Default Dog Treats - Legal Questions

My wife, a chef, is considering starting an online business selling homemade gourmet dog treats. Basically she would be baking in our own kitchen and selling the food over the Internet. Does anyone know the legality of this? Are there any things we should be aware of? Licenses, permits, etc.

So far the only information on the topic I can find is this page on the FDA's web site: http://www.fda.gov/cvm/consumerpetfood.html

So it looks like we don't require FDA approval provided we only use ingredients that are already FDA approved. Does anyone know if there are separate sets of state laws on this topic that we should be aware of? If so, would we run into issues when selling over the Internet to other states? Does the law require a completely separate kitchen for the business?

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
