The following information on Passover foods for pets is from various sources and posted on March 17, 2009.

Some common chometz ingredients in pet food from the Star-K:
Wheat (cracked, flour, germ, gluten, ground, grouts, middlings, starch), barley (cracked, flour), oats (flour, grouts, hulled), pasta, rye, and brewer's dried yeast. Any questionable ingredient should be reviewed by a competent rabbinic authority.

Some common ingredients which may be kitniyos but are permitted in pet food:
Beans, buckwheat, brewer’s rice, corn, grain sorghum (milo), millet, peanuts, peas, rice, safflower, sesame, soybeans, soy flour, and sunflower.

Ed.note: A product listing both meat and dairy ingredients may not be used any time during the year.

Ed. Note: Any pet food should be purchased before Passover, so that any possible chometz in the vitamins would be batuled.

From Kosherquest.org: Only clay or wood-based Kitty Litter may be used on Pesach.

Feed available at zoos is often chometz and should not be purchased or fed to the animals on Pesach.
