First and foremost, our morals are what we choose to believe are right and wrong. Animals get many diseases similar to ones that affect people. By studying these animals, medical researchers can learn what causes diseases and how to prevent, treat, or cure them.

Nearly every major medical breakthrough in the last 100 years has been achieved by research with animals. Secondly the findings in animal experiments help both humans and animals.

Without animal research, millions of dogs, cats, birds, and farm animals would be dead from more than 200 diseases, including anthrax, distemper, rabies, feline leukemia, and canine parvo virus, according to Americans for Medical Progress (AMP), a nonprofit group that supports the responsible and humane use of animals in biomedical research.
