Before any product enters our facility, before any truck is unloaded, an inspection is made and random samples are taken. These samples are then taken to the facility's laboratory for screening, testing and analysis. The range of tests also includes proximate, aflatoxins, vomitoxins, peroxide values, microbial, and temperature, among others.
Our facility also undergoes regular inspections by the USDA and APHIS. The plant is a member of the Pet Food Institute, and as such, is continuously updated on all regulation changes.
The plant is also notified immediately of any outbreaks that would affect production so that any precautions or stoppages can be made.
All poultry based meals and frozen poultry are supplied and received only from facilities that process poultry and no other meats. These facilities are USDA/APHIS approved facilities. The poultry included in our formulas are all hormone free and steroid free, and contain human grade chicken fed on real feed with no waste included.
Fish oils are received only from suppliers that are USDA/APHIS/NMFS approved. Our fish oils are naturally preserved by the supplier.
Our facilities have built a close relationship with all of their suppliers, conducting long-term research and development to be at the top of their profession and the industry. Between them, they have years of experience with which they are able to bring to the table the finest in companion animal food production.
