Cosmetics testings will kind kill a lot of animals so yea, medical testing will be the best they can do lab tests for scientists but both are good depends on the animals lifestyle problems, if it's suitable for test subjects than ok..

But medical tests is not an issue, for the animals if they are comfortable with the test.

Animals have been used in testing of medicines and many other products since at least 304 Bce being a helpful tool in saving many human as well as animal?s lives. Therefore if we stopped using animals as medicinal test subjects we would not be able to stay on the forefront of fighting fatal Viruses and disease including AIDs epilepsy and Alzheimer?s. The foundation of biomedical research says ?Animal research has played a vital role in virtually every major medical advance of the last century?for both human and animal health. From antibiotics to blood transfusions, from dialysis to organ transplantation, from vaccinations to chemotherapy, bypass surgery and joint replacement, practically every present day protocol for the prevention, treatment, cure and control of disease, pain and suffering is based on knowledge attained through research with animals.? And according to other areas of their website they explain how devastating it would be to the human population if we did not use animal testing. But that?s not all some animals like chimpanzees and other primates share 99% of our DNA making them perfect test subjects because of their similarity to humans. Also in order to protect animals there are many laws in placing making inhuman treatment of animals illegal and grounds for in some states a 150 thousand dollar fine and or imprisonment for up to 10 years . But researchers don?t just treat animals humanely for their own sake they treat them humanely so that they can have consistency in their experiments. So overall animal testing is not inhumane or obscene and benefits many millions of people around the world with cures for fatal diseases.
