Would the same laws and regulations apply to a cottage industry making dog biscuits? (I’ve actually spoken with a couple of lawyers, and they have no idea if I need a license, permit or certificate.) Thanks for your help.
Jackie, it’s likely that you wouldn’t be able to sell dog biscuits made from home. There is no state, as far as I’m aware, that specifically allows pet food, but a number of states clarify that they don’t allow it. I’m not surprised you’re having trouble finding an answer — it’s quite possible that even your health department won’t know. Unfortunately, I can’t give you a definitive answer either, but I won’t be surprised if you’re not allowed to do it.
