What is AAFCO and What Does it Do For Your Dog’s Food?

What AAFCO is for the Pet/Livestock Food Industry, and What AAFCO Does Not DoIn many industries, there are active programs and collaborations intended to keep government at bay and let the guidance and direction on better business practices be determined by the industry itself.
