Petitioning MSD Animal Health Stop the testing and killing of puppies, kittens and other young animals BORN TO DIE in a UK laboratory A BUAV investigation has uncovered the shocking use of very young animals, including puppies and kittens by MSD Animal Health in the UK in experiments for animal vaccines. The animals were killed and their bodies cut up for examination.
During our 8 month investigation, 92 beagle puppies, 10 adult nursing female beagles, at least 15 kittens and an unknown number of rabbits, calves and chickens were killed by MSD Animal Health in one UK laboratory.
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. A number of rabbits had to be killed due to the severity of their suffering. Kittens were used in experiments that caused them to suffer weight loss, high temperatures and ulcers. Then at less than 6 months old, the kittens were killed, their bodies dissected and dumped in a bin as waste.
