Overview
   Pet food is plant or animal material intended for consumption by pets.
   Typically sold in pet stores and supermarkets, it is usually specific to the
   type of animal, such as dog food or cat food.
   Most meat used for non-human animals is a by-product of the human food
   industry, and is not regarded as "human grade.
   Four companies - Procter & Gamble, Nestlé, Mars, and Colgate-Palmolive -
   are thought to control 80 percent of the world's pet-food market, which in
   2007 amounted to US$ 45.12 billion for cats and dogs alone.
   Cat and dog food sales exceeded £1.4 billion in the United Kingdom and
   US$14.3 billion in the United States in 2005.
   In 2006 the value of the UK pet food market rose to just over £1.6 billion.
   The leading exporters of pet food for 2004 were France ($993 million),
   United States ($786 million) and the Netherlands ($511 million).
   While the leading importers were Japan ($718 million), Germany ($617
   million) and the UK ($563 million).
