Our recent “Broken Bureaucracy” investigative report exposed how century-old FDA red tape is still forcing drugmakers to poison puppies when they’d prefer to use more effective and cost-efficient alternatives.

Fortunately, it landed on the radar of lawmakers who have the power to enact the changes we need to see to cut FDA red tape that hurts puppies, patients and profits. We’re already seeing important progress.

It also got the FDA’s attention, and they brazenly told the media:

The FDA does not mandate that human drugs be studied in dogs.”

 

OK, well, you be the judge. Here are some of the FDA’s own guidance documents for drug makers that recommend testing on dogs specifically:

And you better believe that drug makers that want products approved are following the FDA’s lead. See for yourself in these drug applications submitted to the FDA:

Some companies have even been punished by the FDA for NOT testing on dogs.

In the meantime, you can take action! Join the supermajority of taxpayers who want to #CutFDARedTape by urging your Members of Congress to cosponsor the AARF Act to ensure drug makers can use alternatives to dog tests!
