The ARC Policy on Survival Surgery in Mice, Rats, and Birds has recently been revised; the updated Policy is available at the Survival Surgery in Mice, Rats, and Birds web page.
Two changes have been made to the Policy regarding post-operative treatment cards:
- The Policy clarifies that post-op cards are to be used until treatment is discontinued or sutures/wound clips removed, whichever is longer.
- A new post-op card is provided.
Please contact the Office of Animal Research Oversight at 310-206-6308 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
