Global Wet Pet Food Market 2017-2021

About Wet Pet Food

Wet pet foods have significantly higher moisture content than dry pet foods because they contain about 70-85% water mixed with dry ingredients. The transportation and shipping of wet pet foods are more expensive than dry pet foods. Hence, wet pet foods are priced higher than dry pet foods. As wet pet foods have more protein and fat contents that dry pet foods, pets often perceive wet pet food to be tastier than dry pet foods. Also, most of the wet pet foods do not contain any preservatives, and so, are meant for quick consumption.
