Close MSD Animal Health Laboratories for Extreme Exploitation

MSD Animal Health carried out tests on very young animals in 2013, including puppies as young as 4 weeks and kittens as young as 8 weeks. Some of the animals, including rabbits, calves and kittens, were allowed to suffer the full extent of the symptoms of serious and even deadly diseases. Thousands of dogs and hundreds of cats are used in research every year in the UK. Yet, despite the widespread public concern about their use, because of the secrecy surrounding animal research very little is known about the suffering they are forced to endure. http://www.buav.org/article/1489/buav-investigation-reveals-shocking-killing-of-puppies-and-kittens-in-uk-laboratory

Our Best Friends don’t belong in laboratories. But these cats and dogs never experienced the love of a human family or the joys of playing outside. They never saw the sky, breathed fresh air or felt the grass beneath their feet. Born to die for the research industry, their lives were cruelly cut short at just a few weeks old.

Sadly it is too late for these individuals but please help the BUAV end the appalling killing of puppies, kittens and other animals born to die in UK laboratories. http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/msd-animal-health-stop-the-testing-and-killing-of-puppies-kittens-and-other-young-animals-born-to-die-in-a-uk-laboratory?

Dear UK Government


The MSD Animal Health website clearly states "MSD Animal Health is dedicated to preserving and improving the health, well-being and performance of animals" http://www.msd-animal-health.co.uk/company/company-overview.aspx


We the undersigned agree the MSD Animal Health Laboratories are in direct violation of Animal Care and have exploited them for too long. Nessecary action must be taken against them in light of the BUAV investigation dated 03/03/2014. http://www.buav.org/article/1489/buav-investigation-reveals-shocking-killing-of-puppies-and-kittens-in-uk-laboratory


We ask that the company be fined and funding from the UK agricultural technologies strategy, withdrawn. But more importantly, all animals remaining in these laboratories must be released to Animal Sanctuaries, Rescue Centers and / or, loving homes.


A-Z List of Animal Rescue Centres http://www.animalsaver.co.uk/rescue-centres.html


The Uk is a world leader in Human Rights, We must evolve to include Animal Rights and halt all scientific testing on Innocent animals. In the year 2014 we have outgrown the need for animal testing and these laws are outdated and unethical. More to the point, We the undersigned agree the testing on animals (on human behalf) is a cowardly act and must be stopped.


We Thank you for taking Immediate action.
