Dog Dental Experiments at Georgia University Cause Outcry

the daily dish More on PawNation: Causes, Dogs, Health

Georgia Regents University in Augusta, Ga., has been performing dental experiments on dogs, and now the Humane Society of the United States is demanding that the experiments stop, according to WSB-TV in Atlanta.


The nature of the experiments, which are government-funded, was revealed in an undercover documentary posted online on Wednesday. The film shows the research facility where human dental implants are tested on dogs. The dogs, while sedated, have their teeth pulled and replaced with the implants.

"We consider these experiments with the dogs to be unnecessary and painful," said Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society of the United States. "I can't believe it's something that's actually happening."

But the school says the research is necessary to develop safe and effective dental procedures for humans. In a press release, the university also noted that their experiments abide by all state and federal laws regarding animal testing, and that the dogs do not suffer from the experiments.

Cruel. This article left out that the dogs are euthanized afterwards so they can cut samples of their gums out. Just sickening, cruel, and unnecessary.
