DAD’S Pet Foods (Discontinued)

 No recalls.

George Ainsworth Lang (“Dad” himself) started making his own dog food when his springer spaniel had an unexpected litter of puppies in 1933.


The company grew over the years to offer dog and cat food made with ingredients sourced from local farmers. However, in spring 2021, we began hearing reports that DAD’S pet food had been discontinued.

The brand line was manufactured by Ainsworth Pet Nutrition, the same company created by the DAD’S founder. The family still owns and operates the company and other lines of pet food.
