Dogs – The Essential Need for Animals in Medical Research
The close relationship between dogs and people may pre-date recorded history. One of the most significant results of our partnership with dogs has been their contribution to our understanding of disease, and how to prevent and cure it.
In fact, dogs and people get many of the same diseases from heart disease to cancer. What we can glean from studying dogs in medical and scientific research often yields treatments that help not only people, but also dogs themselves.
