Smile List of Dog Food Companies that DON'T Test on Animals

Quote:

"Animal testing for pet food is not necessary or required by law, and humane alternatives do exist. Non-invasive, nonlethal, and cage-free "in-home" testing is conducted by PetSci, and collaborative veterinary clinic studies allow sick animals who are volunteered by their guardians to participate in humane feeding trials that can determine the beneficial effects of nutrition on a specific illness.

The following companies have stated in writing that they do not test on animals in laboratories. Companies that are not on this list either responded to let us know that they do conduct laboratory experiments on animals or failed to respond to our numerous inquiries and are assumed to conduct laboratory experiments on animals."

[Clearly, this isn't an all inclusive list, but here ya go nonetheless. Please let me know if anyone discovers additions for this list! ]

Thanks for this great list!

I don't know about Primal, but I recently switched my girls to Primal after reading about some of the recalls that NV had.

Just an update - I spoke directly w/ Matt on the phone to confirm this post/message was from him, and indeed it is.

So YAY for Primal - they DO NOT and never would even consider testing any of their foods on animals.

THANK YOU Primal!

I will amend our list to reflect this great info.

Not to rain on the parade here....but while these companies may not test on animals...trust me at some point the ingredients have been. It's an argument in semantics.

I hear ya. Some companies ensure they source all of their ingredients cruelty-free as well.

But even if some of the ingredients in a food are animal tested (or were, historically) - I think it still benefits animals to avoid the food-testing trials, which are horrible. There is a video of a food-testing facility out there (not the Iams one, a recent one), and it's just heart-wrenching to watch these poor dogs live their lives in cages when it really isn't necessary.

So to me, anytime you can avoid animal testing in any way, or at any stage of the process, it's a win.

I don't know, and I might contact them too bc I really do like them and respect them so much. I'd love to hear that they also don't test.

Ah! Good news -- this is what it says on the Orijen site:

""This is a question we’re asked a lot, and our position on animal testing is simple - we conduct only those tests we would allow our own companion dogs and cats to participate in. If it’s not OK for our dogs and cats, then it’s not OK for any other cats and dogs. We perform only non-invasive tests, which including palatability (taste), urine pH and digestibility (the latter through stool analysis only). These tests are never performed with dogs or cats kept in a laboratory environment (cages).""

Yay, thanks a bunch Ann!!! I really like the Orijen kibble, so I'm glad to see their statement about non-invasive practices.
