Ad on Facebook looking for dogs to test a new chemical on

Be careful what you read and sign up for on Facebook.

We’re dog lovers, and were browsing Facebook and came across a post offering free flea treatment for your dog. We read on to see that it’s convenient that they come to your house, they offer up to $900 gift voucher.

Hmm, too good to be true or an evil plan? The reality is that this is asking people to sign their dogs up to be test subjects to a product that might not have been tested or tested properly. To be honest we’re disgusted that someone would even advertise this.

The Facebook user who posted this ad seemed to have only used Facebook a few times and had one post for Australian Flea Testing.

Please do not contact or sign up your beloved pets to this or any guinea pig test, it is not worth it.

The ad reads
