It is also important to emphasize that to obtain reliable results, the health quality of the animal used as a model is fundamental, and thus, it is in the interest of the researcher to have healthy and well treated animals. THE IMPORTANCE AND CHALLENGES OF ANIMAL BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH The health quality of animals was quickly reflected in sick animals that could not be used for research, so immediate strides were made to ensure animal health in the research environment.

If people do not understand those connections, or do not understand why we cannot always turn to non-animal alternatives, then they may not appreciate why animal Laboratory animals are important tools in biomedical research to investigate such vital issues as the ontogeny and ageing of mammals, mechanisms of diseases and their prevention or treatment, or Almost 40 y ago the scientific community was taking actions to control environmental factors that contribute to variation in the responses of laboratory animals to scientific manipulation.

Laboratory animal diet was recognized as an important variable.
