With International Dog Day coming up tomorrow on August 26th, ethical pet food brand on a mission to end factory farming, Frontier Pets, have conducted a survey to get a better understanding of how much we really know about what we are buying for our precious pooches.
The survey showed that 55% of consumers aged 25-34 were unaware that their choice in food for their dog was a direct contributor to the biggest form of animal cruelty world wide, factory farming. But interestingly, over 75% participants aged 25-34 felt it was important to feed their dogs organic and free ranged pet food.
These statistics highlight that ethics and sustainability are at front of mind for modern dog owners, however there is a lack of education and transparency around choosing the right brand.
We wanted to share with you 5 Australian, ethical pet brands in order to make it easier to choose the right pet related brands for your furry friends.
