#19: Animal Testing Part Four: Alternatives

Vegan Nugget #19: Animal Testing Part Four: Alternatives

since the last nugget on how animal testing kills humans, i’ve had several inquiries about what viable alternatives are. animal testing isn’t just dangerous for humans, completely ineffective in creating any scientifically viable results, and totally driven by greed, but it’s also not the only option.

alternatives to animal testing include sophisticated tests using human cells and tissues (also known as in vitro methods), advanced computer-modeling techniques (often referred to as in silico models), and studies with human volunteers.

these and other non-animal methods are not hindered by species differences that make applying animal test results to humans difficult or impossible, and they usually take less time and money to complete.

Vlogget: How to Sneak A Bulldog Into A 4 Star Hotel

Vlogget: How to Sneak A Bulldog Into A 4 Star Hotel

ever wondered if you could sneak a 50lb bulldog into a 4 star hotel?  well now you know!  this is the first vlogget covering the “Ooby Reunion Mission” trip from Iowa to Florida.

we had spent hours going from shady to shadier motels in st. louis trying to find a place to sleep for the night.  finally, around 11 at night, we find a decent hotel.  but alas, they are not pet friendly.

so my travel companion renee sweet-talks the check-in girl, who says we can bring our “small” dog in under a blanket thorugh the side door.

And here is the resulting madness.
