Reviews


 "It is evident that ANYONE involved in animal experiment research whether veterinarian, veterinary technician or laboratory technician, needs exposure to this resource. While Part 2 demonstrates unique information to individual species and can be utilized accordingly, Part 1 is significant in teaching ideologies in animal welfare and provides detailed guidelines for any practice, facility or organization. All encompassing, it is a significant resource that proves to move animal welfare in the right direction and guide the global research community in ethical care of animals for both the sake of animals, better science, and future advancements." (VSPN, February 2011)

"In summary, this is a must-have book for those working with research animals. However, it is much more than that: the principles of thoughtful use and care of animals are widely applicable to other veterinary relationships too, whether pet, farm or zoo animals. I recommend it to vets, nurses and students with an interest in and concern for the ethical use of all non-human animals." (The Veterinary Record, January 2011)

"And this perfect balance between theory and practice continues throughout the volume both in the broad introductory chapters and the species-specific sections. In summary this is an excellent addition to UFAW's seminal collection of animal welfare texts." (Veterinary Practice, November 2010)
