Aldi won't tell us anything about their pet foods!
Aldi won't tell us anything about their pet foods!

With very little information on the packaging and even less on their website, Aldi's pet foods raise an awful lot of questions.

Our advice: When looking at any pet food: ignore everything except the ingredients list. Read our guide here.
