Oxbow Animal Health's volume of petfood distribution has increased greatly since the company was formed, according to a report by KHAS-TV .
The company was formed in Murdock, Nebraska, USA, to produce horse feed for a local store. As the company grew, Oxbow switched to production of rabbit and guinea pig products, and it now distributes them worldwide. The company's expanded product line includes: food, supplements, accessories and bedding. Last year, the company saw a growth of 16% and expects to see similar results again this year.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
