The UK Champions smaller breeds

Feb 16, 2024

As Pet owners become more aware of the importance of nutrition and well being and with advances in medicine the lifespan of our cats and dogs has in the past 4 decades increased in the UK. Dogs now live on average 12 years while cats live on average 15 years.

Changes in our preferred breed, means the great British public are favouring smaller dogs weighing less than 10kg, these types of dogs tend to live longer, in turn increasing the popularity of breed and age specific foods.

People living alone in th UK has increased in the last 20 years and younger generations are more likely to delay marriage and having children leaving a gap that dogs and cats fill, becoming a great source of companionship. Smaller breed dogs with their compact nature fit in to our busy lives and are easier to exercise increasing their appeal. Cats are independent and happy to amuse themselves.

As we are all more aware of “we are what we eat” we insist that our pets food meets the standard we demand in our own food and we want our pet foods and treats to be healthy and enjoyable.

Cats have big characters. They also have big energy requirements, fast metabolisms and burn energy at a fast rate. Just like the big cats of the wild, they are carnivores so they need high levels of meat to ensure maximum health.
