Pet owners, especially those who are vegetarian prefer feeding plant-based or vegan food to their pets. Moreover, pet owners often groom and feed pets with food that has adequate amount of nutrients in them. Consumers have become more conscious than before about their pet food and ingredients incorporated in them. Natural and organic options are becoming popular.
