The fact they replied, means they are worried about public opinion. Lets hope the investigators keep on getting informers on the inside. At present I wouldnt buy IAMS. The same with Proctor and Gamble. I wrote and asked them if they used animals for testing. They said no cruelty took place, but it is a known fact that cruelty does take place. It is up to our governments to ban animal research. Unfortunately they do just the opposite and demand that all medicine be tested on animals.
