Veterinary Recommendations

These recommendations are made when an animal needs to receive treatments or have medical procedures that are not listed on the animal use protocol and are not being administered directly by the ULAM veterinary staff as treatment for a clinical issue. These recommendations are specifically intended to address an animal's well-being and are not intended for experimental design manipulations unrelated to animal welfare.

Veterinary recommendations are most commonly requested when unexpected or undesired outcomes are occurring on already approved animal use protocols. Veterinary recommendations do not replace amendments to animal use protocols. Veterinary recommendations become a part of an animal's permanent medical record.
