Dogs animal-type segment accounted for the largest market share in 2021 due to increased animal healthcare spending, specifically in the developed regions.

According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), by 2020, 56% of American families would possess pets, with 44% owning dogs, 25% owning cats, and 12% owning other pets. A growing number of families in the United States have decided to add a dog or two to their family. According to the American Pet Products Association’s 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey, there are now 89.7 million dogs in the United States (Insurance Information Institute). As a result, dogs have become popular as pets in American homes, with 63.4 million households owning a dog in 2020. (American Pet Products Association, 2020). As a result, the category and market are fueled by the growing popularity of pet dogs around the world.

Increased adiposity can also have a negative impact on pulmonary function, create metabolic disturbances such as insulin resistance, and have a negative impact on renal function and health. Additionally, dogs fed ad libitum are more likely to be overweight, resulting in a shorter lifespan. As a result, there is now a lot of evidence accessible to show the negative health impacts that can occur when companion dogs become overweight.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition announced in April 2022 that their Prescription Diet pet food line would be relaunched, with new formulations, packaging redesigns, and more veterinary outreach.

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) reports that an average US family adopts more pet dogs than other animals, indicating that pet ownership is on the rise in the United States. The pet expenditure sector in the United States is predicted to grow in the coming years. Thus, the region is expected to hold the significant share in the market.
