My views on animal testing are that the need to experiment on animals, and the justification for the suffering caused, should be more critically questioned. At the moment, due to existing laws, bio medical research has carte blanch and that is unacceptable.

Questions must be asked regarding how important is the problem being studied? - animals should not suffer so that society can have a 'pill for every ill', when the condition is trivial, self-inflicted, or avoidable with a little effort.

How likely is it that the research will succeed? - there is significant debate about the usefulness of information obtained from animal experiments, particularly for studying human diseases. The same applies to testing animal treatments on animals imo.
 
The advances in medicine due to testing on animals has been dramatic with positive outcomes, but there have also been disasters.

Surely we have learnt enough to now negate the use of testing on animals who are bred for the sole purpose of experimentation and cruel live experimentation at that - being cut open whilst alive without any anaesthetic, being force fed toxic substances and left to die in agony in the name of 'research'.

Allison, whether or not you're having a go or playing devils advocate is irrelevant. And just so you know that I would still hold the same views if I didn't own animals.

I'm not sure why you are lumping Claire and myself into your post, we share the same views on some issues but we also differ on many things, and you should ask that question of all pet owners, not just myself and Claire.

History can't be undone and in this instance, bio medical research, but it can be changed for the future whereby animals are treated humanely, without cruelty which they currently are.

As for Stuart Kerr's nasty, vicious post least said the better.
