Pet food is an essential item if you own a pet in Maplestory.
Your pet has a fullness level, which describes how fed it is.
To keep your pet going, you need to feed it pet food to increase its fullness level.
You get pet food in Maplestory by purchasing it for 30 mesos from the NPC, Doofus, who is located at Henesys Market in Henesys. You can also buy pet food in Leafre, Orbis, Mu Lung, and Ludibrium.
Once your pet reaches 50 fullness, it will start to show you that it needs food soon through gestures like facial expressions and stance.
Don’t worry, even if your pet reaches 0 fullness, you can simply summon it again and feed it. You just can’t use your pet as long as it has 0 fullness.
The maximum fullness of pets is 100. Trying to feed them above this level of fullness will decrease its closeness.
Feeding your pet when it’s hungry will increase its closeness.
