Dogs, cats, birds, and exotics provide emotional support, unconditional love and steady companionship to their owners. Pet owners, in return, love their pets like family and want to feed them high-quality products. They also like to discover new ways to interact with their pets. Providing treats for meeting performance goals or just being a ‘good boy’ is another way that humans interact with their pets. Trends in pet food treats mirror trends in human snacks and non-meal indulgences. Consumers want healthy, natural alternatives for themselves, their families and their pets. The FDA does not have a legal definition of natural, although they are presently in the process of defining this term. Natural to most consumers means free from synthetically-produced preservatives or chemical names and containing simple and fewer ingredients with minimal processing.
