Top pet food trends that explain why there is so much variety of pet treats in the Market
Making pet food be like human food. For us pet parent our dogs and cats are families, so we look for the best options to fit their palate and nutritional needs. While choosing for the best pet food, we want the products and treats to be wholesome and safe, same as we do with the carefully selected food we feed our human family.
That is why now many pet food companies are offering diverse options that are organic, grain free, natural, made with premium ingredients and low carb. Same as for human food we pet parents want transparency on the ingredients used on the pet food and treats we feed our fur babies. We look for foods that do not have chemicals, additives and or preservatives. That contain vitamins and provide high protein content. And avoid grains or soy as many dogs and cats are allergic to those ingredients.
Raw Food – Hot topic for many. The raw diet is a hot topic for many veterinarians as fresh raw food could hold bacteria if not handled correctly. Many pet owners are embracing this idea of feeding raw food to their pets. Mimicking what cats and dogs were used to do in the wild hunting for their food and eating it raw. We are still on the fence with this, but we respect decisions other pet owners make. Dogs and cats are Foodies too. Pet food and treats now are allergy free. You can find gluten free, grain free, sugar-free options and pet probiotics also.
