Go VEGAN♥For your PET FOOD_UK and EU Companies


The list below outlines the companies that have signed a PETA Statement of Assurance pledging that they do not conduct, contract out or fund animal tests in the developing, manufacturing, testing or marketing of their products.
**You are entitled to know if you are giving money to a pet food company that is responsible for the confinement and pain of animals in laboratories – animals who are just like the ones you care for at home.

One particularly notorious company which has carried out cruel and invasive tests is Iams. This company has a history of animal abuse, including near-constant confinement to barren cages, surgical debarking and the removal of chunks of muscle from dogs' thighs.
While Iams have made some improvements in response to an exposé by PETA US as well as campaign pressure from PETA affiliates across the world, they still confine cats and dogs in their own American laboratories for many years to conduct tests.

Important Notice: Ever thought about a meat-free diet for your animal companion?
Dogs and cats can thrive on appropriate vegetarian and vegan diets.
You can find out more on PETA US' Helping Animals website.

'Pet' Foods and Animal Testing Policies
The companion animal food industry has become big business in recent years. The market is currently dominated by international corporations - such as Procter & Gamble, the makers of IAMS and Eukanuba - who ruthlessly conduct experiments on animals to try to give their pet food a competitive marketing edge.

Slick advertising campaigns that promote a caring image obscure a reality of suffering and exploitation. However, as these cruel and unethical practices are being exposed through the work of Uncaged and others, decent animal guardians are seeking out responsible companies who produce pet food without cruel and unethical testing regimes.

Uncaged is working with other animal protection groups to persuade the companion animal food industry to clean up its act. Uncaged supported the BUAV's No Animal Testing Pet Food Standard. For companies to qualify, they had to prove that neither they nor their suppliers are engaged in animal testing that harms animals: that means no invasive laboratory experiments or keeping animals in captive laboratory or kennel conditions for lengthy periods of time - conditions that cannot fulfil their physical and psychological needs.

Unfortunately, the BUAV Standard is no longer operating. However, we have written to approved companies and obtained statements of confirmation from the following firms that they are still adhering to the Standard - they represent the ‘Premier League’ of anti-vivisection pet foods

***Brands to Boycott:

As mentioned above, the main culprits for cruel and unethical animal testing are the major international 'pet' food businesses.

•IAMS / Eukanuba owned by Procter & Gamble
•Hills Science Diet owned by Colgate Palmolive
The majority of pet food brands available in the UK are produced by two animal testing companies - "Nestlé Purina/Friskies" and "Pedigree, Masterfoods (Mars Inc)."

•Nestlé Purina/Friskies:
Alpo, Bonio, Felix, Go Cat, Gourmet,
Omega Complete, Proplan, Spillers, Vital Balance, Winalot.

•Pedigree, Masterfoods (Mars Inc):
Bounce, Cesar, Chappie, Frolic, James Wellbeloved, Katkins,
Kitekat, Pal, Pedigree Chum,
Royal Canin, Sheba,
Techni-cal (US & Canada), Whiskas.
Pedigree also manufacture Thomas rabbit food and Trill bird food.

'Pet' food content:

The content of animal foods raises additional, difficult ethical issues about the use of animals.
Included in our recommended lists above are vegetable-based foods and in the case of Vegecat, a supplement that provides felines with their essential nutrients that are missing from plant sources.
