Animal testing is unfortunately necessary to determine if certain medicines and other treatments are safe for human use. As such, it pretty much has to continue. However, it should always be carried out responsibly, and steps should be taken to minimize the suffering of the animals involved. For example, if tests on a cell culture or on a dead animal will suffice, then a live animal should not be subjected to the experimentation simply because it might be more convenient.
We should experiment on animals. However, experimenting on animals should be taken seriously and only done when necessary. Because certain ,mammals brains and bodies closely reflect humans, experimenting on animals can help create new treatments and even potentially cure some diseases. In these situations where the potential gains are greater than the loss, we should experiment on animals.
We are more powerful so we will do whatever we want and its the need of the hour because we cannot do it with humans so animals and the other advantage is we can do their breeding and produce a lot more to fill the debth and of course we are strong
We should experiment on animals because otherwise, Scientists would experiment on humans and the experiments might fail which might result in death. If we didn't test on animal, We might get diseases and then die because we wouldn't have the medicine to cure it because either it won't work or we died from it. It would be better if animals die than have the human population die. Especially if scientists use a mouse, Mice repopulate pretty quickly and they share around 95% of our genes which is very convenient. Also, We need animals to make sure some medicines are safe to use on humans. Animals can also get the sicknesses we get like cancer so we might be doing them a favor and getting rid of their sickness. In the end if we don't use animals to experiment on, Scientists might instead use little children who have not yet seen the world. They might even take someone from your family. Would you rather them take a human or an animal as small as a mouse.
We should experiment on animals. If we didn't kids wouldn't know about animals and major diseases would be deadly if we wouldn't have animals to test our medicines on. If we didn't use animals we could all be dead or all be exposed to deadly diseases. Think of this, would you rather be dead or exposed to deadly diseases or MAYBE just maybe kill a little animal like a mouse. It isn't like we are testing this on bald eagles and all that illegal stuff, no just a little mouse. So what do you think die from diseases or just maybe kill a mouse?

I know that these animal go through pain but lab scientist try their very best to cause as little pain as possible. There minimum pain is used to help make treatments and cures across the world. For Ex: cancer, polio and much more most useful vaccines are made through this testing.
Animals are a tool, unfortunately. We use the animals in order to learn more about them, and see if this drug works or not. Some of this testing is for other animals as well, it inst just for humans, its for animals too, we test to find cures for their diseases just like ours .
Well they do have a happy life before and scientists try their best not to hurt them. Besides, if they do die it might save millions - you would give your life to save everyone else, so why cant they? In conclusion we should definitely experiment on them. Its their life or ours.
We have a life too. Our knowledge of medicine and science is important to treat diseases. If it didn't use animals to experiment we might have not found treatments. I counter-argue SophieC with unreliable because whats more expensive and possible: Getting a human to risk life or getting and animal to risk life? These tests could also be helpful to the animal AND humans. You must look at both sides.
Why are we even asking this question? Here are three reasons we shouldn't experiment on animals.
1.They can feel pain too.
Ever wonder why a dog yelps if you pull his or her hair? This is Obvious it HURTS. Some experiments can be very painful.
2. Medicines and things aren't gong to have the same effect on us as they do on animals. There are a good many things that say not to be used on pet but we can use them.
3. Animals have a sense of fear.Most dogs are scared of something and a big thing is needles. How many needles are used for experimenting.. ALOT
You can choose if you want to be studied for a new cure, so why can't animals do it too? We force animals to be experimented for our own selfish benefits not theirs. Many people say,"animals are here for humans to use. If we have to sacrifice 100,000 animals in the hope of benefiting one child, it's worth it." Well if experimenting on one intellectually-disabled person could benefit 1,000 children, would we do it?
Animal testing leads to the suffering and death of millions of animals around the world per year. In 1981 NIH funding studying neurological trauma decided to sever monkeys nerves as an experiment. This lead to severe brain damage or in worse cases death. Don't let your furry friends die like this. This is why I say "no!"
its true that there are human subjects to be tested on. they know the risks of the testing. those human subjects know that it might go wrong or have bad side effects. those people rather be tested on, than have animals be tested on and probably killed by the experiment.
No I do not think we should experiment on animals. I know that in the past and present probably, many medical breakthroughs have been because of testing on animals. But today, I think there are enough human test subjects that would easily volunteer to be tested on. Animals do not have a say in it. One exception to animal testing would be if there is no harm to animal (watching their behaviors, etc).
Humans only care about themselves, humans are literally the definition of a virus, humans have no compassion for those who are not their own species, if only we could possibly just use death row people, we don't care about them either, right? And anyways if we are so smart why don't we just use our brains to know if its safe, and lets not forget that if we test on a goat of some thing, here my answer, HUMANS ARE NOT GOATS, so what makes you think testing on something that isn't human is going to validate its safety, many animals are not like us at all.
We will die if we don’t test on animals and if we start testing new medicine on humans humans will suffer and possibly die. This isn’t good but if we test on animals more humans will stay alive. We are trying to save humans not risk their lives. Save humans
Animals have feelings but they cant express them like humans can we have much more hospitals than vets we also have a much lower amount of medication for animals if they have a bad reaction to the experiment, so why don't we experiment on humans we most probably have medication to fight a product that has had a bad reaction to the human.
Just because we are capable of taking other animals, and you are one, if the animals were capable, I am sure that they would take you, put you into a cage and test your hair for something they don't need so their precious hair doesn't get burned off, or turn white. After what we did to them, they would most definitely put us in cages so they could look at you and laugh as you got shot in the face with pee. They would send you to a place with no air and far away where you came from without your permission
F if matters so much to humans, why don't we experiment on humans? Humans only care about themselves, humans are literally the definition of a virus, humans have no compassion for those who are not their own species, if only we could possibly just use death row people, we don't care about them either, right? And anyways if we are so smart why don't we just use our brains to know if its safe, and lets not forget that if we test on a goat of some thing, here my answer, HUMANS ARE NOT GOATS, so what makes you think testing on something that isn't human is going to validate its safety, many animals are not like us at all.
