Faculty of Veterinary Medicine
Laboratory animals pay high tributes to modern medicine and science whereby they contribute to a continuous development and improvement of our living conditions. Because of this, we carry a high responsibility towards every single individual animal. The course teaches the basics to assume this responsibility.
Topics are international and national legislation of animal experimentation and the 3R principle, which is a guidance in laboratory animal science. Biology and ethology of commune laboratory animal species and their need in housing and husbandry are taught as well as different animal models and their impact on individuals. By the end of this course students are able to identify pain, suffering and distress in laboratory animals and to recognize refinement options.
