Pet foods tend to be similar across the nation, although some pet food recipes are modeled on specific ecosystems.

More uses of artificial intelligence in pet food
Integrating artificially intelligent (AI) computer technology with pet food extruder hardware gives a manufacturer greater control over efficiency and product quality, while increasing their ability to trace and correct problems. Rodolphe Sivet, project manager with Clextral, described how artificial intelligence allows machines to make decisions, control operating parameters and perform maintenance before it becomes a problem. Clextral is a pet food and animal feed processing machine manufacturer.
