The pet food business in India is close to Rs 350 crore while other services such as pet vacation facility, pet psychology to handling pet behaviour, pet grooming, styling and pet insurance among others are already generating revenues of Rs 150 crore or more. The pet population in the country growing at an encouraging 26% year-on-year rate.
Also with the recent pandemic and the lockdown the pet ownership all around the wold has gone up. A total of 3.2 million households in the United Kingdom have acquired a pet since the start of the pandemic. According to different pet shop owners in the Mumbai city there has been an increase of 50% pet purchase in the lockdown period itself. Breeders expected that the demands of pet will go down, but surprisingly it went up. Now, there are not enough puppies to sell.
Pets have provided a great source of comfort during these testing times and have rescued us from the uncertainty looming around. They have also helped foster a deeper connection between family members, pushed us to go out on a walk for some fresh air, put a smile on our faces by interrupting Zoom calls and prepare for the big fight against COVID.
But unfortunately, in India the pet business is also a con business. And the prime reason for the same is the lack of knowledge the pet store owner has. Things are changing now but the pace is really slow and it will take time particularly in India for the pet business to be an organized business and these con practises to stop.
But, then there is Mr Sameer Gudhate from Mumbai who is on a mission to impart knowledge to pet parents across India. He believes that knowledge is the key to success. Whether it is from high school, college, a trade school, job experience or even from a real life experience, all are stepping stones to developing a well-rounded understanding of the real world.
So taking this into account he has started Petopedia -The Worlds First Daily Whatsapp Pet Information Service. Petopedia is a Digital Magazine platform which provides…
▶ Pet Profiles

The best part is that great and absolutely useful information is shared daily precisely at 130 pm without fail to the subscribers which today count to more than 12000 spread across the entire nation.
