Dog food refers to specifically formulated food intended for dog consumption. It is generally prepared from cereals, meat and its byproducts, grains, legumes, poultry and seafood. It contains essential nutrients that are required for the overall health development of dogs, such as protein, carbohydrates, minerals, magnesium, calcium and antioxidants. Besides this, its consumption helps in preventing infections and allergies that are fatal for dogs. The demand for dog food is increasing across the region due to the availability of dog food in dry and wet forms with a wide range of diversified flavors and vegetarian dog food options.        

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
