It depends on what kind of experiments you're talking about.
Animal behavior experiments are generally done in order to understand why they behave the way they do, and by extension to help us understand why humans behave the way they do.
Drug trials are done on animals first in order to see if the treatment is a) effective and b) safe. Each species has its own metabolic quirks, so a treatment that is safe and effective in animals MAY not be so in humans, but it's a way to identify treatments that are at least POTENTIALLY safe and effective for humans.
Finally, some testing is done for teaching/training purposes. A school may have students experiment on, say, rats even though the expected results are known, in order to train the students how to perform experiments in which the results are NOT known.
Plus rats, mice, dogs,primates and cats all get used for expiriments. You may think-ew mice, rats, who cares about them? BUT THEY HAVE A LIFE TO YOU KNOW AND THEY WANT TO LIVE IT!
Animals are tested for experiments because humans want to see if the experiments are safe to use on humans so they test on the animals which most of the time the animal dies!
Mice and rats.
No and yes. no because it's bad for animals and yes because humans could die or get sick from the experiments
Mice and rats are the most used animals in experiments.
humans make your chose
For brain or drugs experiments, rats are frequently used but dogs and monkey are also used a lot.
Because Guinea pigs are the most popular animal used in experiments.They have some charactes related to humans like rats.They are also easily available.So, a Guinea pig is the common term used for animals in genetic experiments.'Rats' are also used in experiments.

because they are born to be free . as we desereve to be free , then they should too.
Animals are used because scientists want to spare humans. Most animals have similar genes to humans so animals give the same reaction humans would if the experiments were being tested on the humans. Using animals is a way to help keep the human population up and still be able to find cures for those everyday diseases.
No animals are "Tortured" during experiments. The only thing close to being torture on an animal during experiments today is me answering this question.
Many animals are used for animal experiments. These animals are mice, rats, monkey's, dogs, bunnies, birds, fish, frogs, cats, and even hamsters. These animals do not deserve to be treated like this. help stop this by going to google.com and searching up animal experimenting protest. you can donate money to the company, and even volunteer to help.
There are many companys test their experiments on animals,so its not possible to know the exact number of them...
Animal activists would disagree that it is ethical to use animals in medical experiments. Those who are against using animals for the purpose of medical experiments typically feel very strongly about this cause.
According to the Vivisection Information Network, "Estimates exist that 100 million animals are used wordwide, which is about 274,000 per day, or three every second. However, this estimate is for vertebrates only."According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, in the United States in 2010, 1.28 million animals were used in experiments (excluding rats, mice, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and agricultural animals used in agricultural experiments), plus an estimated 100 million mice and rats. In Canada in 2009, 3.38 million animals were used in experiments. Of those, 145,632 animals were subjected to â€œsevere pain near, at, or above the pain tolerance threshold of unanesthetized conscious animals.â€ In the United Kingdom in 2012, there were 4.11 million experiments on animals, and 2.95 million of those were without anesthesia.
It is unreligeous to experiment on animals.
Because it can cause permanent brain damage, and because it is sick and wrong!
Yes, they are used in experiments in some places :)
They torture them.
Unfortunately they are.
Yes it did. This happens to be a controversial subject about the ethical use of their collected information, but the information is used. Nazi experiments ranged from bone, tissue and muscle transplants to cutting wounds and putting mustard gas in to freezing experiments to high altitude experiments.
Animal experiments are widely used to develop new medicines and to test the safety of other products. Many of these experiments cause pain to the animals involved or reduce their quality of life in other ways. If it is morally wrong to cause animals to suffer then experimenting on animals produces serious moral problems. Animal experimenters are very aware of this ethical problem and acknowledge that experiments should be made as humane as possible. They also agree that it's wrong to use animals if alternative testing methods would produce equally valid results.
That really depends on who you are. Here is a compare and contrast: Animals SHOUDNT: Animals shouldn't be used to conduct such experiments because it endangers THEIR lives and could hurt them in anyway. Animal SHOULD: Animals, on the other hand, should be tested to make sure the chemical is safe for humans. I mean, i doubt there are many humans who will volunteer to be tested. The scientists need alot of animals for tests to try new chemicals .
