Dog and cat lovers who care about the health and safety of their furry little friends use this app to identify harmful ingredients, recalled pet food and the products True Country of Origin by simply scanning the barcode found on every pet food product.
The Safe Pet Treats app identifies over 30 harmful ingredients used today by many pet food manufacturers including, BHA, BHT, Ethoxyquin, Propylene Glycol, and By-Products. You no longer need to remember every single harmful or toxic pet food ingredient because this app does it for you. Just scan the barcode and in less than 2 seconds you'll instantly know if the dog or cat food is safe. This app comes in handy when you're at the pet store looking at the wall to wall selection wondering which product is safe.
In addition to identifying harmful ingredients, the Safe Pet Treats app will also show you if the scanned product has been recalled by the FDA or manufacturer.
Our latest update now also tells you the products True Country of Origin. Some pet food companies use labels that say Made in the USA or Manufactured in the U.S. but fail to mention where the ingredients are sourced from. Only a handful of companies are U.S. Made and Sourced, the rest are either U.S. made with imported ingredients or U.S. made with domestic and imported ingredients.
For products made outside the U.S. & Canada, the app will show you that country's name, for example, "Made in China". For products made in the U.S. & Canada, the app will show you one of these results:
United States sourced and made (This is the best result you could get)
U.S. made with domestic and imported ingredients
U.S. made with imported ingredients
U.S. made with ingredient source not specified
U.S. made with North American ingredients
Canadian sourced and made
Canadian made with domestic and imported ingredients
Canadian made with imported ingredients
Canadian made with ingredient source not specified
Canadian made with North American ingredients
This cat and dog app was made by animal lovers (just like you). We found out about the hidden dangers in pet food and now we want to alert other pet owners so that they don't feed their furry little friends harmful pet food. We're not a giant corporation and we do not have multiple apps like other app developers. This is our only app and 100% of our attention is on it. We're adding products to the Safe Pet Treats database on a daily basis and we're regularly updating the app so that you can have an app that you can rely on and help protect your pet.
The Safe Pet Treats app can be used on all pet food products, not just treats.

•Scan barcodes at the pet store and identify bad dog or cat food ingredients.

Ratings and Reviews
Subscription Not Working
UPDATE: Love the fast reply from the developers of this app. So far things are now working. Thanks! I highly recommend this app for pet lovers who want to extend their pets’ lifespans. It’s all in the nutrition of dog food and this app is providing us all the research necessary. FIVE STARS!
Loved the app so much that I even selected the option A subscription of $0.99 per month. Unfortunately the Select Subscription option still shows up. I keep on clicking on option A but the same message keeps on popping out that I’m already subscribed to it. The only buttons to click on are Manage (takes me to my subscription list on my Apple ID) and Ok (which just takes me back to the selecting of option A or B). I’m pretty disappointed that I can’t use the app even after paying. PLEASE FIX THIS! It comes in handy for my special senior chihuahua who needs to stay clear from certain ingredients.
Developer Response ,
Hello, could you please email us at email@example.com with the email address you used to subscribe? We have seen this problem with one other user and we can quickly fix it but we'll need a little more information so please email us. We want to keep your Chi healthy and happy!
My hubby and I love the app so far! We have four cats and we care about the ingredients that are in the treats and food we give them. It is nice to go to a store and be able to scan treats we are considering purchasing. Although we can read the ingredients ourselves, we don’t know what every ingredient is and it’s nice to have another “pair of eyes” looking over the ingredients. I recently scanned a product that was not in their database and I was surprised to have a personal email the next day by the developer saying they had added the product to their database. Very impressed and I am grateful there is an app that cares about what we give those who give so much to us.
This app is pretty useless. First of all in order to even get in, it made me select annual- it wouldn’t work on Monthly. No where in the app does it give you an option to cancel- still trying to figure that out as I have no desire to continue my free trial.
The search function doesn’t work- you have to scan a barcode.
Nothing I scanned actually had country of origin- they all said “not available on website”. It listed benign ingredients such as peas or potatoes as “problematic”. You’re really better off going to the manufacture website and reading and being educated about pet food.
