As you probably know, the Pack Leader has been making the rounds at various pet food companies and manufacturing facilities to examine how pet food is made, how it is regulated, and how it is packaged. We have been gathering this information for presentation to you, the reader, in hopes we can all learn to understand and regulate our own pet food.

The PetsWeekly Pocket Guide to Pet Food Labels is a quick look at the most important parts of a pet food label, which is a legal contract between you and the pet food manufacturer. This is part of our in-depth look at labels, pet nutrition, and pet food manufacturing.
