lthough Belgium was home
to only the sixth largest
population of small mammal
pets in 2018, the nation was home
to the highest population of those
pets per capita in Europe and Turkey.
Analysts with the European Pet Food
Federation (FEDIAF) estimated the
European population of small mammal
pets, such as rabbits and gerbils, and
published that data in the report
"FEDIAF Facts & Figures 2018." The
report presented the European populations of pet dogs, cats and other pets
along with other data on EU member
and other European pet food markets,
along with Turkey.

Small mammals per capita
However, some European nations
with smaller human populations had
higher per capita numbers of small
mammals than larger countries.
■ Belgium - 0.112 small mammals per
person
■ Netherlands - 0.069 small
mammals per person
■ Germany - 0.066 small mammals
per person
■ Switzerland - 0.057 small mammals
per person
■ France - 0.052 small mammals per
person

Industry September 2019

■ Russia - 0.042 small mammals per
person
■ Hungary - 0.040 small mammals
per person
■ Greece - 0.036 small mammals per
person
■ Italy - 0.031 small mammals per
person
■ United Kingdom - 0.030 small
mammals per person
The per capita population of cats
in each nation was estimated by
dividing the cat population from the
FEDIAF report by the approximate
human population of each country
in 2018. Human population data was
taken from Worldometer.info, which
elaborated the numbers using United
Nations Department of Economic
and Social Affairs Population Division figures.
