Throughout Latin America both pet ownership and pet food sales have been changing. People continue moving to cities, which makes owning large dogs more difficult and increases demand for cats and small dogs. During their presentation at Foro Mascotas 2023 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico on June 1 and 2, Alberto Trueba of Euromonitor International and Luis Montoya of Reading Bakery Systems shared data about pet ownership and retail sales for several Latin American nations collected by Euromonitor.
