COMPANIES THAT TEST ON DOGS AND OTHER ANIMALS

While I understand that it may be difficult to avoid all products, any effort you make to cut back on purchasing from these companies will save the lives of many animals including cats, dogs, guinea pigs, mice, monkeys, pigs, rabbits, rats, sheep and other innocent animals from pain, cruelty and death.

Please don't use me for research & then kill me, I deserve better!
33 animals die in laboratories per every second that passes - world wide. Yet there are around 450 alternative methods to test product without using animals - and many successful companies round the world use these alternative methods.

Companies that do test on animals commonly use the DraizeTest (all animals that receive this painful test are killed after the test is administered and when the test is administered the animals are not given any type of painkiller) and the LD-20Test (Lethal Dose 50 Test). Many companies also use vivisection - the practice of cutting into or using invasive techniques on living animals.

Research has shown that testing on animals is a highly ineffective way to identify products and drugs that are harmful to humans. 

In fact most of the tests done on animals are actually discarded! So, if you are still under the impression that testing on animals is an unfortunate necessity to protect humans from harm you now know otherwise! Most researchers and doctors admit that due to the anatomic and physiological differences between humans and non-human animals the tests are irrelevant! For answers too many frequently asked questions (FAQ) about animal experimentation and why it is not effective or necessary you can click here.

As Aga Khan (Prince Sadruddin) said in 1933, "The philosophy behind vivisection, the sacrifice of creatures we regard as 'inferior' beings, differs little from that behind the concentration camp or the slave trader."

Take a look at the logo’s below - you will recognize many of them - including pet food manufacturers!

Below that listing you can click to see an even more extensive international listing.

Important Note

1.0 Use of Foods, Herbs, Alternative Medicines:

Safe use of items and protocols in the article above, is your sole responsibility.

Foods, herbs and alternative medicines have health issue, condition and conventional drug interactions. Safe use of all substances and protocol are your responsibility.

Before you use any substance or protocol do your research. Check for cautions, contradictions, interactions and side effects. Do not use substances or protocols not suitable to your animal's individual circumstances.

If your animal has an underlying condition substances and protocols may conflict.

2.0 Definition of Holistic…

Food, herbs, alternative medicines are NOT ‘holistic’ they are a substance and MAY, or may NOT be ‘NATURAL’.

If you use a ‘natural’ substance (ie. an herb) you are using a natural substance, not a holistic substance.

Holistic is not defined by use of one or several substances. Holistic is an approach.

Definition of “holistic” from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary & Thesaurus © Cambridge University Press

Adjective

"relating to the whole of something or to the total system instead of just to its parts"

"Holistic medicine attempts to treat the whole person, including mind and body, not just the injury or disease."

Holistic is a way of approaching life, and within that health, and well-being.

3.0 Expectation a natural substance remedies a health or behavioral situation.

A natural substance used to treat symptoms. But, if factors causing the underlying issue remain you do not have a remedy.

Remedy requires a comprehensive approach. It is necessary to identify root cause. Remove items that trigger, cause or otherwise contribute to issues. Holistic approach includes design, implementation to treat, remedy and maintain long-term health.
