On this topic today we are going to discuss on the importance of laboratory animal. laboratory animals is found in every standard laboratory and were they are found they are their for a specific purpose. we can remember that before any medicine could be used on human being it must be subjected to a laboratory investigation, the investigation involved laboratory animal, because the animals and human being has the same body system so for this reason, before drugs could be used or must be used by human being it must be subjected for experimentation in the laboratory and this experimentation are done by using laboratory animals such as rat, mouse, rabbit. that is the purpose of discussing small laboratory animal.
Mechanisms involving the use of laboratory animal
the basic aim of scientific studies involving animals is to achieve the understanding of life and to advance our knowledge of life processes.
Experimentation on some animals in vivo is compulsory for biomedical research diagnostic purpose and for testing biological preparation. Some of these experiment depend on physiological interaction of the organs in a living animal and this can not be duplicated vitro. When animals are used the comfort of the animal used should be the prime concern of the investigator.
