Stop Dalhousie University from murdering dogs and puppies.

Every year many animals are being dissected at Dalhousie University.

Kittens have had their eyes sewn shut at Dalhousie. Dogs, cats, rabbits, mice and rats are routinely stabbed with needles, tubes forced down their mouths, hearts and brains dissected while still alive.

This is unnecessary and cruel. Let's stop the animal testing forever.

In Great Britain, it's against the law for medical (and veterinary) students to practice surgery on animals, and British physicians are just as competent as those educated elsewhere.

Here is an article from Jan 2007 (Donald E. Mitchell from Department of Psychology, Dalhousie University) where  the kittens have a craniotomy, titanium chamber cemented to their skulls and the exposed brain was illuminated with green light. After the study, the kittens were killed via an i.v. overdose of barbiturate.

John Sullivan and the Division of Cardiovascular Surgery at Dalhousie and the QEII Hospital still use dogs (denervated hearts) as well as nitric oxide rabbits.

Animal care facilities at Dalhousie University include large animal holding and experimental laboratories at the Tupper Building (10,000 square feet), and at the IWK Grace Health Centre (4,000 square feet).
