Dog lovers unite!
Every day we see dogs walking their owners – we live in a dog-friendly culture!
Our pups join us at outdoor cafés and wait for us while we shop. They greet us when we get home and their furry faces smile when our eyes connect. They depend on us, and it’s up to us to keep them healthy.
Recently I was chatting with a gal who rescued a dog. She was sharing photos and mentioned that she rescued her dog from being sent to a large skincare facility in a US southern state where they test their chemicals on dogs. Aargh!
Thousands of dogs are used for testing chemicals on their skin and are forced to inhale fumes. Just in the US alone, over 60,000 dogs are held to endure painful, harmful testing every year. This doesn’t include what happens overseas.
As dog lovers and animal lovers, at Qēt Botanicals we refuse to practice any such testing. On the contrary, we can safely use some of our treatments on our dogs for relief. Their ears and feet can benefit from wholesome plant-based care, just like we do.
We don’t test on animals, nor do we use any animal parts or by-products in our products. Common animal parts that go into conventional skincare include parts from chickens, snails, snakes, beetles, sheep, cats, dogs, pigs, cows, and horses.
In our proprietary, fresh formulas, we stick to what’s proven to help nourish and heal. Our resources and raw materials come from the plants and nutrients that Mother Nature abundantly shares with us.
So next time you’re out walking your dog, give them an extra little hug and a treat. You may have rescued them from a different kind of life, but at the same time, they’ve more than likely rescued you.
