The source of animals is important for the overall health and research suitability of animal colonies accepted and housed in FAU animal facilities.
The Attending Veterinarian establishes a list of approved vendors based on the health status of the animals provided, the vendor’s health surveillance program(s), shipping arrangements, alert system for possible disease outbreaks and other relevant information. Vendors of uncommon laboratory animal species are contacted, their animal husbandry and care practices discussed, health related records secured if possible and after careful review of all relevant information approved by the AV.
This list is reviewed and updated regularly. Animals provided by approved vendors will enter animal housing facilities without quarantine unless study or facility specific requirements must be met. Nevertheless, all animals received need to be acclimated as per IACUC Policy.
