On the other hand, ready-to-eat pet foods and snacks have long raised concerns about potential chemical and preservative content.
Finding a green, safer solution for the environment as well as animal health is becoming the development orientation of modern young companies, typically Dogsee.

According to a report by the cultural research organization Cassandra, up to 50% of young people say they consider dogs and cats as their own children and nearly 20% of young people’s income is spent on pets.
