9 out of 10 French people pay attention to what their dogs and cats eat, but misunderstandings persist

Illustration : "9 Français sur 10 font attention à ce que mangent leurs chiens et chats, mais des méconnaissances persistent"

A recent study commissioned by Purina, a famous petfood brand, revealed that the vast majority of French people were attentive to the contents of the bowl of their dogs and cats. It also tells us that a quarter of those surveyed admitted to knowing nothing about pet food.”

Purina had launched, almost 2 years ago, the platform #YAQuoiDansSaGamelle, with the aim of allowing owners of dogs and cats to fill up on information about what their 4-legged friends should eat. Concretely, it offers about fifty questions / answers from experts around the composition of food, needs and environmental issues related to pet food.”

It is because the petfood brand of reference had already perceived a lack of information with the public. A finding that has only been confirmed at the end of a study whose results were recently unveiled by Purina. Conducted by Oxoda between October 30 and November 6, 2019, it consisted of interviewing 1005 French owners of dogs and / or cats about their knowledge of the diet of the latter.”

While 91% said they pay attention to what their companions eat, a quarter admitted that they did not know their nutritional needs precisely. Nevertheless, 86% said they adapt meals to their pet’s profile: age, activity, weight, breed…

Nearly 2 thirds (64%) say they systematically read the composition of the food products they buy for their dogs and cats. The same percentage say they want more natural, organic and additive-free food for their animals and almost half are primarily looking for products made in France.”

Still up to 64%, the French confide to give the remains of their meal to their animal. A practice that is, of course, strongly discouraged.”

Finally, on the side of the main sources of food information to which respondents say they refer, these place the veterinarian in the lead (61%), followed by the packaging of products (37%) and the Internet (25%).”
