lmao why we waste animal lives , why not instead of animals get humans to volunteer to be tested on? i mean, the testings are done for the betterment of humans,after all. so why the heck do we not just use humans?
Lucy Gallagher (7 days ago)
Yeah I guess it’s because it’s only the negative affects that are shown on social media, I definitely do understand why it’s such a tough situation though, because certainly anybody with any morals would not want to hurt animals
Foxi Ashire (7 days ago)
+Lucy Gallagher hm.. people really are looking at all the negative effects mostly nowadays. i wasnt told that.. thanks for telling me tho :)

Testing is done on humans too. Also the idea that all of the animals used for testing go through mental and physical pain is simply untrue. Many of the animals used in research laboratories have better lives than many household pets. They have better enrichment and mental stimulation, access to top veterinary care, a carefully planned diet and physical pain is reduced whenever possible and must be minimised by law. Most testing procedures are actually non invasive, so they cause minimal pain and are usually things such as blood sampling, which as you probably know from experience is not painful.

+Lucy Gallagher maybe so.. but considering how many of the animals seem to be mistreated or in mental or physical pain, id say the animals testing should not be only done on animals if some of the benefits are for humans too. gotta have equality after all.

Foxi Ashire Animal testing is not just done for the betterment of humans, it also benefits animals, our pets would not be able to receive the veterinary care that they do if we had not tested drugs and procedures on laboratory animals first. And I certainly would not say that the animals lives are wasted, they have saved thousands, if not millions of lives and continue to do so.

Yes but we kill far more than that for our consumption of meat, and meat doesn’t save human lives like animal testing does, we can live healthily on a vegetarian diet. Animal testing is for the greater good and benefits not only humans, but animals as well.

first thing ANIMALS HAVE DIFFERENT REACTION THAN HUMANS animals and humans are not the same im not suprised
Ava Kettridge (16 days ago)
I’m for animal testing because there is so many medical benefits for it and I love animals just as any other person but human lives are worth more than animals. Also who says animals are being harmed this isn’t animal cruelty this is animal testing is just like testing on people, they aren’t going to let a animal wander around while their testing them, they usually put them on anesthesia. However I do disagree with animal testing on cosmetics because that is just wasteful. edit: stop commenting i srsly don't care anymore!

Scientist have found that animal testing is not efficient in any way due to animals being completely different from us

+Benito Rugelio whatever i'm done with this convo, but i'm sorry for you.
Benito Rugelio (1 month ago)
+Ava Kettridge You are silly to think everyone thinks like you. I'm sorry I don't want kids or like them and rather having animals by my side. I'm sorry you feel this way. I see your point but I disagree. I rather choose an animal over any human being any day.
JammerrrJammm Jams (2 months ago)
Your point is reasonable, however animals are actually just important and us, the domesticated ones (dogs, cats) may not be but animals like fish, wolves, foxes, rabbits, and ect are since they are apart of the food chain. Of one goes down, we all do. Basically animals are one of the main reasons we are alive, without them humans wouldn’t exist.

If it's OK to experiment on humans, then why is not OK to test animals. People get experiment on all the time and they're fine.
JammerrrJammm Jams (2 months ago)
Because animals don’t work the same as humans..

That is so mean and that endangers animals life and what happens if all of the types of animals died we would have nobody to be your little companion and TESTING!!! Is wrong and you should know that and if you do not then 1. you are stupid and 2. you are not a real vet and if you do not know what that is then you are plain right STUPID .

bet you dont mind eating meat that kills millions of animals for the purpose of consumption but you hate them getting tested on to save lives a little hypocritical.
JammerrrJammm Jams (2 months ago)
1. A vet is someone who helps cure animals not test on them. 2. Though I can see your point, sometimes we need to test on animals. Not saying it is completely right, it still is helpful. 3. If all animals died not only would we have no companions, we would also all die as wel. And 4. Adding on to 3, its not like all animals are tested on, mainly rats,dogs, and cats. Animals like wolves,lions,and fish would be bad to test on since if they ended up going extinct we would too, so it hurts to say but its better to test on domesticated animals since they wont destroy the ecosystem if one species of domesticated (Ex: dogs) went extinct since they aren’t such an important animal. (This is from the things I know, please correct me if anything is wrong!)

Most ppl who bitch about animal testing probably wouldn't even be here today if animal testing wasn't a think. Also I love how ppl think it's wrong to test on animals then go on to say they should test on humans even tho humans are animals.
JammerrrJammm Jams (2 months ago)
Well you have a point, testing on humans wouldn’t be ok, but sometimes it is wrong to test on animals, like giving a dog cancer to find a cure, it be better to use something like a work to test it on than a dog. My point is that there are both pros and cons to animal testing! But i’m a bit more on the con side..

So what? Most of human society wouldn't be here if slavery never existed. Does that mean we shouldn't "bitch" about slavery?

humans can consent to it, animals can't...

Did you know that out of the top 25 drugs on the Foundation for Biomedical Research's website, 22 test on dogs? The alternatives generally proposed don't usually include testing on humans. I don't believe anyone would argue that, because it violates ethics. The ones I've seen argued are things like development of computer technology that mimics animal/human behavior/biological systems, cell cultures, etc. Just some food for thought. I was super pro-animal testing until I did a bit more research on it. I still don't believe we are at the point of using strictly alternatives for testing, but I think more time and money should be invested into getting animals out of research.
