Default "I bought my dog from an FDA approved breeder!"

This is a new one for me.
I've heard all kinds of excuses to justify buying dogs in pet stores, from liberating them to "well what's it matter?" but I finally got my first one that actually left me speechless for a little while.

She actually said, seriously now, that the breeder that supplied the dogs to Petland was FDA registered and sanctioned.



These are the people we are allowing to vote, own live animals, and breed themselves. I know that may sound harsh, but I don't really care.

"They're still a puppy mill" comes to mind.

Not to mention that the FDA doesn't "approve" dog breeding facilities. The USDA regulates them, so if the facility was big enough (a puppy mill) it may have been compliant with USDA regulations. Animal breeding is way out of the FDA's jurisdiction.

So unless your dog is a drug, a food additive, a medical device, a cosmetic . . .

What an idiot.

That's what I was thinking. Maybe they really meant USDA and just said FDA...let's hope so, anyway. Although that doesn't really make it any better.

There was a beagle breeder a few hours from me that bred thousands of beagles for a pretty major testing facility in this state that does a lot of testing for big pharma. Maybe she got it from there
