Such initiatives would continue to propel the overall pet food market size.

Therefore, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ensures that the ingredients used in pet foods are enlisted on the labels based on weight. In addition, it assesses claims on pet foods such as “maintains urinary tract health,” “low magnesium,” and “hairball control.”
