Veterinary Care and Management

The use of laboratory Animals in Scientific Research has been a subject of debate for over a century. Though the animals were first used in research in second century AD their systematic use in research began about 100 years ago, when vaccines for polio and rabies came up for production. Since then, the animals have been used in research investigations and production of biologicals and have played an important role in unfolding vital information about the human and animal life processes. This has helped in the advancement of medicine, development of drugs, diagnostics and production of biologicals for alleviating sufferings of both human and animals. adequate veterinary care is an integral component of humane animal care and use in research, teaching and testing and further, that the state of animal well-being ensured through adequate veterinary care is essential to reliability of results from experimentation with animals.
