Where is the PetWay Food produced?
Our food is produced in the USA at Ohio Pet Foods. This facility has been producing pet food for 28 years. We have never had a recall due to the quality of the ingredients and the testing that the product undergoes before being shipped out to be consumed by your pets.
What certifications does The PetWay pet food have?
The facility that produces our food has an EU Certification. The food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO dog food nutrient profiles. Our food was formulated by animal nutritionists and veterinarians to meet the nutritional needs of your pet. Also with advantages such as prebiotics and probiotics for proper assimilation, and glucosamine and ghondroitin for joint support.
What is EU Certified?
EU certification means that the pet food and ALL of its suppliers must meet EU standards. Animal Plant Health Inspection Services (APHIS) is a division of the USDA.
To meet Eu certification a producer must:
1) Manufacture pet food that is fit for human consumption. According to European requirements, this is a defining factor for quality pet food. All human grade food must meet guidelines set by the USDA and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). By contrast, pet food without the APHIS European certification may contain by-products that are declared unfit for human consumption and have little or no nutrition. Ingredients not fit for human consumption often contain bacteria, chemical residue and carcinogens.
2) Obtain a health certificate. Pet food manufacturers must obtain a health certificate that is signed by APHIS after pet food manufacturing facilities have been inspected and officially approved by APHIS veterinary services. A health certificate must accompany each individual pet food shipment.
3) Meet labeling requirements. Pet food manufacturers who want APHIS European certification must meet strict labeling requirements that include listing all additives, preservatives, antioxidants and color. Labels must include a description of the pet food (complete or complementary) and describe the species for which it is intended (dog, cat or other animal) If the label indicates "complete," the food must be nutritionally complete for one daily serving. The label must be written in the official language of the country in which it's sold.
4) Pass quality controls. Suppliers of cereals, meat or fish must be approved by APHIS. Approval is based upon freshness, nutritional quality and digestibility. Quality control at the manufacturing site measure levels of protein and the percentage of fat. Additional quality controls cover hygiene, packaging and storage.

My dog got sick when he ate The PetWay's food.
Most likely you have been feeding your dog the same food for a long time. A sudden change may make him sick! We suggest you gradually introduce the food by mixing it with his old food. We have had several customers tell us their dogs actually picked their old food out from The PetWay's food and spit it on the floor!
My dog won't eat The PetWay's food!
Most dogs love the taste of our blends. However, some dogs have a preference for softer foods. Try mixing the food with some warm water to release the smell and soften the kibbles a bit.
