ANIM 1000

This is a lecture/laboratory course. The lecture component will introduce the student to the laws and regulations governing animal care, animal use, basic principles of animal health monitoring and disinfection of animal housing. Self-study materials will supplement this component of the course. The laboratory component will emphasize the handling, restraining and injection techniques of the laboratory rat and mouse. Basic rabbit handling will be covered. Included in this course is an introduction to the use of anesthetics and euthanasia. This material will be reinforced by a requirement to rotate through the college animal colony in a work-study capacity.
