There have been both for and against whether animals should be

used for research practises. Some of the strongest arguments

against using animals for research is that it is inhuman. Animals

feel pain just like people. Why should they be used as test

subjects? It is also worth remembering that the physiology of

animals is different from those of human beings. Also, it should be

noted that just as the medicine works on animals, there is no

guarantee it could work on humans.

On the contrary, many argue in favor of using animals for

research says its absolutely essential. They do not deny that it

causes pain to animals. However, they believe that it is necessary

for the greater good of mankind in the long term existence. Also,

they point out the various vaccines and its enormous success on

human beings today and because of these research practises it has

made life easy and saved many lives.

Yes, we can't overlook the pain that lab animals suffer from.

And I also believe that trying on animals before drug going into

clinic trial phase is the best and safest method. Researcher are

humans with feelings, they won't choose animals for test if there

is better alternatives. So I think it's necessary to ask the

professionals who work as researchers for the reason why animals

are essential in the research process. And I will recommend

professionals from @BOC Sciences , a biochemical provider for a

more careful answer.
