In praise of independent testing: Consumer Lab

We can be easily drawn in and convinced of products that seem to offer us the hope of cure or improvements for both ourselves and our dogs. Especially if an illness is chronic and longstanding, people become desperate and very vulnerable to marketing claims and personal anecdotes.

Consumer Lab puts my feet on solid ground. They are a fee-based, independent lab that tests products. Fee-based and independent. These are confidence building key words. After the hundredth time I’d asked my veterinarian if a particular new product would help my dog, my rehab vet rolled her eyes and sent me off to Consumer Lab for the answers. For a modest annual fee, you’ll find independent research that debunks hype. You can find them here.
