I meant to add in that I personally know the two people involved in this study, vet student Christopher McKinney and Dr. Luca Ferasin. I can assure you that these dogs will be treated with respect.
In this research project people bring in their own pets and leave with them afterward. The dogs run on a treadmill while hooked up to an EKG and the doctor takes a blood sample to test the levels of lactate build up after exercising.
