Why do veterinarians, who are supposed to take care of sick animals, work with researchers who do experiments on them?
Veterinarians realize that the results of animal research improve the health of animals as well as humans. Many advances in veterinary medicine are the direct result of animal research; some research has even helped save certain species from extinction. Veterinarians also act as advocates for research animals, making sure they are healthy and comfortable.
