Animal Care and Veterinary Services

Ad Hoc PAM Visits

In all research projects, complications can arise that may affect the welfare of the animals involved in the research project. When this happens, the research staff, facility staff, and/or other members of the research community will alert the PAM Office of the complication, and the PAM Office will then send a Veterinarian to help resolve the issue at hand. After meeting with the research staff, the Vet may require additional training or a Protocol Modification as follow-up to the issue. Once it is resolved, the matter is reported to the AUS at the AUS monthly meeting.
