consumers, thereby restraining the segment growth over the forecast period.
Pet snacks are usually preferred for improving intake nutrition and enhanced quality ingredients, whereas treats are used as the key product to induce positive behavior in pets. Snacks usually consist of baked products such as roasted grains and biscuits or dried fruits and vegetables.
