The number of pets in Chinese urban centres is growing. This is according to the China Pet Industry White Paper 2020, to which the latest issue of the sector newsletter Pet Industry News refers.

It was reported in the White Paper that in 2020, over 100 mio pets were living in China's cities. This signified an increase of 1.7 per cent compared with the previous year. Dogs continue to be the most popular pets, followed by cats. Compared with 2019, however, the proportion of dogs has declined from 54.4 per cent to 51 per cent. By contrast, the proportion of cats has risen from 43.1 per cent to 46 per cent.

The populations of small animals and cage birds continue to grow, while the proportion of ornamental fish and reptiles declined last year in relation to the overall pet population in China.
