GENERAL
Asked by Micheal

Are the animals used in dissections, (piglets, cats, frogs, etc) dead before the dissection or are they killed?

It depends but usually they are killed I believe. To look at an animal properly you want one that is healthy, if something has died if natural causes it likely won’t look perfect inside so it is better to take healthy animals and kill them, like they do in the meat industry
