Of course I would never give Jilli chocolate. But they do give dogs things that are bad for them in laboritories. It is part of research.
Another example: My rat has cancer. I am told by the vet just to make her comfortable until it's time to let go.
They have been experimenting on rats for over 30 years to find cures for cancer. So if their is no cure for rats by testing rats how do they expect to find cures for humans by testing rats.
Would you really propose that we spend millions developing a cure for cancer in rats? Would a rat voluntarily take themselves to the vet when they start to experience symptoms? Would a rat have the insurance to pay for treatment? Would a rat even have the cognition to know that they needed to go to the vet?
The fact is that experimentation on rats have help to develop cures for cancer and numerous other diseases and disorders. And don't forget that an over population of rats has been responsible for the death of millions of human beings.
