Facts and stats about your pet's diet

There are many types of diets for cats and dogs. Dietary needs can differ from pet to pet, depending on whether your cat or dog is highly active or more sedentary, or if your pet is young, middle-aged, or a senior. Here are some surprising facts about cat and dog diets:

  1. 8 out of 10 shoppers say they would try food formula specifically designed for their pure breed dog.
  2. Feeding your dog a 6.7 oz. Rawhide Bone is the equivalent of a human eating 10 donuts.
  3. Feeding your cat a 2 oz. can of tuna is the equivalent of a human eating 6 donuts.
  4. 43% of dog and cat owners buy wet pet food on a weekly basis.
  5. Only 2 out of 10 dog owners stock up on dry pet food less than once a month.
  6. A cat on a dry food diet consumes approximately half the amount of water compared to a cat on a canned wet food diet.
  7. 56% of dogs and 60% of cats are classified as clinically overweight or obese.
