Pet Food Labeling Requirements

Product labels are subject to review upon request by the department. Under Montana law, all pet food products must be labeled in accordance with Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) model regulations. This provides uniform labeling for all pet foods and treats on the market, enabling consumers the ability to compare and contrast different products with ease.

  • Ingredient statement
  • Statement of nutritional adequacy
  • Feeding directions
