Petitioning Petco

Petco: Stop selling ineffective homeopathic products for pets.

The scientific evidence is definitive that homeopathic remedies don't work. They provide only placebo effects for people, and they have no health benefits when given to our pets.

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission recently ruled that over-the-counter homeopathic products for humans cannot be sold unless marketers, "effectively communicates to consumers that (1) there is no scientific evidence that the product works and (2) the product’s claims are based only on theories of homeopathy from the 1700s that are not accepted by most modern medical experts." Pet owners deserve the same honest information about homeopathic products for pets!

Petco currently sells the  Homeopet line of homeopathic products, online through Petco.com and the Petco subsidiary Fosters and Smith, and in the company's retail stores. If pet owners mistakenly believe such products have real health benefits, they may delay seeking veterinary care, and this can harm the health of the pets they are trying to help. 

Please sign this petition and encourage Petco to stop selling these worthless products with misleading marketing suggesting they can help sick animals.
