Dog labs cancelled

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, October 1999:

Effective with the start of fall
classes, the University of Missouri at
Columbia is no longer holding dog dissection
exercises to teach medical students
about drug effects on the cardiovascular
system, and the University of
Medicine and Dentistry of New
Jersey/Robert Wood Johnson Medical
School at New Brunswick has ceased
using dogs––or any live animals––to
teach physiology.
Both universities said their
much-protested dog labs were abandoned
because using computers was
more cost-efficient.
The UMD-NJ campuses at
Newark and Stratford quit using live animals
to teach physiology some time ago,
said spokesperson Stuart Goldstein.
