What Animals Want

Larry Carbone

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks to a future when animal research ends. It asks how our children's children will judge what we did in our laboratories. Until they are all finally liberated, what goals should we have for the animals? More than ever, laboratory animal medicine is becoming mouse medicine, with the welfare challenge for veterinarians of treating hordes of tiny near-identical subjects as individual, sensitive patients with lives of their own. One must believe that we can succeed in this to justify the work done in animal laboratories.
