Default Dont Buy Iams

Never buy Iams dog food. Recent searches have found Iams to be doing cruel tests on dogs. NEVER EVER EVER buy dog food from Iams. Its probably not even good for them.

Thanks for that post, Shredhead! Check out some of the threads in the Dog Food forum and you'll be relieved to see that we've been ranting and raving about Iams/Eukanuba (as well as many others).

You're right. The food is garbage. Part of the abuse of their lab animals is feeding the poor creatures their products!

I've always wondered why anyone would think that a company that has no regard for animals in their care would have any care for animals belonging to customers. It's just about profit. And hype.

Omg that absolutly disgusting and heartbreaking I teared up many times.I felt horrible for the one dog who was so afraid she had her self as close against the back of her kennel wall as possible. Other of those dogs seem like the would love to run and play and have families who love them. But because Iams is such a big company major action will probley not be taken and these dogs will probley die in this horrid state. I feel so bad right now and wish I could adopt them all.

It's always a shock when you first come across that website. It has been out for awhile but I think that people always need to be reminded of that. Also, keep in mind that Iams is not the only company that does tests like that. I always assume that they do invasive testing until I find out otherwise. Those companies that make those junk dog foods are obviously not moral so why would they care if they treated their test animals well or not.

wow I'm speechless, thanks for finding that link and that was sad. I can tell you this much I wouldn't be a good PI cause I would have to hurt those people working there. Oh well never will Purina, Science Diet, IAMS, etc. etc. get business from me, those people need to be shot Thank god I joined this forum you people are awesome in here, and made me and others realize that the big companies aren't always the best. Pretty sad when the only thing they care about is profit, and yet another reason why I love animals more than people

Default Oh...

When my dog was a pup he was on Iams. My vet is a really good vet but he did say Iams was good dog food. I am not going to visit that site you guys are talking about I'll just take it from you that Iams is BAD. Well Lucky has been of Iams for a few years its all good.
