However, it is not just big-name brands, such as Pedigree, Cesar and Whiskas under the Mars Petcare banner, which generate such revenues; private label dry dog food accounts for a 14.2 percent share of all dry dog food sales in 2018. Almost a quarter of all pet food is sold through pet specialty chains in the United States.
