Each year about five million dogs, cats, rabbits, rats, monkeys, and other animals die in lethal dose tests performed in the U.K and U.S. During a lethal dose test, the expiremental substance is forced into the animals throats, or is pumped into their stomachs by a tube, sometimes causing death by stomach rupture or from the sheer bulk of the chemical dosage. Substances are mixed in lab chows, injected under the skin, into a vein, or into the lining of the abdomen, they are often applied to the eyes, rectum and vagina or forciblly inhaled through a gas mask. Expirementers observe the animal\'s reaction which include convulsions, laboured breathing, diarrhea, constipation, skin eruptions, abnormal posture, and bleeding from the eyes, nose or mouth. According to statistics, 50% of these animals will die in this expirement 2 to 3 weeks later.
The horrible fact about these incidents is that they are unneccesarry as there exists cheaper, efficient and more realistic results that can be used instead of animals.
