As pet lovers, we recognize the importance of finding quality treats for our pets that are made in the USA with US ingredients, but how does buying American Made products make a difference?

Buying USA Made products can seem like extra steps that take more time and even more money to purchase compared to non-American Made products. It might seem strange to read every label on everything we consider buying before we decide to purchase and some might say that it is a waste of time, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth.

American Made products are as important as the products themselves because they impact not only our economy but millions of Americans every year. Manufacturing is a cornerstone of the USA and purchasing American Made products provides jobs not only for our current workforce but for generations to come. By designing and building products here, we decrease the need for imports from other countries where other issues can arise including lack of foreign government’s labor and environmental impact standards.

Another important consideration is the safety of the products compared to their cost savings. Many other countries have lower standards and guidelines for manufacturers than we do here in the USA; which leads to lower quality, cheaper goods compared to their American counterparts. Example: Rawhide dog treats made in other countries are less digestible for your pet as these products go through bleaching processes where they are soaked with chemicals and dyes.

Buying American Made products can seem like a challenge but there are many different ways and resources to understand what it means to be Made in the USA and how to better shop for these products. We at Tartar Shield Pet Products are committed to making sure your pets are safe, healthy and happy, which is why all of our products are sourced and made in the USA.
