Pet owners should immediately seek veterinary care and advice for sick pets before doing anything else.

AAFCO and its members as feed control officials are not practicing veterinarians. AAFCO does not provide veterinary medical advice or recommendations of any type.

After a pet has received treatment, the pet owner may wish to file a complaint if they suspect that a pet food has negatively affected their pet’s health or was otherwise adulterated or misbranded. The pet owner may also choose to file a complaint if they suspect handling a pet food product has hurt a human’s health.
