Overview

This bestseller has been an essential book for all those working with laboratory animals since it was first published in 1994. This fourth edition retains all the classic features that have made it a must-have reference including emphasis on best practice in order to improve animal welfare. The contents have been thoroughly updated and reorganised to make sure it is a really practical book for day-to-day use in the laboratory. The first section of the book covers principles applicable to all species, for example husbandry, handling and the education and training required by scientists and technical staff working with animals in the laboratory. Later chapters focus on specific species or groups of species.

New to this edition:
• Reflects changes in European legislation and their impact on national legislation
• Covers recommendations for the education and training of those carrying out animal experiments across Europe
• New chapters on ethical considerations and balancing animal welfare with science
• New information on environmental enrichment for laboratory animals
• Covers advancements in anaesthesia and analgesia and techniques
• Spiral bound for ease-of-use as a bench-top reference

This book is ideal for all personnel carrying out scientific procedures using animals, particularly during training and also for the new researcher. It will also be essential reading for study directors designing research programmes, animal technicians and veterinarians working with laboratory animal species.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Joseph D. Thulin
This book provides basic information on a wide variety of topics pertaining to the care and use of laboratory animals. This is the second edition; the first edition was published in 1994. It is intended to be a bench-top reference on all aspects of animal care and use, encouraging best practice and refinement of techniques. These objectives are worthy, although difficult to meet in a single handbook; however, the authors do a good job in covering the basics. This book may be a useful reference to anyone involved in the care and use of laboratory animals; still, the primary audience is those working under British animal protection and welfare laws. The primary audience appears to be biomedical researchers, technologists, and managers of laboratory animal facilities. The content also is suitable for veterinary students and residents in laboratory animal medicine. The authors cover a wide variety of topics in laboratory science and management. The book is particularly well-organized into three sections. Section One covers general information such as regulatory oversight, health and safety issues, and principles of surgery and perioperative care. The surgery sections are particularly good. Section Two provides species-specific information, and Section Three provides listings of useful equipment and references. The main weakness of this book is that much of the general information applies only to those working under the laws of the U.K. This is an easy-to-read handbook that covers basic but very useful information on a wide variety of topics pertaining to the care and use of animals in research. Biomedical researchers, technologists, and managers who lack advanced training inlaboratory animal science and medicine, as well as students and residents in laboratory animal medicine will find it a useful reference. Unfortunately, the sections on legislation and regulatory considerations only address British laws and regulations. Svendsen's Handbook of Laboratory Animal Science Volumes I and II (CRC Press, 1994) is a similar, more comprehensive work.

Describes all aspects of laboratory animal care and use with the goal of improving animal welfare through best practices and the refinement of techniques.
