​At PetPeople we are a group of dedicated and passionate pet people. We are so enthusiastic to engage our customers, exchange information, and work together to solve common pet problems. We hope you will continue to come to us with questions, problems or situations regarding your pets’ care. It is our goal to be a partner with you and your veterinarian in the health and well-being of your pet.


While we are happy to advise you and share our knowledge with you, we would never propose that our recommendations be used instead of consulting with your veterinarian about any concerns or issues. You know your pet better than anyone, and should always use your best judgement regarding obtaining the best care for your pet. ©2015 PetPeople Enterprises, LLC

Things to Remember


  • The ingredient panel lists food in descending order by weight of ingredient. Thus, the first ingredient prior to processing is most prevalent, etc
  • If grains are used in the food, whole grains offer higher nutritional value than grain flours or other fractions.
  • Companies that manufacture their own food have better quality control over ingredients and the manufacturing process.

Pet food is what we feed our pets every meal for every day of their lives. Their nutrition is important!

Ask yourself these questions.

  •  Can you recognize at least the first five ingredients listed on the label?
  • In an adult diet, is meat the first ingredient listed?
  • Does the food avoid using filler type ingredients such as corn, wheat or soy?
  • Is there clear contact information on the bag telling you information about the company and/or manufacturing?
  • Has your pet food ever been involved in a recall?


If you can’t answer each of these questions, it might be time to dig deeper into what you are feeding your pet.
