Increasing Adoption of Dogs for Companionship to drive Therapeutic Dog Food market growth

Dogs are considered an apt companion for humans as they have a significant impact on their owner’s life. They promote an active lifestyle and can detect oncoming epileptic seizures much before the actual incidence. Pets help bring social, emotional, and cognitive development in children, in addition to helping adults in relieving stress and anxiety. Research studies have shown that dog owners are at 36% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and 11% lower risk of getting a heart attack. As per the American Pet Products Association's 2019–2020 survey, ~63.4 million households own at least one dog in the US. Also, as per the FEDIAF, the body representing European pet food industry, the popularity of dogs is growing in the region; the count of pet dogs in the EU rose from 63.7 million in 2016 to 66.4 million in 2017. According to the Animal Wellbeing (PAW) Report 2019 by the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA), ~50% of the UK population owns a pet, with an estimated population of 9.9 million pet dogs. 26% of adults in the country own a dog. Thus, a surging preference for dogs as a companion is fueling the therapeutic dog food market growth.

Growing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases Among Dogs Contribute Significantly to Therapeutic Dog Food Market Growth

Similar to humans, animals too suffer from chronic diseases. Arthritis, chronic kidney disease, cancer, hepatitis and other liver diseases, skin allergies, and diabetes are commonly detected chronic diseases in pets. Cancer is widespread in animals and affects dogs as well. According to the veterinary cancer society, the disease is a leading cause of death in 47% of dogs, especially dogs of age >10 years. Further, as per the Pet Cancer Facts and Figures, one in every four dogs develops cancer in its lifetime. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP), ~55.8% of dogs in the US were overweight or obese in 2018. The Arthritis Foundation says ~20% of all adult dogs suffer from arthritis. Such a growing prevalence of chronic medical conditions has become a major concern among dog owners, which underlines the demand for proper care. Thus, with the elevating prevalence of chronic medical conditions in dogs, companies are focusing on offering advanced therapeutic food products to help dog owners in maintaining the overall health of their pets.
