Veterinary Consultation & Assistance

The Animal Welfare Act mandates veterinary consultation for any procedure that may cause more than momentary pain or distress prior to approval of the animal use protocol.  The veterinary staff is also available for consultation on a variety of topics.  Examples of topics for which veterinary consultation can be advisable include:

  • Questions on anesthesia and euthanasia methods
  • Drug dosages
  • Questions on animal research techniques
  • Selection of animal models
