PetFlow, an online petfood delivery service, celebrated a major milestone in its order quantities, receiving nearly 1,000 petfood orders per day, the company reported.
The amount of new orders equate to a grand total of just about 200,000 pounds of petfood per day, the company says. PetFlow says this amount of petfood is nearly 60 beluga whales, 40 hippopotamuses, or 1,333 Great Danes worth.
