Authority Information

Authority is a brand owned and sold by PetSmart. However, it has also been recently available from PetSmart’s partner company Chewy.

Authority was founded in 1995. It is not abundantly clear where Authority produces its food but it is believed that some is produced outside of the United States.

Authority Product Range

Dog Food

Authority has a very large dog food range which consits of a mix of dry food and wet/canned food.

Authority produces specialised recipes for almost all the well known niches. This includes puppy food, senior dog food, large and small breed food, and food for dogs with sensitive stomachs or coats.

Cat Food

Authority’s cat food range is also very large, although not as large as the dog food range. It also consits of a mix of dry and wet/canned food.

Authority’s cat food range has less niche products but still has the core offering including kitten and senior cat food.

Authority Nutrition

Dog Food

The nutrition offered by Authority dog food is unimpressive and would be considered average. It consists of modest proportions of protein and fat and a significant portion of carbohydrates.

Cat Food

The nutrition offered by Authority cat food is poor and not a fair reflection of a cats natural diet. It has a moderate proportion of protein and fat and a excessive proportion of carbohydrates.

Authority Ingredients

High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients

  • Chicken
  • Turkey
  • Beef
  • Lamb

Given the huge size of Authority’s product range, the range of meat and fish ingredients they use is relatively small. They tend to stick to the reliable staples of the industry such as Chicken and Beef. Despite this lack of variety, these ingredients can provide high-quality animal-based protein and fat.

Other Notable Ingredients

Corn and Corn Gluten Meal

Brown Rice and Oat Groats

Dried Beet Pulp

Canola Oil

Authority Animal Testing

We have no information at this time concerning what type of animal testing that Authority participates in.

We strongly believe that invasive or laboratory testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice. We hope that in future it will be eliminated or severely reduced.

Authority Recalls

Sadly, Authority is not a recall-free brand and has a single recall in its history. However, this recall was over a decade ago and since then they have been recall-free. This shows that in its recent history, authority has taken its safety and quality processes seriously.

2007 – Melamine Contamination – a large number of recipes had to be recalled as it was found that vegetable proteins were contaminated with melamine.
