Tell Iams to Stop Experimenting on Animals

From People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

Iams also continues to perform invasive and deadly experiments on species other than cats and dogs. In one study, Iams gave Purdue University nearly $200,000 to conduct a two-year study in which experimenters taped the tails of mice and then raised their hind legs off the floor to cause the animals' muscle to deteriorate.

INFORMATION

In 2002 and early 2003, a PETA undercover investigation at Sinclair Research Center, a laboratory hired by Iams, uncovered a dark secret: The dog and cat food manufacturer funds animal testing. Dogs were left piled on a filthy floor after chunks of muscle had been hacked from their thighs, and extremely sick dogs and cats were left in cages to suffer without any veterinary care. Watch the complete undercover footage from this investigation below.

After intense pressure from PETA and its supporters, Iams severed its ties with Sinclair and agreed to end invasive experiments on dogs and cats. Iams also conducts in-home nutritional studies with companion animals who live with their families in homes. But Iams still keeps up to 700 dogs and cats in its Dayton, Ohio, laboratory for nutritional studies.

Iams also continues to perform invasive and deadly experiments on species other than cats and dogs. In one study, Iams gave Purdue University nearly $200,000 to conduct a two-year study in which experimenters taped the tails of mice and then raised their hind legs off the floor to cause the animals' muscle to deteriorate.

Even though Iams has made some progress, we must continue to send the message that safe, healthy dog and cat food does not require harming any animals. Until Iams agrees to implement 100 percent in-home testing, to stop imprisoning dogs and cats in its laboratory, and to stop paying others to conduct deadly experiments on animals, we encourage consumers to purchase companion animal food from companies that do not conduct laboratory tests on animals.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
