    Have you heard?

    Good day to everyone on Pet Talk! I recently heard that the company that makes Iams pet food does testing on animals, and not just to see if pets will eat it. Has anyone heard anything about this? Unfortunately, I don't know much more than that. I find it hard to understand how a company that makes something to help us care for our pets can do something like this. If what I heard is wrong, please. please, please let me know? I certainly don't want to slam a company if this is just a rumor, just want to know the facts. Thanks and please give all your beautiful pets a hug from me!

    Hi Momcat! No, I haven't heard that and I don't often use that brand, but if that is the case then I certainly will boycott them in the future. I will be checking back to see what everyone else might have heard. If it is true, how terrible! Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

    IAMS is well known for animal testing. They have been caught out twice in the last four years, each time they were caught they promised not to test again...yeah right

    I won't buy IAMS because of this, hopefully one day they will be closed down

    Have you heard

    I've only been a member of Pet Talk for a short time but must say that I really enjoy the forums, comments, insights, and of course seeing pictures of all your gorgeous pets. That's why I posed the question about Iams. As I've gotten to know all of you through your postings, there was no question in my mind that I could trust what each of you might have to say. Gracie's Mom, I did check out that website as my Groucho kept playing leap frog across the keyboard. What I saw made me so angry, heartsick and a few other thoughts I can't share out of respect for those of you who may read this. (Go ahead, use your imagination, believe me it can't be worse!) One would think that with the technology available today that animal testing would be a thing of the past. Could it be that these places don't want to spend a little money to find a better alternative? Sorry, to go on like that. Groucho is going to get a few extra tummy rubs and hugs tonight, hope your fuzzy buddies do too. Thanks to each of you for your input, now I know this wasn't just a rumor.....
