Pet food sales seeing significant growth
10/18/2018 8:42am

ID 69112830 Monika Wisniewska Dreamstime.com Pet food sales is booming because we care about their health and wellness Jim Hanzo October 18, 2018 Categories: State Local News functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowfunctione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowPet food sales has seen remarkable market growth, mainly because of interest in our family pets health and wellness. In some cases pet owners care more about the health of their furry family members than their own health. Dr. Dan Frisard with Acadian Veterinary Hospital in Metairie agrees, and explains why the sudden growth in pet food sales make it a booming business. The cutting edge of the pet food industry is actually prescription foods that veterinarians sell for certain disease state, like allergies, and kidney problems, Frisard said. He says a big portion of that is related to keeping your pets weight down. Probably over 80 percent of pet owners have overweight cats and dogs, Frisard noted. Pet food sales topped 26 billion dollars, jumping almost 6 percent last year according to recent estimates by Packaged Facts. The research firm forecasts the industry to continue to grow annually through 2022. Dr. Frisard says those 50 cent cheap cans of dog food is not recommended when it comes to your pets health. He says with the healthy pet foods that are high in fiber, you pay significantly more in price.But in the long run, youre looking at prolonging a pets life span, youre looking at removing weight without starving your pet, so in the long run its well worth the price, said Dr. Frisard.
