Pet food is a controversial topic when it comes to animal testing. Because our beloved pets will ultimately consume the goods, some claim that animal testing for pet food should be necessary in order to ensure our animals’ safety.
But just because pet products and animal testing both involve animals, it doesn’t mean they must be tied together. When we refer to animal testing in the pet food world, we’re talking about laboratory animals being subjected to invasive tests.
This is, I believe, what many animal testing advocates fail to recognize. Sadly, animal testing facilities often conduct unspeakably cruel and inhumane studies
The thing is, nothing ever has to be tested on animals. Not even pet food. Advancements in technology are allowing scientists to use microchips instead of animals to test drugs, questioning the necessity of any animal testing for any purpose.
But pet food is highly regulated in the US by the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Organization). In addition to the nutritional analysis, the food has to be fed to live animals. This is called a “feeding trial". In 2003, an undercover #PETA investigator filmed dreadful footage inside a feeding trial laboratory. The animal testing was commissioned by renowned industry giant Iams.
The footage shows sick, neglected suffering cats and dogs confined to small cages. Dogs were thrown on the floor after their vocal chords were cut off and their back-leg muscles removed. A dog was found dead, bleeding from his mouth in his cage
The following pet food brands still conduct laboratory feeding trials and/or test on animals in other ways:
