Pet Food Quality

How To


Check the ingredient list. High-quality pet foods will have a named animal protein source as the first ingredient, followed by whole grains or vegetables.

Look for a "best by" or "use by" date on the package. Choose foods that are as fresh as possible.

Consider the form of the food. Wet food may be more palatable and have a higher moisture content, which can be beneficial for animals with urinary tract issues.

Check for third-party certifications, such as AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) or FEDIAF (European Pet Food Industry Federation).

 Look for whole ingredients rather than highly processed ones. Whole ingredients are more nutrient-dense and are less likely to cause digestive issues.

Consider the size of the kibble. Make sure the size is appropriate for your pet's breed, age, and dental health.

 Research the company that manufactures the food. Look for information about their manufacturing processes and quality control measures.

 Check for recalls on the brand's website or by visiting the FDA's website.

Consult with your veterinarian or a professional in animal nutrition for recommendations on the best food for your specific pet.
