I informed about that the owners of the shop where I buy food for my pets. They were appalled. My vet suggested me to buy a specific product by Royal Canin for cats with urinary problems but, after those news, I resorted to another, similar product by another, less well-known but surely more serious, company.

Thank you very much for the information.
Fortunately my cat hasn't got FUS yet, but we are treating her with special food just to prevent the disease (she's a bit old). Anyway I bought a product by Farmina, an Italian company which is against vivisection.

This makes me want to puke! The people that get off on animal suffering have something terribly wrong in their head! To think people sit there and cheer for a dog to tear up a bear that has its claws removed(which is abominable, in the first place), and they have to raise these dogs and train them to do this!! They have a whole industry devoted to this, if they have corporate sponsorship! What a corporation!They act all warm and fuzzy in the U.S., but since the internet, their sins are visiting them in full force!!
I hope they know how disgusted people are with them!
Signed, noted, FB, reddit, Google+ and anyway else I can tell people to BOYCOTT Mars and Royal Canin!

I signed with so much FURY at the fucorporation "royal canin" that I am shocked I did not break my computer! Like an idiot I truly looked into the eyes of the poor bears eyes in the photo and it breaks my heart to see so much pain being brought onto this defenseless creature. What monsters these two legged inhuman shits that do this is beyond my understanding. I will tell you that not only is royal canin a barbaric company their product is dreadful, I have 3 shih tzu companions and was talked into trying royal canin's food for shih tzu's at my local petco store. Within 2 weeks of feeding them the CRAP royal canin calls the best food for shih tzu's all 3 were scratching themselves raw. Finally connected the dots (duh) and realized it was the crap royal canin calls food! Forget the vet bills, I did a very thorough research of the royal canin shih tzu "food?" main ingredient? Ground chicken FLOUR it goes done from there. So I guess I should not be shocked by their barbaric endorsement of this horrific act of bear baiting by the dogs. Hope the dogs turn on the trainers, that would be just karma.

Appalling. But don't just punish Royal Canin, punish Mars, the ultimate owner of the company, they should also suffer the consequences - not more of the following products: Anything from: M&Ms, SNICKERS, DOVE/GALAXY, MARS/MILKY WAY and TWIX. Other leading brands include: 3 MUSKETEERS, BALISTO, BOUNTY, MALTESERS and REVELS.

The contact MARS link is http://www.mars.com/global/about-mars/contact-us.aspx - write and tell them you won't buy any more of the above products until this barbaric practice stops.

This is just plain abominable and reprehensible. And then they have the nerve to claim that they have quality dog food. Royal Canin and Mars Corp. need to be shut down for sponsoring animal cruelty and torture. Nobody in their right mind would want their babies to eat mess like this. There is no telling WHAT your babies are ingesting, along with bad spirits. You know they have to be in the food. Then you're wondering just why YOUR baby is acting crazy!
