Preferences for pet nutrition also vary across different regions and countries, reflecting the diverse practices and cultural contexts of each pet owner. While some households choose to prepare homemade meals with meticulous care for their beloved animal companions, others lean towards commercially branded pet food options. Notably, in the Middle East and Africa region, pet owners often prioritize homemade meals such as fish over packaged foods as the preferred sustenance for their cherished pets.
