Pet Foods

Published 2009

Choosing the right pet food may be something a pet owner gives only a thought at the grocery store or it may be a decision that’s extensively researched. Either way, when selecting a food that is right for a particular companion animal, read the pet food label before buying. The label items can be confusing, but when you know what to look for, selecting the right pet food becomes much easier.

In order to evaluate the label information, look at the label in two parts: the principle display panel (front of the label) and the information panel (immediately to the right of the principal display panel). Each part is required to contain specific information and may include extra consumer information.
