Bil-Jac Information

Bil-Jac is one of the oldest dog food brands and was founded in 1947 in Ohio. It was founded by two brothers who had recently returned from World War II.

However, for much of Bil-Jac’s history, they did not produce traditional dry dog food or kibble. However, in the 1980s, after manufacturing processes had advanced, Bil-Jac felt confident providing dry food, and since then, they have not looked back.

Bil-Jac Product Range

Bil-Jac has a moderately sized range of dog food products. This range is a mix of dry dog food, wet dog food, and dog treats.

At this time, Bil-Jac does not produce cat food in any variety.

Bil-Jac Nutrition

Bil-Jac dog food products provide mixed nutrition, but generally, they are above average.

The nutritional profiles consist of an above-average proportion of protein and fat and a below-average proportion of carbohydrates. Despite this, many of the recipes still have a significant proportion of carbohydrates.

Bil-Jac Animal Testing

We have no information regarding what type of animal testing Bil-Jac participates in.

We are strong believers that invasive or laboratory testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice. We hope it will see a significant decline in the future.

Bil-Jac Recalls

Sadly, Bil-Jac does not have a recall-free history. This recall taints their record and shows that there must have been lapses in their safety and quality processes.
