The Cruelty Behind Iams Pet Food

Iams Pet Food Cruelty

(08:18) For nearly 10 months in 2002 and early 2003, a PETA investigator worked undercover at Sinclair Research Center, a laboratory hired by Iams, and discovered a dark and sordid secret beneath the wholesome image of the dog- and cat-food manufacturer.

Iams dog/cat food would like us to believe that their pet food will make your dogs and cats happy and energetic, just like the ones on the commercials, unfortunately behind every box of Iams Dog and Cat food lies a secret. Dogs going crazy from intense confinement to barren steel cages and cement cells, dogs left piled on a filthy paint-chipped floor after having chunks of muscle hacked from their thighs; dogs surgically debarked; horribly sick dogs and cats languishing in their cages, neglected and left to suffer with no veterinary care, and all this from a companion animal food company?

If you truly love animals, join the international boycott of Iams/Eukanuba and "Proctor and Gamble" products. For more information, visit


What you can do
Call, write, e-mail, or fax Iams and Proctor & Gamble. Tell them that you won’t buy Iams products for your animal companions until they stop conducting experiments on animals and, instead, rely on laboratory analysis of formulas for nutritional composition and in-home studies using dogs and cats who have been volunteered by their human companions.
