Canine testing at the VA is inhumane and unnecessary given the range of alternatives that now exist. There’s no good reason for the VA to continue subjecting dogs to cruel and hurtful testing when there are humane alternatives to this outdated practice.
Animal testing has been key to virtually every medical advance of the past century. Canine testing specifically remains necessary for developing life-saving drugs and treatments that could help disabled and injured veterans live better, longer lives after sacrificing for their country.
