Who regulates dog food

All dog food in the United States is regulated by AAFCO, the Association of American Feed Control Officials, which is under the umbrella of the FDA. AAFCO determines the minimum levels of nutrients that must be present in foods that are sold for pets or livestock. Though many dog foods claim to be for puppies, seniors, or specific breeds, 99% of foods are formulated to meet AAFCO’s minimum nutrient requirements for “all life stages.”
