Snacking in America is on the rise and humans aren’t the only ones who are craving flavorful treats. Dogs and cats are snacking more, and sales of pet treats have outpaced the growth of dog and cat food over the last five years, according to recent Mintel data.

“While dog and cat food dominate the category, the continued growth of treats is a clear reflection of the increasingly prevalent view among pet owners that pets are members of the family and deserve a bit of pampering,” said John Owen, senior food and drink analyst at Mintel.
