The Foundation for Biomedical Research recently released a great video which shows how animal research can help animals. The video briefly describes how treatment for bilateral cranial cruciate ligament tears was developed through animal research. It is also worth noting that the surgical processes, developed through animal research, currently are in use helping both humans and animals.
It finishes with a crucial comment for us to remember – “Animal Research saves animals too” – something that many animal rights activists would do well to remember next time they head to the vet with their pets.
