Feeding Trial Certificates

All of our daily diets for dogs have passed the Association of Animal Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) protocol feeding trials at Cal Poly Pomona. In fact, the trials conducted at the university were much more stringent than the AAFCO protocol standards, as the Animal Care and Use Committee (ACUC) of the university found the AAFCO feeding trial to be too rudimentary.

The reality is our diets have passed trials that exceed AAFCO standards. AAFCO only requires four blood parameters to be tested in just six dogs. Just Food For Dogs (JFFD) spent an entire year looking at complete blood counts (CBC) and full internal organ chemistry (CHEM) panels in a total of 30 adult dogs.

JFFD is the first pet food company ever to conduct humane feeding trials at a major university using faculty and student dogs living happily in their own homes. Most pet food companies do not run trials at all and those that do tend to use laboratories that house beagles that live their lives for animal testing. Like everything we do at JFFD — we did it a better way!
