A goat is deliberately shot and then treated by military personnel, a healthy dog is operated on and killed by veterinary students—inhumane procedures exactly like these are routinely carried out in the name of medical training. Public pressure is mounting to replace these outdated procedures with humane alternatives.

Every year, thousands of healthy dogs, cats, pigs, goats and other animals are intentionally injured or cut open and then killed by the U.S. military and medical and veterinary schools. Even some medical device companies operate on and later kill animals during shameless marketing demonstrations.

These archaic medical training procedures are carried out despite the existence of sophisticated humane alternatives, such as TraumaMan System®, a life-like mannequin used to practice first-aid and surgery. The development of technologies like these has made it increasingly difficult for institutions to defend the harming and killing of live animals for medical training.
