(SACRAMENTO) – Seeking to stop research laboratories from testing chemicals on dogs, Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager (D-Los Angeles) today introduced legislation to halt the practice. Advancements in technology have provided alternative methods to test the effects of chemicals, such as human cell-based tests, computer models and other approaches.
“Testing on dogs is unethical and unnecessary,” said Kamlager. “No animal deserves to suffer like this. We must press for change and use scientifically proven alternatives from the 21st century.”
