UNION SQUARE, Manhattan — Last year, U.S. pet owners spent nearly $33 billion dollars to feed their loved ones.
Now, “Just Food for Dogs” is disrupting the market with its fresh approach.
The company just opened a 1,500-square foot kitchen in Union Square where they’ll be making 2,000 pounds of fresh food for pets everyday!
The idea is that it’s the same food humans eat.
Chief medical officer, Dr. Oscar Chavez, explains that it’s not gourmet — it’s just food that’s healthier.
“It’s just like us. We know that healthier food is going to keep us healthy, now scientific research is backing that up for our pets,” he said.
So what can owners expect when their pooh dives into “Just Food for Dogs?”
Usually, pet owners report a personality change, many saying they got their puppy back.
There are many varieties of food, which you can buy fresh or frozen, which include sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, cauliflower and beef — all mixed on site.
The big question: Is it affordable? It’s estimated that if you have a 70-pound dog, you’ll average at about $5 a day.
But this is New York and lots of people have smaller dogs, so it’ll cost you just as much as premium kibble.
