Agree this is necessary to support advancements in science and hygiene. Use for cosmetics testing is cruelty in support of vanity. Also need to consider animal pain as a higher cost than it's considered now. More regulation should be in place to assess whether the benefit of an outcome merits the imposition of suffering through more extreme testing.
What else would we use? Humans? Testing medicine on animals gives the medical society proof on what will happen. Using humans would potentially kill them or hurt them severely. I need some more words so I am typing to get the word limit down. Yay, I'm done now. Thanks!
Sometimes when a drug is tested in animals, The anima, S get through testing perfectly, But then once it is cleared for human trial, The results can be catastrophic. Instead we should test on people who need it as a last ditch effort, Patients who are suffering, And this could save them, And if not, Well they were going to die soon, And at least they die knowing that they helped advance medical knowledge.
