The VA has done these barbaric tests for decades with no discernible benefits in many years. It should stop hurting dogs and start helping veterans. Few members of the public are aware that the federal government uses taxpayer money to hurt puppies in painful and unnecessary lab experiments. At the Richmond Veterans Affairs Hospital, where most of the VA's dog testing takes place, puppies are given heart attacks by injecting latex into their arteries. The dogs are then put on treadmills to stress their compromised hearts, and they are ultimately killed and dissected. These and other cruel practices must end.
We've been leading the charge against this government-funded animal abuse. Our efforts have focused on the Department of Veterans Affairs, where hounds and beagles are subjected to deadly experiments. Though the department has conducted these barbaric tests for decades, the research has not resulted in any discernible benefits for veterans in many years.
