February 2016 - In an effort to maintain compliance with federal, state, and university rules and regulations for animal welfare, the Animal Care & Use Program will be updating the way animal health and wellbeing concerns are reported and recorded. Starting February 1, 2016 when a health concern is noted by the animal resource center you will receive an e-mail with an attached PDF form (Animal Health Report). This report will be completed by either the Animal Resource Center (ARC) Director, Supervisor, or Technician. The completed report will be sent to the PI and/or PIs staff responsible for the animal and a copy will be sent to the consulting veterinarian. The consulting veterinarian will have an opportunity to review and/or add comments and notes to the form. The PI and/or PIs staff will also have the opportunity to review, and in most cases, add comments and notes before sending the report back to the ARC staff member that completed it. The completed report with the PI and/or PIs staff comments will then be kept on file in the ARC office. The ARC will continue to utilize the "health check" cards that are placed on the cages. The added form will allow for us to better communicate and monitor the animals that need our attention.
