Clari - maybe some of the work being done on animals now will one day lead to improvements in the treatment of people who sustain injuries like yours ((hugs)) then, as long as the animal's distress is not too much or too prolonged, it will have been worthwhile.
I met up with one of my oldest friends (first boyfriend) at the weekend - he broke his neck on a bouncy castle when in his early 40s. With the aid of a lot of technology he has been able to continue to farm in a small and very different way, from his wheelchair, but is tragically disabled and endures a lot of pain and spasms and other health problems and needs a great deal of care from his wife and carers. If helping animals can lead to helping humans it will be wonderful for those suffering injuries in the future.
