What Animals Want

Larry Carbone

Oxford University Press

Claiming a billion-dollar price tag for compliance, the biomedical research community reacted forcefully to two new provisions of the 1985 Animal Welfare Act amendment calling for exercise programs for dogs and for maintenance of the psychological well-being of primates. This chapter reviews this history, including a look at the scientific studies of dog exercise that were deployed to allay expensive exercise regulations, as veterinarian-scientists fought an uphill battle in convincing the USDA that despite what “everyone knows” about dogs, they neither need nor choose more exercise than what they can get living alone in a small cage.
