When it comes to your pets and the products you buy for them, who says “Safe” is safe?

  • For many classes of pet products, manufacturers are not required to test their products.
  • Safety claims go unchecked due to lack of industry oversight.
  • Unlike consumer products – there are no standards to ensure product safety.
  • Manufacturers pay for positive product reviews.

So how do you, the pet owner, cut through the marketing hype? The Center for Pet Safety was founded to be your advocate and work to separate marketing fact from fiction. We’re working to bring you facts. Welcome to the Science of Pet Safety!
