|Pet Food Tonnage|
More than 7.8 million tons of cat and dog food were sold in the United States in 2012.
Each year the pet food industry purchases millions of tons of meat, poultry, seafood, grains and other agricultural inputs to produce highly nutritious food products for cats and dogs. In addition to keeping America's cats and dogs well nourished, pet food companies are an important part of the U.S. agricultural sector.
