PETA QUICK TIPS: Make Some Noise – Never Be Silent!
"Every day, animals lose their lives in awful ways. From the factory farm to the dinner table, they are mutilated, crammed into cages, and killed in painful ways. They are shackled, beaten, and forced to perform for entertainment.
They are poisoned and blinded in experiments. And they are skinned alive for fashion. They suffer, yet they cannot ask for the abuse to stop. That's up to us. Pledge never to be silent in the face of abuse and exploitation."
"Treats such as hard plastic bones, sterilized real bones, ice cubes, cow hooves, antlers, bully sticks are too hard for your pet and may cause tooth fractures. Dental treats that have received the Registered Seal by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) are recommended.
The VOHC is an organization that exists to recognize products that meet preset standards of plaque and tartar/calculus retardation in dogs and cats. VOHC is an excellent resource for dental diets, treats, water additives, gels, toothpastes, and tooth coatings, that help retard plaque and tartar on the teeth of animals."
