Pet Treat Testing is a very popular test package at Midwest Laboratories. Many Pet Producers take advantage of the packages available to them.
Midwest Laboratories offers a Basic and Extended Pet Treat Package on its Midwest Laboratories eStore.
A number of pet treat producers are really finding advantages in selling their products with analysis to back up claims for protein and calorie content. Consumers are more particular with respect to purchasing pet food and pet treat products. It is more important than ever for producers to provide this information to clients.
