    The thread regarding the 10 year old cocker spaniel, Cody, is closed so I'm starting a new one. I didn't get to the thread until a few minutes ago but as I read it I wondered, is vet integrity outdated? I remember reading recently about another 10 year old dog who was brought to a vet to...

    I am sick of seeing fish in carnivals. Its outlawed in the UK as far as I know, and I want the same here in the US. I'm going to run a petition, and educate more people. Mom told me to take it to City Hall even. I want fish being used in games to be listed as animal cruelty. What do you think?

    I for one think its wrong that pet stores carry puppies and kittens. Because they really do not care where the animal goes. And when you buy a puppy from a pet store you have no idea how the parents acted or if they had any medical problems. I know there are some nicer places that sell nice AKC...

    Have you guys heard about the cruel tests that Iams does on animals in their labs? :( I was shocked and disgusted to learn about this last year because I had raised my two kitties on Iams. My kitties still love the stuff but I switched over to a food that doesn't test on animals. I still think...
