Pure Pet Food

- Review

Last year Ember was lucky enough to try some of Pure Pet Food’s Meaty Sweetie Treats.  You can read our review here. These treats were a perfect introduction to the Pure Pet Food brand, so I was very excited for Ember to try some of their food.

Ember is doing really well recently on her current food Guru, but we have been wanting to add a little bit of wet food to her evening meal, I instantly knew Pure Pet Food was the best first option.

The food we are lucky enough to try is Chicken Dinner, which is grain free and designed for sensitive dogs, perfect for Ember as she has quite a sensitive tummy.

Why You Should Go Cruelty Free

- Cruelty Free

According to cruelty-free international, over 115 million animals have been tested on worldwide. You have the power to use your voice and your choice to make a difference and say no to animal testing.  Here are a few more reasons why:

1. Animal testing is as cruel as it gets.  The animals are contained in small cages with no natural light, fresh air or room to move around. The tests are beyond cruel and the animals know nothing but fear and live a life full of suffering.

2. Technology advancements.  Companies will argue products are tested on animals to ensure they are safe for human use, but truth be told there are many alternatives to animal testing.  Technology has advanced to create modules which prevent harm to anyone or anything.

Keep The Ban | GE 2017

- Activism

 

So what if fox hunting is a tradition? So was slavery, child labour and witch hunting once, all so cruel and all so rightfully illegal. Traditions are not about the length of time something happens, they are about relevance and morals. There is nothing moral about dogs tearing these beautiful creatures apart for fun. It’s our choice and duty to make this world a better place, not be the generation who stand by and get their kicks out of cruelty and merciless killing. The ban was originally brought in because, as Britains, we saw ourselves as civilised, There is and never should be a place in our society for fox hunting to be considered a sport.  It is not only the foxes which are subjected to this abuse, the horses and dogs, typically beagles, which take part also suffer horrific injuries.

This is what the Conservative Party will bring back if the remain in charge of our country after the election tomorrow.  I’ll just leave that with you.

And while China have banned the sale of dog meat, which will come into force a week before the festival, there is no official ban of the actual event. Read More
