Making lives easier for animals in research labs : discussions by the Laboratory Animal Refinement & Enrichment Forum( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a collection of electronic discussions that took place on the Animal Welfare Institute's Laboratory Animal Refinement & Enrichment Forum between October 2002 and May 2007. Comments are based upon first-hand experiences about ways to improve the conditions under which animals are housed and handled in research facilities. Animals discussed include mice and other rodents, rabbits, farm animals, rhesus macaques and other nonhuman primates, dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians. Topics include housing, environmental enrichment, animal training, safety issues, maladaptive behaviors, and the human-animal relationship

How to improve housing conditions of laboratory animals: The possibilities of environmental refinement: by Vera Baumans( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Housing systems for captive animals have often been designed on the basis of economic and ergonomic considerations, such as equipment, costs, space, workload, ability to observe the animals and to maintain a certain degree of hygiene, with little or no consideration for animal welfare. Environmental refinement can be defined as any modification in the environment of captive animals that seeks to enhance the physical and psychological well-being of the animals by providing stimuli which meet the animals' species-specific needs. This article provides an overview of environmental factors that influence the well-being of captive animals with specific reference to the needs of the most common laboratory species.It is important to evaluate environmental refinement in terms of the benefit to the animal, by assessing the use of and preference for certain enrichment, the effect on behaviour, and the performance of species-typical behaviour on physiological parameters. It is also necessary to evaluate the impact of refinement on scientific outcome, including whether and how statistical power is affected. Communication and team work between animal welfare scientists, animal research scientists, institutional animal welfare officers, veterinarians and animal ethics committees, animal facility management and personnel, are essential for success. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd

Standardisation of environmental enrichment for laboratory mice and rats: Utilisation, practicality and variation in experimental results: by Vera Baumans( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Rats and mice are the most commonly used species as laboratory animal models of diseases in biomedical research. Environmental factors such as cage size, number of cage mates and cage structure such as environmental enrichment can affect the physiology and behavioural development of laboratory animals and their well-being throughout their lives. Therefore compromising the animals' well-being due to inadequate environmental conditions would diminish the value of the research models. In order to improve laboratory animals' well-being and promote the quality of animal based biomedical research, it is fundamentally important that the environment of the animals meets the animals' species typical behavioural needs. Standardisation of environmental enrichment for laboratory rats and mice therefore should provide possibilities for the animals to engage in at least the essential behavioural needs such as social contact, nest building, exploring and foraging. There is a wide variety of environmental enrichment items commercially available for laboratory mice and rats. However, how these items are used by the animals, their practicality in the laboratory and whether these enrichments might lead to increased variation in experimental results have not been widely assessed. In this study, we implemented two standardised enrichment items (shelters, nesting materials) for rats and mice at different animal units. We instructed the animal care staff in monitoring the use of enrichment items by the animals by means of a daily score sheet system. The animal staff's viewpoint on practicality of the standardised enrichment program was assessed with a monthly score sheet survey. Also we assessed whether the enriched environment affected breeding results and contributed to an increase in variation of experimental data from several participating current studies. Our results show that the animals readily used the provided enrichment items. A slight increase in workload for the animal staff w
