For instance, dehydrated and canned dog and cat food has gained popularity in U.S. Furthermore, demand for organic and natural pet food has increased recently owing to rising consciousness regarding pet health among pet parents. Manufacturers are launching chemical free products to meet requirement of pet's nutritional intake. For instance, Natural Pet MaxMeat, Air Dried Dry Dog Food by MaxMeat is a high protein meal pack.

Easy and prompt availability of a wide range of innovative, imported, and convenient products such as trendy pet accessories, hygiene products in form of sprays, imported pet snacks, and others are also contributing to market expansion.
