What Animals Want

Larry Carbone

Oxford University Press

Pain management might be seen as the expertise of veterinarians, but within the laboratories it is part of research methodology — the scientists' autonomous domain of animal use. This chapter describes how pain became the driving wedge that eroded the care/use jurisdictional divide between veterinarians and scientists and opened the door to greatly expanded regulation in the 1980s. Topics covered include the political history of pain, the Improved Standards for Laboratory Animals, two core beliefs fueling the drive of animal protectionists for stricter regulation, and a primer on animal pain.
