This webinar will discuss the legal requirements for labeling pet or animal food. It will cover aspects of labeling such as the product name, the guaranteed analysis, the nutritional adequacy statement, feeding directions, and calorie statements.

Why Should You Attend:

Pet owners and veterinary professionals have a right to know what they are feeding their animals. The pet food label contains a wealth of information, if one knows how to read it.

This session is designed primarily for pet food manufacturers and labelers, and is focused on helping you clearly understand what is expected by the FDA so that pet food manufacturers and processors are in compliance with these regulations.
