Animal Food & Feeds

A safe animal food (feed) supply helps ensure healthy animals and people. To that end, the Center for Veterinary Medicine:

  • monitors and establishes standards for animal feed contaminants, including those in pet food,
  • approves safe food additives for animal food use, and 
  • manages the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) medicated feed and pet food programs.

This section provides information for complying with federal regulations concerning animal food and informational updates to keep interested parties informed on current issues.
