Cruelty Free Dog Food | Our Favourite Brands

Despite claiming to love and care about animals, many pet food companies test their food and elements of their food on lab animals.  These animals, many of whom are bred for the sole purpose of testing food, are subject to inhumane and invasive tests.

Of course, if food is going to be consumed by our pets some believe it is necessary for the food to be taste tested, for safety.  It is also a legal requirement for the food to be tested on live animals.  However, this does not have to be conducted in an inhumane feeding trial laboratory environment.  Check out this article ( if you want to know more (warning it’s pretty upsetting).

However, so many companies now undertake their testing in much more humane ways.  These trials are not undertaken on lab animals, so therefore – no animal testing!  A common way for food to be taste tested by employee’s volunteering their pets.  There are a few rules which much be adhered to including the number of healthy dogs used, the length of the trial and the information recorded throughout.

Another way of ensuring your dog’s treats are ethically made is by buying from independent treat companies.  These treats are typically made from minimal ingredients and the finished treats are taste tested by the owners own lucky pups.
