Hi,

I want to run campaign for the PET FOODs like dog,bird,cat .I dont know about advertisement policies about these products as I searched Google's Ads policy there was no any particular criteria about Pet foods.

 

Can I run these Ads or Should I check before running them .

Hi 

I dont think there is any restriction policy about pet food, but there are some about pet pharmacies. So make sure you dont fall under Pet Pharmacies and you should be okay

for details about Pet Pharmacies check

Hello amolpomane,

 

theniks is correct about there being no restriction for pet food providing your don't advertise on specific trademarked brands. If you are going to be using generic terms such as "dog food" then you'll be able to run ads with no problem.

Have you tried to search the competition of your keywords in Google? In that way, you will have a preview of the live ads battling to be on the first page. 

 

The Help Center does not mention any restriction for selling pet foods.

 

You may research about long tail keywords as well to discover your niche market.

 

HAVE  A JUICY CAMPAIGN!
