Industrial Laboratories is able to provide you with a number of options for your pet food products. The most common requirement for pet foods is a Guaranteed Analysis. IL can provide you with this analysis and more.
There are two levels of regulation required for Pet Foods. Federal regulations require standards for all animal feeds. These regulations are enforced by the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) and require the following: proper identification of product, net quantity statement, the manufacturer’s address, and a listing of ingredients.
Various states also have their own regulations. Many states use the regulations established by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). These require that pet food products have the product name, a guaranteed analysis, a nutritional adequacy statement, feeding directions, and calorie statements. For more information regarding these regulations you can visit the FDA website by clicking here or by visiting the AAFCO website by clicking here.
