All material combined into one volume for ease of reference. 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.
