Laboratory Animal Welfare is a complete overview of the burgeoning science of animal welfare from its inception through to today with an up-to-date focus on the welfare of specific species used in laboratory research.



Laboratory Animal Welfare provides a comprehensive, up-to-date look into the new science of animal welfare within laboratory research. Animals specifically considered include rodents, cats and dogs, nonhuman primates, agricultural animals, avian animals and aquatic animals.

The book examines the impact of experiment design and environment on animal welfare, as well as emergency situations and euthanasia practices. Readers will benefit from a review of regulations and policy guidelines concerning lab animal use, as well as information on assessing animal welfare. With discussions of the history and ethics of animals in research, and a debate on contemporary and international issues, this book is a go-to resource for laboratory animal welfare.


Researchers working with laboratory animal species, academic, government, and corporate sectors across the biological and biomedical sciences.
