There is an increased consciousness among pet owners about the ingredients used instead of a decade ago. Contrary to the past, pet owners now see food as a source of good nutrition for their pets. The pet humanization trend has led to the increase in the health consciousness of pets and has also generated demand for natural supplements. Thus, consumers are looking for products that are locally grown, natural, and with digestive benefits. This has led to an increase in the sales of nutraceuticals and veterinary supplements to avoid high healthcare costs, thus, propelling the growth of the market studied.
