Pet Food Availability vs. Pet Food Information

Hubbard Life nutritionists offer information through blog, Facebook and Twitter

Have you ever stopped to think why pet food is available almost everywhere? The following statistics from the American Pet Products Association 2011-2012 National Pet Owners Survey gives us insight into this question.


  • There are approximately 78.2 million owned dogs in the United States
  • Thirty-nine percent of U.S. households own at least one dog
  • On average, owners have almost two dogs (1.69 percent)
  • The proportion of male to female dogs is even
  • Twenty-one percent of owned dogs were adopted from an animal shelter
  • Seventy-eight percent of owned dogs are spayed or neutered


  • There are approximately 86.4 million owned cats in the United States
  • Thirty-three percent of U.S. households own at least one cat
  • On average, owners have two cats (2.2)
  • More female cats are owned than male cats (80 percent vs. 65 percent respectively)
  • Twenty-one percent of owned cats were adopted from an animal shelter
  • Eighty-eight percent of owned cats are spayed or neutered

At Hubbard Life we offer pet owners more than a product. We offer them information on pet management, nutrition and care. We believe that pet owners want to know as much about their pet’s diet as they do about their own diets.

That is why Hubbard Life offers a variety of easy to use social medias to obtain professional information regarding your pet’s nutrition. Visit our website at and sign up to receive our weekly blogs right to your email inbox. You can ask questions directly to Hubbard Life nutritionists from our website or on our Facebook or Twitter pages. Post or tweet your questions anytime.

You can’t get this type of help and expertise at the majority of places that sell pet food. But you can get it at your local Hubbard Life dealer.
