On September 10, 2018, Unilever issued a press release announcing that they are supporting efforts to institute a global ban on animal testing. According to the statement, “Unilever today announced its support for a global ban on animal testing for cosmetics as part of an ambitious new collaboration with animal protection leader Humane Society International (HSI).”
Animal testing for cosmetics has actually been banned since 2013 in the EU. Unilever is hoping that by supporting HSI’s #BeCrueltyFree initiative, they can help to encourage other countries to adopt a similar ban.
To further demonstrate their commitment to the cruelty-free cause, they also announced that their beauty and personal care brand, Dove, will be 100 percent cruelty-free moving forward.
On October 9, 2018, PETA published a blog article announcing that Dove has earned their “Cruelty-Free Stamp of Approval.” They explain, “Unilever is taking a stance on products tested on animals, and consumers will approve. First, Dove—one of the most widely recognized and conveniently available personal care product brands in the world—has banned all tests on animals anywhere in the world and has just been added to PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies cruelty-free list!”
Starting in 2019, the Dove products will also have PETA’s cruelty-free bunny logo on all their packaging.
PETA hopes that Unilever’s efforts will inspire other companies and reminds the public, “Always make sure that the products you buy are from the more than 3,500 cruelty-free companies that are included in PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies searchable global database of companies that don’t test on animals.”

Have been sending my husky since young to AWVC for vaccination, check-up, blood tests, spay surgery. Love their patience, caring hearts and low stress handling attittude towards the dogs. Dr Brandon and his team never fail to slowly explain and address to my 101 questions each time and I am really grateful to each and every one of them for watching over my girl. Really nice to also see that they love what they are doing! Bravo job and keep it up, guys!
Very warm welcome and treatment from the staff in the clinic. Friendly staff and they definitely know what they are doing.
Would like to take this chance not just to recommend Animal World Vet Clinic, but also to thank them for their professionalism and initiative to assist us in our pet Snowie’s relocation to Australia. Australia is a very strict country in terms of importing of livestock and pets into their country, hence timelines as well as requirements must be fully met. As we did not engage a pet relocator, we handled all by ourselves. Without the great assistance by Dr. Elango, Dr. Brandon, the assistants and frontdesk staff, things would not have gone this smooth. They have gone beyond their scope of work to ensure Snowie’s able to relocate to Australia successfully and without complications. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU! ◡̈ Blessings, The HOs Alvin, Jessica & Snowie P.S. These are photos of Snowie being collected after her 10 days of quarantine at the centre in Melbourne, and exploring her new home in Perth! Yes, she had to take 2 flights to get to Perth.
The team at so. Dedicated, love their patient pooches cats and more.. They treat carers with so much understanding and flexibility and advice. Dr BRANDON has great humour and puts patient and carer at ease.. They are there to help their patients and carers and this shows, in. Every word and action. Wish you all a wonderful break over the December Christmas time holidays. Recharge and refuel and enjoy your time happy new year too 2019, much health happiness and fulfilment and success for. You all .. Thanks from Lauren and Ginger Spice

Emily had her very first dental at the clinic today. Dr Brandon and the staff were wonderful with her. They even sent us 'before' and 'after' photos of her teeth. Overall, everyone at the clinic is very professional and caring and make us feel very at home there. Emily loves going there - which is rare, given that animals do not usually like clinics. Thanks for taking such great care of Emily!

The love of my life, Debbie, is 15 this year. Few years ago I brought her here with existing congenital heart issues, collapsing trachea, and persistent wheezing + hacking cough. Her condition is now well under control, thanks to Sunny's kind advices and help, and Dr. Brandon's dedication even though I can be an extremely stubborn owner. :p This place is truly second to none for Debbie & me.
Everyone was absolutely wonderful, the care and concern they show to Nuggets (my 16 year old dog) is remarkable. Never have I ever experienced such loving treatment in other vet clinics, one even didn't do a full examination on him and persuaded me to put him down. Animal world even gave me a follow up call the next day to check on nugget's progress. Truly a blessing that I discovered this clinic
Unpleasant experience with the staff Sunny with poor attitude. She sweep us off by saying "yes, our doctor signature worth $50 and if you're unhappy, u can always leave it and find other vet" and threw the paper on the table when all we wanted was to have a better understanding of what we are paying for. Nevertheless, Dr Brandon was caring on the other hand.
Went with a seizuring dog. Love the superb care and advise given by the senior vet. He was humorous and caring. Definitely does decision in the best interest of pet. Definitely will return again.

Very caring staff, thank you for helping the furries!
They did a great job cleaning the teeth for my SS. Very nice staff and caring doctor!
Brought Doggy to AWVC while I was in the area looking for another clinic. Dr Sara did a very thorough examination for him and explained to us in detail what doggy's condition was. On surgery day, Dr Brandon and his team spared no effort in making sure Doggy's surgery was done properly and professionally. The nurses even kept me up to date on his progress while he was recovering for the night in the hospital. Thank you so much for your team's passion and dedication in what you do. Special thanks to Dr Sara for checking out and examining doggy to give a proper diagnose.
Excellent and professional service even my playful guinea pig could stay still and happy there with their care!!!
Excellent service from all the staff :)
My dog was having some problems with his hind leg for weeks. I have visited other Vet but problem not solved. I was feeling vexed till I met Dr Brandon. He is very experience and with his magical touch, my dog is jumping high and low again! Thank you so much.
