The use of animals for research, teaching and testing is a privilege, one that comes with important responsibilities: to ensure that good science is done; to meet our ethical responsibilities for ensuring that every animal is treated humanely and not subjected to unnecessary pain or distress, and; to work within the accepted standards for experimental animal care and use. All Animal Use Protocols (.pdf) are reviewed by the University of Saskatchewan Animal Care Committee (UACC).
