Reminder: Iams Dog and Cat Food: A Double Whammy: Tested on Animals and Owned by Animal Testing Giant Proctor and Gamble

Here's the actual full title: Reminder: Iams Dog and Cat Food: A Double Wammy: Tested on Animals and Owned by Animal Testing Giant Proctor and Gamble: Your Dogs and Cats Would be Angry if they Knew You Bought their Food from a Company that Tested on their Relatives.

Yes, the title seems funny, but, unfortunately it’s true. I bet they would be angry if they knew some distant relative of theirs was a victim of animal testing for a product you feed to them. Would make me sick! Or, even worse, say one of your cats or dogs ended up as a victim. Makes the unnecessary reality even more real. Read on...

I'm sure there are still a few good people out there who don't support animal testing but who still give Iams to their dogs and cats. Well, believe it or not, Iams not only tests on animals, but also is owned by animal testing / abuser giant Proctor and Gamble.

I provided a snippet below from a site that details animal testing and Iams. This is backed up with actual footage. So, those who doubt the truth of these claims are easily silenced. More can be found at this site dedicated to proving Iams use of animal testing. Yes, it's hard to believe they can use animal testing when developing food, but really, there's no end to Iams and Proctor and Gambles' ideas on how to test on more animals.

What’s wrong with Iams? From: http://www.iamscruelty.com/FAQ.asp

For nearly 10 months, [we] conducted an undercover investigation in an Iams contract laboratory. What our investigator witnessed and captured on hidden camera would outrage any animal lover: dogs who had gone crazy from being confined to barren steel-and-cement cells, dogs who had been left on a paint-chipped floor after having their vocal chords severed and part of their leg muscles hacked out, dogs who were sweltering in scorching heat and shivering in bitter cold, and horribly sick dogs and cats languishing in their cages, neglected and left to suffer without veterinary care. The animals in Iams’ tests are no different from our dogs and cats at home when it comes to deserving companionship, play, a stimulating environment, and the right not to be tormented in painful experiments.
