A soft sales environment in the pet food market does not seem to be deterring investors. In fact, while sales growth has lost steam, many smell opportunity. In 2013-2014, Mars Petcare bought most of Procter & Gamble's pet operations, Central Garden & Pet received an unsolicited offer for its pet business, and several Made in the USA treat brands have been acquired on the heels of concerns about China-made products. Despite increased competition in natural pet products, investors are eagerly awaiting an IPO from Blue Buffalo. And the latest news of weak sales at PetSmart has led activist investors to pressure PetSmart to review its strategic options.
