*** WARNING: Video contains material not suitable for sensitive viewers! ***

One would think that transplanting one dog's head onto another dog, and producing a living creature is something out of Science Fiction. Right? Wrong. It's something that was done in the mid-1900's by a Russian Scientist, Vladimir Demikhov.


"Chronicle about experiments of Vladimir Demikhov, a Soviet scientist who made the first transplantation of a dog's heart in 1952. The experiment, aimed at finding ways of replacing portions of the human body lost through injury or disease, was pronounced Russia's "most successful". In 1946 Demikhov replaced the whole heart-lungs complex of a dog without using the apparatus of artificial circulation of blood. In 1954 he conducted a revolutionary experiment, when created a two-headed dog by grafting a puppy's head to a full-grown pooch. Then scientists even observed the process of rejuvenation of the elder dog. Shown are the two dogs before the operation, Demikhov performing operations, the puppy's head lapping up water, demonstration of the dog on a scientists' conference..."


The video shows the operation, and then several dogs with two heads, drinking milk (both heads), walking around, and so on.

Again, take note that the video contains very graphical material.

The Video

Question is, what happened to the test results? Was it worth all the animal lives?

wow that is very strange, and by the looks of the quality of the video that was done quite a long time ago, so I wonder what kind of experiments they are doing nowadays??? scarey to think.

Did you see the other link about the dogs head?

Just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.I find this horrific to say the least.I do not believe all this was done to further modern medicine.It's just sick and twisted.

Maybe, but without things like this then we would be stuck in the stone age.

In my eyes this is a necessary evil, the human implications of this are phenomenal. Peoples who's bodies are beyond repair for example, could be transplanted onto a 'donor' body.

In order to progress a race, things like this need to happen.

If they are doing this then please send me back to the stone age, just kidding, but that was just sick and wrong. In the name of science and medicine, oh please, they did this for there own curiosity and agenda's. It is just discusting and what does putting two heads on some dogs prove. I do not even want to think about what scientists are doing in secret labratories all over the world, hidden. Sad, just sad. Scientist go to far sometimes..

Soviet propaganda pure and simple.
It appears to me that they grafted a puppy onto a mature dog, kinda like creating siamese twins in the lab.
Its not just a head transplant like they show in their cartoon drawing.

To use a term I have seen recently, it is 'TV Fakery'.

I don't disagree with you on this point but far worse things have been done 'in the name of medicine'.

Hundreds, probably thousands of animals die each week due to being blasted with chemicals or radiation. Why? So we can have a different brand of shampoo or another weapon to kill one another with.

I don't exactly agree that what these scientists did was right, it wasn't, but the research will and probably has, been invaluable.

I betcha the host dog is like, "Will someone please make this little runt quit humping me?!"

I don't see anything really special about it. The guest dog would have no control over any of the host dog's functions as they would have had no way to connect the spinal cords. And I doubt the guest dog lived for very long as it would have been quickly rejected by the host's immune system.

Ok, why do you think this research was invaluable? I think all we need for diseases and medical is already out there, in trees and plants. How does this type of experiment end up being beneficial? Most shampoos and products people use are toxic and should not be used. If a product does some damage to amimals, what do you think it does to humans? Human bodies are miraculous healers, we do not need science to prove this or do experiments to solve this. There is a cure for every disease and ailment out there already and it has been there for everyone to find. Laziness pure and simple. People do not want to know this, they want prescription and modern medicine. If you have a broken bone it can heal on its own, seen it done, without the aid of hospitals and modern medicine. Have you noticied that the hospitals are getting bigger and people have more medical issues, why do you think that is?

Imagine a car crash victim, their body destroyed, yet their head still in perfect condition. If they are still alive, then maybe their head could be transplanted onto a life machine or straight onto another body.

People do seem to be very lazy these days when it comes to medicine, but why shouldn't they be? True, a broken leg can heal itself, but it can heal in half the time with the help of modern medicine. This reliance isn't a good thing, because sooner or later it's all going to go down the pan. But why shouldn't we exploit it while it's there?

Hypochondriac's. Pure and simple, people see some horrible disease on the televisions and instantly think that every little pain, spasm or sweat is it. Pathetic, but that's society for you.

But back to the dogs, I can see why you think it's wrong, so can I. But I believe that for future generations, operations like this could be really helpful.

horrible!!!! and if it is to advance scientific research we should all be held responsible for humanities actions and have to be recarnated to experience ourselves having the same thing done to us!

In the name of scientific research!!! ... Humans try and be "God" not understand that all we need to do is look within for the answers.. we have cures for things already in plants etc... as a race we need to see how we are all going compleatly wrong and we have to start learning with every breath we breathe how to stop harming eachother and ourselves!

Zanzibar, maybe they do not want their head to be transplanted to another body. I know I would not and know many people who feel the same. If you get into an accident(i don't believe in accidents) that bad then maybe it is your time to go. People need to wake up. With research like this there will be no future generations. There can be no excuses.

I beg to differ. As a race we are only just starting to know what we're capable of, snatching someone away from death is the very ultimate thing that we can achieve. I know that I would want to live as long as I possibly could, even if it is wired to a machine.

Far worse atrocities have taken place to give us the things that we take for granted today.

Think of the all the different kinds of operations we can do on a human body. How did we get to where we are today? Trial and error, people died, animals died but in the end millions live.

This might sound wrong, but I value a single human life more than that of a thousand other species. Why? Because we need to look out for each other. In the end, we are the dominant species on this planet, will be for a long time. So I believe that the preservation of human life should be valued above all else, money, war or power for example.

I understand that I may have came across a bit heartless in this thread, but it's difficult to put into writing how I feel about this kind of thing.

I agree that we need to look out for each other and I don't think you came across heartless. I just think scientist's and people are researching the wrong things. They do have their own agenda most of the time and it usually is not to the benefit of mankind. I have never needed the services of so called modern medicine and never will.

As a dog lover I am absolutely mortified. Dogs are people too. Man thats fowl. I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight.......This is nearly as bad as the one with the two monkeys that have their heads swapped. I wont provide a link as it is truly graphic and I don't believe they should be available for public consumption.

Are you sure? There are some things out there that are only treatable through modern medicine. My father was snatched away from death by the work of modern medicine and I am grateful every single day because of it.

I am absolutly sure, and I have a friend that lost his father from a hospitals mistake. What things do you mean that are only treatable through modern medicine? I am curious. I am glad your father was saved and there are good people and doctors out there. Just not all of them.

Such things as having a hole appear in the wall of the heart, only modern medicine can repair that.

Many diseases can only be treated with modern medicine as well.

Yes, but you have to think how was the hole in the heat caused? What were the circumstances that led to the hole and was it there since birth? I disagree with most diseases can only be treated with modern medicine. In modern medicine I include prescription drugs and the doctors that prescribe them. The doctors that tell you that there is no other way than their way, or surgery. Surgery is not the answer to everyone's problems. I know some people have heart problems, but there is a solution to everything medical. The human body is not weak and just because the doctors tell you that something has no hope, do you automatically believe them? Do you research and find another way? Many people do and find the anwers they seek. The problem is people believe what most people tell them without getting the real facts. The facts that are there to find if we look hard enough, the modern doctor(most, not all) does not want you to know all the facts, same with drug companies and insurance companies. They are too powerful. They all work togeather so you will not know the truth, just be aware.
