Does anyone have any truth to the stories that IAMs has used harsh treatment of animals in their testing practices? I have heard some things but just want to know if there are any articles published with the truth. We currently feed IAMs but I do not want to support this behavior if it is true. Thanks. dog

Hi Zoe Mae,
We have never used Iams because of their animal testing practices. When you do research on the internet it's hard to know what's the truth and what's not. But my mommy has seen some pretty sick videos of animal testing done at their labs. A PETA volunteer was actually hired by IAMS and took videos, then posted them on the internet. Very sad. But PETA has it's downfalls too. We don't agree with everything they do either.
We avoid all "mainstream" dog food companies!

Zoe Mae-

I don't know much about IAMS' practices in terms of animal welfare and testing, but I feel obligated to point out that healthier formulas are available in the same price range wink

Formulas that don't contain animal byproducts or fillers can be had for around the same price, and you generally won't need to feed as much of them, so it's probably worth looking into a switch anyway. That's just my opinion, though- I too avoid "mainstream" brands.

Please pick up the book Food Pets Die For by Ann N. Martin. There is extensive research done on Iams/Purina/Hills and their foul practices on animals. A whole chapter devoted to them.

I believe nothing that comes from the mouths of the lying animal killers that call themselves PETA, but there are better foods than IAMS available for the about the same price.

PETA is a bunch of psycos, but IAMS vets qualify to join PETA.
Here is PETA's job requirements:
Must be Mental Asylum Escapee
Must Love to Abuse Animals
Must have severe mental problems
ONLY level 10 psycos allowedbig laugh

I don't believe PETA and I don't believe IAMS. But both are pretty wierd groups...Isn't PETA a cultlaugh out loud? And they claim to be an organization...big laugh

Isn't PETA listed on the US Terrorist groups? Or am I mistaken?
