The Physicians Committee announced today that the Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine has ended the practice of performing invasive surgeries on live dogs before killing them. The national nonprofit is now asking Auburn University to also replace “terminal” training exercises in its veterinary program.

Alabama members of the Physicians Committee brought the practice to the organization’s attention in 2018, and it was later confirmed by an anonymous Tuskegee veterinary graduate. At the time, healthy dogs from the Russell County-Phenix City Animal Shelter were used to practice surgical procedures, including eye removal, limb amputations, and foreign body removal.
