I've already heard a lot of incidences where people use animals to test their products... it's makes mad and very concerned at the same time (and I know that a lot of people feel the same too)... There's gotta be something done before more animals are continuously being innocently killed. My dog was on this brand of dog food in its puppy stage and I'm glad I switched after 2 months. http://www.peta.org/feat/contract/o-other15.html
Hi, When science embarked on animal testing in order to find solutions in the domain of health, household products, cosmetics and so many others, they went too far in their research by making their tests so cruel and inhumane. It's a subject that has affected me deeply when i was growing up and it was one of the reasons i became a vegetarian at 14! I was against the way animals were treated in the abattoirs, the way they were shoved and traumatised.... I try to do my best to buy products that have the label "not tested on animals". If you look at this website www.buav.org the first thing that hits you is "every 3 seconds an animal dies in a european laboratory". And,then, reading about the unbelievable cruelty is horrific. We love our dogs, cats and pets and we are saddened to see that their brothers and sisters are being killed.
Animal tesing............I think it is just too cruel, why do they test MAKE-UP on animals for? it is C.R.U.E.L. so cruel that i don't wear make-up all the time. I did a poster in school once saying how cruel animal testing is, I got high marks on it, not that i care that i got high marks. its better for it to stop full stop. WelshPuppy
I dont know if they make dog food or not, but procter and gamble do animal testing, they make tide and pringles, and other things. my sister called and asked them if they did animal testing and they said yes becuse it was the law! they could buy some sort of kits that do a better job of testing the product and cost 30cents less than the animal testing does. so please check your lables and DO NOT buy procter and gamble products.......please
what makes me laugh is when some people say they love animals so much, but they eat meat, wear leather, cow hide/suede, and fur, and never show their animals any love, or taking care of their needs. i could never eat or wear a kill, can you? after knowing they suffered so, for our needs :(
Proctor and Gamble owns Iams/Eukanaba. Products with the catchphrases, "not tested on animals"/"cruelty free", are not necessarily 'safe'. They may get other labs to do the testing for them therefore the products are still tested or they may buy vats of chemicals that have already been tested and again they're not responsible. It's exactly that, a catchphrase. Even if you are buying a company's products that are cruelty free you could still be supporting their parent company which tests. You really have to do your homework to know what you're supporting when you make a purchase.
hundreds of years ago when the first people came to live in our country how do you think they fed themselves and their families? they hunted, used the meat to feed their families, and the skins to clothe their families. i am not opposed to eating meat and wearing leather. i do think there is a difference between raising cattle for human consumption and raising animals specifically for their fur. i work with hunters. most of them know not to bring the subject up in front of me cause they think i am a tree hugger. one person got great delight in the fact that she might be able to hunt bear this past year. trophy hunting i am not a fan of. but most of the people i work with eat what they hunt. they also participate in a program where they hunt to feed those less fortunate people who cannot afford to buy food. and as far as testing products on animals. well those opposed to it don't seem to mind putting their animals on frontline, or heartguard or any number of the products in veterinary medicine.did you know that they test these products on animals? the testing includes the death of the animals. they keep giving the dogs heartguard until they die to see what the lethal dose is. it is called a kill study. and it is done with just about every medication that we have to protect our animals. so if you are going to ban one company for theiir inhumane procedures on using animals as test subjects then i suggest you find an alternative for caring for your animals.
As cruel as it seems...animals do humas a great service by giving their lives to science. It is the very reason we have cures for many illinesses today. It is why you can enjoy a healthy life, and expect to live longer. Yes..it is sad, but sometimes you have to try to put thing into perspective.
That's true, all medications used by both humans and animals are tested on animals. With eveyr medication, some of thee animals are given lethal doses to determine what levels of dosage are required that have a minimum amount of side effects wtih a maximum amount of effectiveness against the disease or whatnot. Computer studies don't work as far as this goes. If you want to go against every product that is tested on animals, you may as well stop taking any and all medications, overthe counter or otherwise, and stop giving them to your animals. Your veterinarian probably did kill studies on animals in college, shouldyou boycott all veterinarians?
I think every thing that has to do with animal testing should be boycotted. It's wrong, cruel, inhumane. The kind of lives these animals live until they are finally killed, or just die is torture. There's a difference between hunting for food. The animals that are hunted for food , one shot it's dead ,no suffering, living in a labratory being pumped full of lethal doses of poison, a life full of pain until it dies.Trophy hunting I can't stand,hunting for food I don't mind.My hubby hunts deer,wild turkey,he fishes.
So seriously, redrosered, are you going to stop taking your dog to the vet? Are you going to stop going to the doctor? Are you never going to use any medication, over the counter or prescribed? Are you going to stop giving your dogs all vaccinations, all heartworm and flea medications? Hospitals? Walmart and most grocery stores have pharmacies that dispence drugs tested on animals, are you going to boycott all those places? I dont think that's realistic. Or intelligent, for that matter.
Animal testing is wrong. The life of cruelty these poor animals live .It hurts to think about it. All of us can do our part ,if even a little to help these poor animals . Even if it's only writing a letter about your feelings on animal testing.Most of the times their conditions are not humane ,and they live of life of fear, and constant pain.That's no way to live. Then they are pumped up full of toxins,or cut open,given cancer. I hate rodents ,but even the rodents don't derserve that kind of life.So their existence is live a life of pain until they die,or they are killed.What a waste of perfectly healthy beautiful animals.
I think that anyone who is a part of this site loves pets a lot, or they wouldn't be here. Animals do suffer from testing. Humans even suffer from using products that haven't been fully tested. Right or wrong this is a moral issue that have many views and in no way shows how much a person loves animals or not. Many people love babies and are prochoice. It doesn't mean they love babies any less. Many people eat meat and wear leather and love their pets with all of their hearts. I wish things were black and white, but that is not always the case.
