This cannot go on anymore. It makes me furious to think of the cats' suffering, the whlo procedure was pure torture. Why cannot they use anatomical replicas or simulators or something, but all testing with animals have to stop asap. No wonder I call my self an animal activist...

This would "NEVER HAPPEN TO A HUMAN" If all of this testing is for saving humans an to make human life better then all of the testing should be done "ON HUMANS AN ONLY ON HUMANS" not cats or kittens dogs or puppy's they feel pain just as we do they show fear just as we do they show sadness just as we do an like in your bible "DO ON TO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE OTHERS TO DO ON TO YOU" an this goo's for all life not just human life. =^..^=

La science devrait mettre dau point des cobayes de plastique ou d'une autre matière qui permettraient aux futurs médecins de faire leur pratique sans faire souffrir qui que ce soit. Il faut en venir à cette alternative. Les animaux n'ont pas à payer de leur vie pour permettre à la vie d'évoluer.

Many say "vivisection no longer exists." Or do not know what they are talking about, or are in bad faith. "Vivisection" is not only dissect the frog alive, or the atrocious past experiments in which dogs were tied with straps to a table and then dissected.

Today vivisection is something else. Much worse. It 's called "animal testing" or "in vivo research", but it remains, according to the DEFINITION of the dictionary, "vivisection". The extent to which "any kind of experimentation carried out on laboratory animals to induce alterations in anatomical or functional, such as exposure to radiation, the injection of chemicals, gas, etc.." [Dictionary De Mauro, ed. Pearson].

And 'why millions of animals every year in the world suffer in laboratories: poisoning with chemicals, drugs and cosmetics including, induction of diseases of all kinds (cancer, multiple sclerosis, various imitations of AIDS, cardiovascular disease, etc.. ), brain experiments, experiments on pain, and much more.

And all this, without any necessity, not only that, but to no purpose. The vivisectors ask "Would you rather save a mouse or a child?", To hit the emotions of the people who do not know what animal testing and how useless. But vivisection, kill the rat and a guinea pig makes you and your son, this is the reality of the facts.

Couldn't watch the video, can't handle it, but truly hope those senseless people who call themselves scientists use their brain for once and revert to using something infant like rather than torturing these poor, innocent, cats that have done NOTHING to harm them. Hope some of these "scientists" get to experience similar physical pain sometime in their miserable life.

I do not watch these videos as I cannot see the suffering of living creatures while unable to stop it.

Animals are sentient beings and they are unable to give their consent to this. It is therefore utterly wrong on every count to subject cats to this torture. Completely unnecessary too, as there are modern, superior methods of teaching these "skills" to future medics.
