A new analysis of documents obtained by White Coat Waste Project detailing painful taxpayer-funded dog experiments at the McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) has concluded that “mostly all of the canines involved in the project are set to die.”
Richmond ABC affiliate WRIC reports, “We found four projects, using 118 dogs, some as young as six months old. Most of the dogs are euthanized, and in some cases, their hearts were harvested.”
A veterinarian who was asked to provide an expert opinion on the approved applications for McGuire VAMC’s painful dog experiments told WRIC:
Our tax dollars are being spent on studies that are potentially inhumane and not necessary
Unfortunately, the nature of the experiments is that they are designed to lead to suffering for these dogs….Absolutely there is suffering involved
