Experimentation: Experimentation

Dogs Trust supports efforts by other specialist agencies to find alternative means of developing and testing pharmaceuticals.

We are opposed to the use of dogs as experimental animals unless the experiments are of benefit to dogs. Wherever possible experiments should be pain free and not result in the euthanasia of the dog for post-mortem examination. We reluctantly accept that the use of dogs is currently inevitable in the production of dog vaccines.
