Animal Medical Recordkeeping

Adequate Medical Records: Adequate animal care includes adequate animal medical record keeping. The Principle Investigator and associated research staff serve as the primary attending clinicians of all animals housed on behalf of an IACUC-approved protocol. As such, research staff are responsible for providing adequate clinical oversight, and post-operative or post-procedural care of the animals, for anticipating and alleviating animal pain or discomfort whenever possible, and for maintaining complete animal medical records, with entries made in sufficient detail and at intervals specified in IACUC Principles XIX.
