Andre Menache on the use of beagles in experiments | Born in Harlan to die in a laboratory

Please read the title again. As a veterinary surgeon, I find this title very strange. Why on earth are Beagle dogs being used to see what pharmaceutical drugs do to people? I would certainly never use a parrot to test drugs for horses, so why use dogs (or any other animal) to test human drugs? The short answer is that the law requires it.
