Authority pet foods were developed by PetSmart, Inc. and for a time, were exclusively sold at PetSmart. The brand was introduced in 1995 and since then, it has expanded its offerings to include dog food, cat food, and dog treats including a number of grain-free options. Both dry and canned recipes are available, and real meat is typically among the first few ingredients. Authority pet foods offers recipes for all life stages, along with large breed dog food and specialty foods for pets with food sensitivities.
