What Does Made in the USA Mean for Pet Food?
Brookhaven Puppy Accessories | Long Island Designer Puppies
At Little Wonders Puppy Emporium, we make sure to only sell all natural foods and treats for your pup that are made in the United States. Some of the dog food and treat brands we carry include Fromm, Annamaet, Lotus and Dave’s Pet Foods. It is important to us that your puppy is eating high-quality food made in the U.S., which is why we carry these specific brands.
The “Made in the USA” label indicates that all products used to create the food have been made in the U.S., including packaging, ingredients, and production, according to Mindy Bough. Bough is the vice president of operations at the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center and is the head of the ASPCA’s Pet Nutrition Services, as stated by PetMD.
Thanks to the requirements of American-based food manufacturers, there are limited dangers and less likely recalls with “Made in the USA” labeled pet food brands. Experts recommend that pet owners choose these manufacturers because they use “specific quality control measures to assure the consistency and quality of the pet food,” according to PetMD. “It reduces the likelihood that the pet food company will have to issue a recall, and even enables them to hold products at the factory and wait until test results confirm that they are safe before shipping the products.”
Thanks to these precautions, you can feel more confident when purchasing American brands for your dog. USA Love List emphasizes that your pet will not be 100 percent safe consuming any pet food because all are at risk of bacteria or contamination (just like human food). However, they explain that your pup will be significantly safer than if you were to feed it a brand that is not labeled “Made in the USA.”
We care about your pups, and want to be sure they are eating healthy, American-made foods. To provide your pet with quality food made in the U.S., visit us at Little Wonders Puppy Emporium. Book your appointment for our Long Island Puppy Spa this season and learn how you can save!
