Animal Experimentation

August 8, 2008 4:24pm CST
What is your views on animal experimentation? This is a very close subject to me as I own two dogs and one cat and absolutely love (most) animals. My view is that animals should be experimentated on, but only in the least. I've heard things that animal labs are just killing animals off until they get it right. It seems they're not studying enough about what they're doing to make sure when they do it, it's the most effective way. If they could stop that and when they do experiment, make it effective every time, then I'm alright with that. What are your views?

It's alright as long as they wouldn't experiment animals for money but to know a lot more about animals and to help other people.

I think that as long as it is only done for medical puposes (as opposed to make-up and household items) and the animals are looked after and cared for then it's the best option avaliable to us at the moment. Which is a shame, because animals do not react the same way to medicines and chemicals in the same way as human beings.

i agree with your views. it pains me to say that experimentation is necessary... i wish it wasn't. we need to at least treat animals with the basic respect that you give all living things.

i am not against with experimenting animals just for the sake of knowledge that experimenters could idea on that to help also other people like doctors or any other professions that focus on discovering medicines to cure illnesses or by experimenting those animals to understand them most.. and also i am much agree on experimenting animals rather that humans. and also if no animals for experiment i think until now we don't have illness and never understand what this world going on..
