High pet food prices might fall as inflation slows

Xavier Roger


Pandemic-fueled inflation might be gradually cooling, but you’d be hard-pressed to convince the millions of U.S. pet owners. 

Americans paid 15% more for pet food in February than they did a year ago, according to the consumer price index. That’s more than 5 percentage points higher than what we paid for our groceries and double the rate for everything else we bought

The future, though, may be less daunting for pet owners. More on that later. 

“The prices have risen incredibly since the pandemic. It’s ridiculous,” said Stefan Zimmers of Arlington, Virginia. “The problem is you love your pet, so you’re going buy it.”
