Animal Health Concerns
1) When a facility staff member or student researcher finds a health problem, it should be recorded on the Health Report Form found in the magnetic file holder on the door of 165C. They then should place a blue sticker, also found in the file holder on the sick animal's cage label to indicate its status.
2) The facility supervisor will make rounds at least once a day and will respond to anything recorded on the Health Report . If he/she feels it necessary, he/she will try to contact the researcher by phone. If that fails, a memo will be sent to the researcher informing them of the problem.
3) The facility supervisor will then note on the Health Report what action has been taken up to that point. If the researcher has not responded by the following afternoon, it will be at the supervisor's discretion what to do with the animal, including euthanasia.
