National Pet Day will take place this year on April 11th and while we probably celebrate our pets everyday, this is the day that you can make it extra special for your pet.

According to a recent study conducted by retail giant zulily, millennials make up 35% of the pet owning population, delaying marriage and parenthood to spoil their furry friends like children instead. In fact, according to Consumer Affairs, the trend toward “humanizing” pets has led to a significant increase in pet spending. Last year, Americans spent $30 billion on pet products alone– more than they spent on alcohol, bottled water and coffee.
In an effort to cater to those pet owners who will spare no expense for their best friends, pet food manufacturers are making pet food that offers the same wellness benefits they want in their own food, such as grain-free, high protein, and “all natural” or organic ingredients. CANIDAE® Pet Food even launched its own CANIDAE® Farms where they are harvesting some of their own ingredients like milo, yellow field peas, greenhouse and field tomatoes, sage, and rosemary. Now CANIDAE is producing what is truly the first “farm to bowl” pet food straight from the farm with quality ingredients.
CANIDAE Farms has even created a product for weight management with the Canidae® Grain Free PURE Resolve® Weight Management Dog Dry Formula with Fresh Chicken uses simple recipes for sensitive dogs. Choosing a grain free limited ingredient diet may help pets who experience food sensitivities. Less ingredients could mean less chance of sensitive reactions. This limited ingredient recipe is made with 9 key ingredients that are easily recognizable, plus all the vitamins and minerals your dog needs.
