ASCAS and WildWash have joined together and created a petition to regulate the non-pharmaceutical pet products industry in the UK. Sign our petition to help give voice and bring positive changes and improvements to the pet care industry.
At present there are no regulations for non-pharmaceutical animal shampoos and cosmetics. This means that anything can be put in a bottle and sold to pet owners. There doesn’t have to be an ingredients list, a best before date or any information that shows it is fit for purpose.
Our petition supports the work of the Environment Agency’s Chemical Source Control Project. This looks at a range of chemicals that have requirements under the Water Framework Directive (WFD). This legislation aims to improve and protect inland and coastal waters, reduce pollution, drive more sustainable use of water as a natural resource, and create better habitats for wildlife that live in and around water.
