Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed the holidays.
The ARC will be announcing new and updated policies in the coming months that may impact you. We ask that you keep an eye on your email and visit the OARO News page frequently for updates. Past News items are available in the News Archive.
For those of you that use food/water restriction in your experiments, we encourage you to review the following ARC Policies:
As noted in both policies, special treatment cards must be placed on each cage indicating that the investigator’s laboratory will be responsible for feeding/watering animals when restriction/deprivation protocols are in use, and the duration (start and end dates) for this special schedule must be noted on the card. Special treatment cards may be obtained from DLAM – please see attached example.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
