NIH Under Fire for $2 Million ‘Painful’ Experiments on Puppies

WFB: The National Institutes of Health is facing a congressional investigation for conducting a slate of “invasive, painful, and potentially deadly procedures” on puppies as young as six months old—all at taxpayers’ expense.

Sen. Joni Ernst (R., Iowa) is requesting the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is helmed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, disclose information about a $1.8 million taxpayer-funded trial that will force feed puppies experimental hay fever drugs, according to a copy of the probe obtained exclusively by the Washington Free Beacon.

The investigation was prompted by a Free Beacon report last month detailing how the NIH allocated $1,836,453 for a contractor to test an experimental hay fever drug on mice, rats, and dogs, including puppies as young as six months old. The most severe symptoms of hay fever, also known as seasonal allergies, are a runny nose and sneezing.

Ernst seeks to discern why the NIH chose to experiment on dogs and puppies when alternative methods, such as guinea pigs as test subjects, were available. The Food and Drug Administration, which oversees medicines like those used to treat allergies, “does not mandate that human drugs be studied in dogs”—making the experiments all the more questionable, according to Ernst.

NIH’s animal tests have become increasingly controversial in Congress and put the U.S. health agency under a microscope, particularly as questions linger about Fauci and NIH’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. NIH’s funding for labs in Russia and China also have generated concerns about the agency’s priorities. Ernst’s investigation comes amid a push by lawmakers to ban Fauci’s NIAID from conducting animal tests with taxpayer funds. more

  1. Oh no, not puppies!
    But Congress could GAF about mandating the Coof jab on America’s children under 6.

  2. Next, instead of aborting the fetus they’ll take it from the body to perform experiments on it. Wouldn’t put it past them. Ghouls.

  3. Maybe, maybe not. But what we really need is more assault guns in youths hands so they can kill more children.

  4. Everything is wrong when it’s OK to kill unborn children but if you inflict pain on puppy’s you’re considered to be a butcher and killer of innocent puppy’s. Don’t get me wrong, I love puppy’s but unborn innocent children are far more important than a dog. People are created in God’s image, dogs are our loyal companions only.

  5. As called on this site months ago: the animal testing causes more outrage than the Coof fiasco.

  6. …look, I like dogs too, but can we talk about the millions, potentially BILLIONS, of people he medically murdered instead?

  7. Nothing on the kids Fauxci killed with his AIDS experiments or the low iq of children he caused with his fake mask crap or the patents he owns for pharmaceuticals, etc.
    This guy is so dirty and so evil and all they can go after is the puppies?
    They’d better not stop there.

  8. Experimenting on puppies is childs play, but dog fighting, now that’s something totally different. Just ask Micheal Vick.

    Seeing the behavior of humans… I’m coming round to Old Nick’s politics. Apologize, away. If you must.

    We need cops with courage, and an armed presence in schools and other institutions.

    Hands off our guns, weirdo. Go play with yourself.
