Pet Food Info

Pet food companies are dedicated to producing food products for cats and dogs to support long, healthy lives. Today’s pet foods are the result of decades of research on the nutritional needs of cats and dogs.

Pet food that provides total nutrition, generally called "complete and balanced”, is one of those miraculous products of the twentieth century that altered the way people live their lives. Pet food, along with expanded access to veterinary care, resulted in longer, healthier lives for pet cats and dogs. With just a small can of food or scoop of kibble, pet owners are able to fulfill all the nutritional needs of their family’s cats or dogs.

Just how did such a product become possible? Today’s pet food products have their origin in the 1860s when an American electrician from Ohio was in London trying to sell lightning rods. >> Learn More
