Animal experimentation involves more than 27 different species including: macaque monkeys, squirrel monkeys, rats, mice, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, and cats

Domestic Ferrets are used in many broad areas of research and have been since the early 1900's to study the pathogenesis and treatment in a variety of human disease as animal models in biomedical research, including studies of cardiovascular disease, nutrition, respiratory diseases (such as SARS and human influenza), airway physiology, cystic fibrosis and gastrointestinal disease (such as peptic ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori). Ferrets share many anatomical, metabolic and physiologic features with humans which has promoted their use as an animal model.

Additionally, lab tests are commonly performed on mice. In fact, breeders can create special varieties of mice called "knockout mice." The term knockout refers to the fact that these mice are genetically modified so that particular gene expressions are repressed, or turned-off. There are many varieties of knockout mice available depending on what is being investigated. These mice are very useful in the biomedical field. By using knockout mice, researchers are able to learn about the specific effects of certain genes. Drug therapies can also be tested on these mice.

Advice from other contributors:

* Mostly small animals are used in animal testing rats and mice are popular but also cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and more.

* Rats, mice, rabbits, monkeys, stray dogs and cats.

* Quite a few animals get tested on but guinea pigs are the most common animals get tested on

* All types of animals: Cats, Dogs, Hamsters, Rats, Mice, Gerbils, Monkeys, gorillas, wild animals

* Dogs, like beagles; cats, rabbits, rats, mice, a variety of monkeys; guinea pigs, gerbils, fish, frogs, baboons, chimpanzees and fruit flies
