The Numbers
Numbers in Perspective
Pain - The Percentages
Some Pain, No Anesthesia This is only the case
when anaesthesia (or other pain relief) would
have affected results e.g., when testing another
pain relief drug
Veterinary advances
Vaccines developed to protect pets, farm animals,
working animals and animals in the wild
  • Better living conditions for animals
  • Minimising pain wherever possible
  • Better training for animal technicians

  • In Vitro Testing
  • Computer Modelling
  • MRI Scanning
  • Micro dosing

  • Re-evaluating minimum numbers of animals for
    statistical significance
  • Methods allowing multiple procedures on
    single animals
  • Better designed experiments to reduce numbers
