This bestseller has been an essential book for all those workingwith laboratory animals since it was first published in 1994. This fourth edition retains all the classic features that have madeit a must-have reference including emphasis on best practice inorder to improve animal welfare. The contents have beenthoroughly updated and reorganised to make sure it is a reallypractical book for day-to-day use in the laboratory. Thefirst section of the book covers principles applicable to allspecies, for example husbandry, handling and the education andtraining required by scientists and technical staff working withanimals in the laboratory. Later chapters focus on specificspecies or groups of species. New to this edition: • Reflects changes in European legislation and theirimpact on national legislation • Covers recommendations for the education and trainingof those carrying out animal experiments across Europe • New chapters on ethical considerations and balancinganimal welfare with science • New information on environmental enrichment forlaboratory animals • Covers advancements in anaesthesia and analgesia andtechniques • Spiral bound for ease-of-use as a bench-topreference This book is ideal for all personnel carrying out scientificprocedures using animals, particularly during training and also forthe new researcher. It will also be essential reading forstudy directors designing research programmes, animal techniciansand veterinarians working with laboratory animal species.

Judge Your Practices Against This Benchmark Manual COST Action B-24 established four working groups to research and discuss issues relevant to laboratory animal science. These included the housing of animals, environmental needs, refinement of procedures, genetically modified animals, and cost-benefit analysis. Based on the groups’ findings, The COST Manual of Laboratory Animal Care and Use: Refinement, Reduction, and Research provides a consensual European view of best practices for individuals and institutions caring for and working with laboratory animals. What is COST? COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is an intergovernmental initiative that promotes coordination of nationally funded science and research at a European level. This book focuses on reduction and refinement strategies and includes insightful contributions from 44 experts drawn from various EU countries. Addressing only the most commonly used mammalian species—rats, mice, and rabbits—each chapter of the book follows a similar structure: Objectives outline the breadth of the chapter’s coverage Key Factors summarize the central issues that underpin good practice Questions Unresolved close each chapter, identifying areas of uncertainty and prompting investigations directed at advancing knowledge and application within relevant fields The COST Manual of Laboratory Animal Care and Use: Refinement, Reduction, and Research is the reference sure to be found in the lab coats of those responsible for the care and welfare of animals and those overseeing and conducting activities related to the use of animals for scientific purposes.
