Toxicity testing is where dogs are exposed to a chemical by skin, mouth or inhalation. One test is called Lethal Dose 50 (LD50). Large numbers of dogs are given the chemical and the test is complete when half of the dogs are dead.
Another testing method is complete when the dogs show signs of suffering. The beagles endure excruciating pain, convulsions, they lose their motor functions, and have uncontrollable seizures. They are still killed in the end.
