A new study discovered some surprising news about how we are feeding our pets…a significant majority of worldwide pet owners give their pets some real food each day.

The study—published by researchers from University of Guelph Ontario Veterinary College in Canada, with ties to Trouw Nutrition, Royal Canin and Petcurean—discovered through pet owner surveys something that surprised them (and probably concerned the pet food industry manufacturers). After surveying “3673 English-speaking dog and cat owners in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the USA” they learned that…

Only 13% dogs and 32% cats were fed conventional foods (kibble or can) exclusively.

Put another way, the study discovered that…

87% of dogs and 68% of cats are provided some real food in their diet.
