)-- Analytical Testing by SPEX CertiPrep Studies Levels of Toxic Metals in Pet Food
An Analytical Study by SPEX CertiPrep examines the toxic metal levels of several commercial pet foods. The pet foods studied consisted of both dry and wet foods for cats and for dogs.
SPEX CertiPrep’s pet food study has just been published in the January and February 2011 issues of Spectroscopy. An informative webinar on the subject is scheduled for February 2011.
Pet food is a multi-billion dollar per year business that affects pets and their owners on a daily basis. This study examined pet foods from a variety of sources to determine if there were potentially toxic elements present in the foods and if higher priced foods or higher quality ingredients equated to lower levels of toxic elements. A range of “budget” to “premium” grade pet foods samples were donated by pet owners or purchased in several different stores.
