Pet Food Safety Advocacy and information

Pet Food Safety

The Consumer Funded Pet Food Test

The Association for Truth in Pet Food http://truthaboutpetfood.com raised funds from concerned consumers, and has organized the first consumer funded scientific study of the contents of commercial pet food. You can read a brief overview of the results here: http://truthaboutpetfood.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/PetFoodTestPrintable.pdf and a detailed report of the results here: http://truthaboutpetfood.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/PetFoodTest1.pdf. The foods tested were purchased in the USA, but many of those brands/types are available in Canada. As concerned Canadian pet food consumers, we need to write to our MP's and MPP's to make them aware of this issue. Write to the chain stores that sell these products and express your concerns to them too! Look for our page on Facebook 'Canadian Cats for Safe Pet Food' facebook.com/catsforsafepetfood and join the Pet Food Safety discussion!
