The study – published by researchers from University of Guelph Ontario Veterinary College in Canada – discovered through pet owner surveys something that surprised them. After surveying “3673 English-speaking dog and cat owners in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the USA” they learned that…
Only “13% dogs and 32% cats were fed conventional foods (kibble or can) exclusively“.
Put another way, the study discovered that…
87% of dogs and 68% of cats are provided some real food in their diet.
This study compared their results with previous research into pet owner feeding practices. In 2008, research showed that 65% of dog owners surveyed exclusively fed a kibble or canned diet to their dogs. Ten years later, only 13% of dog owners exclusively fed their dog a kibble or canned pet food. In 2008, 85% of cat owners surveyed exclusively fed a kibble or canned diet to their cats. Ten years later that percentage dropped to 32% of cat owners exclusively fed a kibble or canned diet.
